(lyrics by björk & sjón)

one breath away from mother Oceanía
your nimble feet make prints
in my sands
you have done good for yourselves
since you left my wet embrace
and crawled ashore
every boy is a snake is a lily
every pearl is a lynx is a girl

sweet like harmony made into flesh
you dance by my side
children sublime
you show me continents
- i see islands
you count the centuries
- i blink my eyes

hawks and sparrows race in my waters
stingrays are floating
across the sky
little ones - my sons and my daughters
your sweat is salty
i am why
