Cigarettes and Whiskey and Wild, Wild Women

“Cigarettes and Whiskey and Wild, Wild Women” 

Perhaps I was born kneeling, 
born coughing on the long winter, 
born expecting the kiss of mercy, 
born with a passion for quickness
and yet, as things progressed, 
I learned early about the stockade
or taken out, the fume of the enema.
By two or three I learned not to kneel, 
not to expect, to plant my fires underground
where none but the dolls, perfect and awful, 
could be whispered to or laid down to die.

Now that I have written many words, 
and let out so many loves, for so many, 
and been altogether what I always was—
a woman of excess, of zeal and greed, 
I find the effort useless.
Do I not look in the mirror, 
these days, 
and see a drunken rat avert her eyes? 
Do I not feel the hunger so acutely
that I would rather die than look
into its face? 
I kneel once more, 
in case mercy should come
in the nick of time.”

Bjork - 5 Years 

You think you’re denying me of something
Well I’ve got plenty
You’re the one who’s missing out
But you won’t notice
'Til after five years
If you’ll live that long
You’ll wake up 
All loveless

I dare you
To take me on
I dare you
To show me your palms

I’m so bored with cowards
That say they want
Then they can’t handle

You can’t handle love
You can’t handle love
You just can’t handle

I dare you
To take me on
I dare you
To show me your palms

What’s so scary ?
Not a threat in sight
You just can’t handle
You can’t handle love

You can’t handle love, baby
You can’t handle love
It’s obvious
You can’t handle

I dare you
To take me on
I dare you
To show me your palms

I’m so bored of cowards
That say they want
Then they can’t handle

You can’t handle love, baby
You can’t handle love,
It’s obvious
You can’t handle

I dare you, I dare you
I dare you, I dare you

#Bjork  #5 Years  #Homogenic 

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain,
I like watchin’ the puddles gather rain.
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
And speak my point of view but it’s not sane.
It’s not sane.
I just want someone to say to me, oh,
I’ll always be there when you wake, yeah.
Ya know I’d like to keep my cheeks dry today.
So stay with me and I’ll have it made.
And I don’t understand why sleep all day
And I start to complain that there’s no rain.
And all I can do is read a book to stay awake,
And it rips my life away but it’s a great escape.
Escape, escape, escape.

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain,
Ya don’t like my point of view,
Ya think that I’m insane.
It’s not sane, it’s not sane.

I just want someone to say to me, oh, oh, oh
I’ll always be there when you wake, yeah.
Ya know I’d like to keep my cheeks dry today.
So stay with me and I’ll have it made.
Oh. Oh. Oh.
