Bjork - Innocence Lyrics



I once had no fears
None at all
And then when
I had some

To my surprise
I grew to like both
Scared or brave
Without them

The thrill of fear
Thought I'd never admit it
The thrill of fear
Now greatly enjoyed with courage

When I once was
Untouchable
Innocence roared
Still amazes

When I once was
Innocent
It's still here
But in different places

Neurosis
Only
Attaches
Itself to
Fertile
Ground
Where it can flourish

The thrill of fear
Thought I'd never admit it
The thrill of fear
Now greatly enjoyed with courage

When I once was
Fearless
Innocence roared
Still amazes

Untouchable
Innocence
It's still here
But in different places

Fear is a powerful drug
Overcome it and
You think that you can do
Anything!

Should I
Save myself
For later
Or generously give?

Fear of
Losing
Energy
Is draining

It locks up your chest
Shuts down the heart
Miserly
And stingy
Let's open up : share!

When I once was
Fearless
Innocence roared
Still amazes

Untouchable
Innocence
It's still here
But in different places

Bjork Innocence Comments
  1. random whitekid

    I can just imagine a DJ on stage mixing live to this and it would be fucking insane

  2. FOAMER

    I now understand where deathgrips came from

  3. Mity D

    Collab with SOPHIE

  4. Ro 3D Puppetteer

    That instrumental is from Ssthop by Garlic Bread,also prod. by Timbaland WTF?!?!? Mind fuck!

  5. ale gonzalez

    Oddly this gave me Blackout Britney vibes
    Then I found out Danja produced this, it made sense.

    Shy Stone

    Yeah, very similar sounds!

  6. Unreleased/Underrated R&B Grooves

    Timbaland and these hot ass beats! I swear you couldn' tell him nothin' during the 1996-2007 era of his magical touch. Was so pleased to learn by way of a rare 2004 interview, Bjork shared that she was a big fan of him & Missy Elliott (even had Missy's deep album cut "Slide" on her iPod Shuffle lol) and was willing to work with them on the "Volta" project. Though Missy didn't make the cut, I appreciate that Timbaland was and was able to produce something that was reminiscent of a joint that he and Missy would produce. "Birth of a completely new genre" as coined by Adam Levine of Maroon 5 when he praised the pair's & Destiny's Child work via "Huffington Post" in 2010.

  11. rebjiii

    Is this the only decent song on VOLTA ?

    Gabriel Henri

    Declare Independence!

    Emma cloud1068

    Gabriel Henriquez nooooo

    Emma cloud1068

    Gabriel Henriquez to me it was more sound than a song

    Aimon Beehive

    The Dull Flame of Desire, Pneumonia, Hope!
    Magical Songs

    Mark Wallner

    Nah there are several. “Wanderlust” being one of them.

  12. Supple Chap

    This song has such a weird vibe.

    Tom Ryan

    I love this song! The beat and sound are infectious. Bjork is tremendous.

  13. Ralph Richter

    One of the worst songs of all time.

    John Smith

    Patchy Pirate D:

    lalala like this

    How so?

  14. Ghiaccio Frame

    This song holds some strong power that I can't even explain without sounding like an alien! I love it so much and Bjork is a talented woman! <3

  15. Scuffs Mcgee

    Hey guys I bet you know they used the pp7 shot effect from Goldeneye 64....But did you know there's another video game sample in this song?

    The almost bell sounding break in the intro (and played throughout parts of the song) is a sped up song from Shadow Man on the Nintendo 64. You can hear it here https://youtu.be/cKYg6ncIIq0?t=67 (at around 1:07 if the link doesn't already play it there). I noticed this forever ago, but never saw anyone talking about it.

    Hopefully someone gets to read this and be just as surprised at the choice of samples in this song.

    da-bohmb

    Scuffs Mcgee wow!

    Fernando Lerma

    WOW all you do say its true, do yo have the list complete of samples in VOLTA?

    s a

    unfortunately its just a stock sound you can buy off a website and is found is more games and cartoons, not specifically related to that game

  16. atdhe behluli

    this is 10 years old now

    Joe Nathan

    atdhe behluli no need for that. It’s timeless and so is Björk

  17. WKA DESIGNS

    Björk and Timbaland are few of the last OG's that can create beats that kick this much ass!  Missy Elliott also comes to mind.

    Bitchcraft Witch

    WKA DESIGNS bRUH IM NEXT BABE

  18. Thitoss

    I loooooove the punching sound this song is crazy, love it love it love it

  19. David Galán

    Where Is The Line + Earth Intruders = This

    Alex Chasirides

    innocence

  20. Vojtěch Mikloš

    And again, björk doing tons of things first here. So now, i know where does that "drop the beat" trend comes from. 3:17
    I might be wrong, but she used it here 5 years before it started to be popular.

    Andy Holloway

    Nah that's an old trope of electronic music that goes back to early House days in '80s :)

  21. Ronald Elston

    bjork and timberland together genius enough said!

  22. momoringluv

    Omg it sounds like her vocals were recorded on a potato wtf

  23. skinny9283

  24. Ingrid Beatriz

    💙💙💙💙 forgot about this song... amazed again

  25. Te Antonín

    aún está pero en diferentes lugares :)

  26. MüMüzik Psyxie

    brought here because of bjork

  27. Vasterien

    Han, Shadow Man sample...

    Supple Chap

    What? Shadow man?

    Vasterien

    Oh, I wasn't speaking about you, uh uh. But the sample used in the beginning of the song is also present in the theme "Playroom" from the game Shadowman ^^

    Fernando Lerma

    Wow its true, do you have the complete list of samples in VOLTA?

  28. taz coles

    Brought here by the queen known as Mitch grassi

    razrv3lc

    HA FOR ONCE I ALREADY KNEW THE SONG THAT HE LINKED! Usually I don't get to brag about loving a song before he recommends it, so excuse my caps lock. This whole album is amazing. Earth Intruders, Vertebrae by Vertebrae (my favorite), and Pneumonia are my favorites.

    Güvenç Arı

    When did he recommend it? WHEN??

    Dean Socall

    @Güvenç Arı It was Feb 26

    Güvenç Arı

    On Twitter ?

  29. Danny Garfield

    That... is unambiguously... the Walter PP7 from Goldeneye.

    da-bohmb

    Specifically the silenced version

  30. MrDemimonde

    I never get tired of the bridge, so much going on with her vocals there.

  31. Devin Tucker

    People probably don't know that Timbaland produced this
