Bjork - Mouths Cradle Lyrics



There is yet another one
That follows me
Where ever I go
And supports me
This tooth is warmth-like
And these teeth are a ladder up to his mouth
These teeth are a ladder that I walk
That you can walk too if you want
If you want up to the mouth
The mouth's cradle
Up to the mouth's cradle
He always has a hope for me
Always sees me when nothing else
And everyone have left
That ghost is brighter than anyone
And fulfils me with hope

And you can use these teeth as a ladder
Up to the mouth's cradle, the mouth's cradle
And you can follow these notes i'm singing
Up to the mouth's cradle, the mouth's cradle
The simplicity of the ghost-like beast
The purity of what it wants and where it goes

Always love, always loves you, always loves you
Infrared love

And you can use these teeth as a ladder
Up to the mouth's cradle, the mouth's cradle
And you can use these teeth follow my voice
Tooth by tooth
Up to the mouth's cradle, the mouth's cradle

I need a shelter to build an altar away
From all osamas and bushes

    Jeldadein Pra Aoiz

    She says they are both terroristes, I think.

    Misty Mockingbird

    Why does some artist from Iceland give a hoot about American politics? Weird.

  12. Champs

    "There is yet another one that follows me
    Where ever I go and supports me "
    "He always has a hope for me
    Always sees me when nothing else
    And everyone have left
    That ghost is brighter than anyone
    And fulfils me with hope "
    "The simplicity of the ghost-like beast
    The purity of what it wants and where it goes
    Always love, always loves you, always loves you
    Infrared love "

    These lyrics are so optimistic and full of positive emotions.

    SaltpeterTaffy

    It's about breastfeeding.

  13. Thibault

    the parts when she says "a ladder up" are slaying my life.

  14. Masky Parker

    I love how she incorporates all of the different voices for the background music.

  15. Wolf Holt

    The human voice is an amazing instrument unto it's own. This recording , indeed this whole album, is a wonderful example of this . Bjork has always been an innovator and for that I love her. Love her music and the way she has of doing things. I've long been a fan and have seen her live which is an experience I shall always hold close to myself , not to mention I would actually thousands to see her again in the right setting.

  16. Robert Alonzo Lisboa

    I feel genius is too little of a vast description for the mind of Bjork & her entire world of art.

    Masky Parker

    Robert Lisboa I agree

  17. lisa mays

    I remember buying the cd at Virgin records dam I feel old lol

  18. Luke Boyd

    unison. best song

    amusedbygod

    "Unison" is from "Vespertine".

  19. greenpurpleist

    there is so much going on here but it all fits together perfectly. children centuries from now will be studying bjork in school.

    Thibault

    i hope so-

    John Winstead

    I think so too. The greatest musician of this time

  20. Vojtěch Mikloš

    Omg how had i never heard this song before? Medúlla is trully special album, i gave it a chance when i heard "where is the line" live. It's weird even compared to Björk's standards, but some of it's songs are just perfect, this being my new favourite

  21. peelsreklaw

    Please do yourself a favor and listen to this with good headphones or speakers. The base line adds so much, along with all the other subtleties.

    sh2master

    +peelsreklaw
    Yeah I actually didn't realize that most sounds on this album are human voices until I used good headphones.

    and maybe don't use this stream 'couse it's terrible

  22. yez

    please keep creating great songs like this, stonemilker, hidden place...

  23. Melanie Brandt

    +Shamil Basayev, I have experienced BJORK live....once with The Sugarcubes and once on her own! AMAZING, yes!!!!

  24. Melanie Brandt

    This song stays in my head most days.

    Shamil Basayev

    @melanie brandt Made entirely with the sound of voice. Musically perfect, no one can duplicate something like this , indeed the most original of musicians Bjork just oozes talent and is awe inspiring to us all. I recommend you see her live. It's an experience you will never forget.

  25. SuperStimulatedMinotaur

    Mike Patton.

  26. yoji0

    An old classic, even if I have no idea what the hell she's on about

    Additon

    Its about breastfeeding. her daughter was almost 2 years old when she published the song

    ungarsdu38

    @Additon @yoji0 the song is about the fearmongering speeches spouted by politicians and religious leaders round the world, always in the name of love and compassion, but really to consolidate their own power (and more prcisely about GW Bush's war rethorics). The "mouth's craddle" is the comfort people often find in simple answers (aka oversimplifications and scapegoating) to complex geopolitical problems... imo one of her best songs <3

    * some lyrics :
    the ghost is brighter than anyone
    And fulfils me with hope (...)
    the simplicity of the ghost-like beast
    the purity of what it wants and where it goes
    always love, always loves you, always loves you, infrared love...
    and you can follow its teeth like a ladder, a ladder up to the mouth's craddle

    * the very last sentence of the song:
    I need a shelter to build an altar away
    From all Osamas and Bushes

  27. Jay Mechem

    Music is awesome! Bjork gives us her version of her her vision, thank you Bjork!

  28. Antonio Aguilar

    My favorite song from Medulla too.

    Ida Hilden

  31. BearWindAppleyard
