"All Neon Like" as written by and Bjork Gudmundsdottir....
Not 'til you halo all over me
I'll come over
Not 'til it shimmers 'round your skull
I'll be yours

I weave for you
The marvellous web
Glow in the dark threads
All neon like

The cocoon surrounds you
Embraces all
So you can sleep
Foetus-style

And they will assist us
'Cause we're asking for help
And the luminous beam
It feeds you
Henh-yeah, henh-yeah

The soft distortion
Fills you up
Nourish nourish
Your turtleheart

And they will assist us
'Cause we're asking for help
And the luminous beam
It feeds you
Henh-yeah, yeah

Don't get angry with yourself
Don't, don't get angry with yourself
I'll heal you

With a razorblade
I'll cut a slit open
And the luminous beam
Feeds you honey, heals you

Don't get angry with yourself
Don't get angry with yourself
Don't get angry with yourself
Don't get angry with yourself
I'll heal you
I'll heal you
Luminous
I'll heal you

    General CommentI remember an interview she did on the radio all these years back. She was talking to him about some stuff and then she spurted out:"It's like a web, you all, all woven like a cocoon" That's paraphrasing, by the way, but I felt then and there that it was a wonderful streak of imagination, in seeing the cosmos as a string of webs.

    I'm quite attached to this song because I was recovering from a serious accident when it was released. "Nourish your turtlehearts" was a source of strength for me back then. Of course, hearing a gorgeous voice candidly whispering:"I'll heal you" held special meaning. "I'll cut a slit open", yes that's nice too, as a compliment to that scar I received for my hospitalization, as scar which, for anyone not asking the question, looks roughly like Iceland. That's right, I've been carrying Iceland for ten years now.

    I am also fond of the words "and they will assist us/cause we're asking for help". I feel the world is filled with generous souls, yet that energy has so few channels.

    Let the healing commence!

    General Commentthis song- okay- imagine having someone that you love so very much that it hurts and you want to do everything for them- take care of that person- She is saying she's putting a coccoon around this person and feeding and nourishing he/she with a luminous beam! she heals- feels- saves- amplifies- feeds! she cuts a slit open and gives herself - body mind and soul- eat me- eat my inside emotion- feed off of me- i am yours- i am here to cherish your every move------------

    General CommentOH MY GOD, NO ONE HAS COMMENTED ON THIS SONG. One of the most powerful and mesmerizing songs ever to be written and produced, A.N.L. is an angel incarnate, and really isn't appreciated unless you see the performance she gives on Live at Cambridge dvd.

    General CommentDamn this girl is deep. I didn't discover this song till I was a true Bjork fan and when I did I was amazed by it and that Bjork truly makes great music. Even her less popular songs have a great meaning (like all her music). I feel this song is about her giving to her lover and both of them asking God (the universe) for help. Also a very rhythmic song..

    General CommentI dreaded this song when I first heard it (along with 5 Years, which is now a favorite), but when I forgot to switch from Bachelorette to Immature, this song started playing and it grew on me. I feel as if Bjork is giving aid/assistance of some kind. It's as if she is some kind of maternal goddess.

    Song MeaningMost of Bjork's songs are like shamanics prayers. This is a perfect example of this. She will be heavenly forces when the protect of them are on her. The shamanism teaches that similar energy will be found. She, to marvelous web, seeks to bring on himself all the good things in the universe. And this web glows like neon.)This web, like cocon, protect you how like a baby in the womb of her mother.The meaning of this music is protected and self-healing. Bjork is a kind of religion.
