"Cover Me" as written by and Bjork Gudmundsdottir....
While I crawl into the unknown
Cover me
I'm going hunting for mysteries
Cover me

I'm going to prove the impossible really exists
This is really dangerous
Cover me
But worth all the effort
Cover me

I'm going to prove the impossible really exists

    General CommentBecause of it's spokyness I think she is referring to contacting the ancestors. It seems to be as if she is very spiritual and may be into magick and shamanism (since she refers to voudoo in earh intruders in making the world a better place) and whenever u go to speak to the Gods/Anscestors or spirits you need a shield of protection and its is a dangerous task. She also could jus tbe referring to everyday life dealing with doubter and unbelievers, whenever dealign with those low frequency type of thinkers...its always dangerous!

    General CommentThis is my favorite Björk song because it reminds me of myself. I'm going to prove the impossible really exists whether you'll believe me or not! I will go hunting for mysteries whether you like it or not!
    It will be worth all of the effort...

    General CommentThis remix of this song on Telegram is haunting.

    Bjork's songs are spiritual, in a sense, and I am glad she too believes there are mysteries to be explored.

    General CommentOops I confused the remix of Headphones with this song. Sorry. :-P

    The cave version of this song on the Family Tree Box set is kinda spooky though. Famil Tree was the first Bjork CD I actually bought. I love it.

    General CommentBjörk's method of album making can be "dangerous," but it's worth it.

    My InterpretationThe meaning of this works on a few levels. Going hunting into the unknown of our psyches, it can be dangerous, but with the right spirit, and help from others sometimes, it's worth it. I wouldn't like to presume Bjorks inspiration for it.

    The Plaid remix of this song on the Hyperballad EP is one of my fave ever songs, and takes Bjorks original masterpiece to a much deeper and darker level.

    It reminds me of being in the stark elemental landscape of Iceland. Go hunting for mysteries up there and you will find danger and it will be worth it, just hope the cover you get is not snow or volcanic ash like it was nearly with me!
