"My Snare (aka Nature Is Ancient )" as written by Bj�rk Gudmundsdottir and Mark Bell....
It's soft in the middle
With a shell around it
It's called life

It goes wherever it wants to
Don't try to predict it
Then you'd offend it
It's meant to surprise

Nature is ancient
But surprises us all
Nature is ancient
But surprises us all

Rescue me
From level-head-ness
And the unnecessary luxury of being calm

Nature is ancient
But surprises us all
Nature is ancient
But surprises us all

She's got dark hair on her head
Blood on her arms
She sneaks up from behind
Come on
You deserve it!

    amazing song!!!
    I think Björk have a very different point of view about everything.. i just love the way she describes life and mother earth in this song..
    some people don't get the meaning at first time they listen her songs.. but I just love the way she express herself

    My InterpretationIt's -

    "She's got dark hair on her head
    Blonde on her arms"

    she is referencing herself as part of that unique suprise genetically,she is mocking all the rational creatures who try and control and predict all manner of life and don't allow to it unfold in any natural way to destroy or ressurect.
