"Moon" as written by Bj�rk Gudmundsdottir and Damian Taylor....
As the lukewarm hands of the Gods
Came down and gently picked my adrenaline pearls
They placed them in their mouths
And rinsed all of the fear out
Nourished them with their saliva

Oh rested, as if the healthiest past time
Is being in life threatening circumstances
And once again be reborn

(All birthed and happy)
All birthed and happy
(All birthed and happy)
All birthed and happy
(All birthed and happy)

Best way to start the new is to fail miserably
Fail at loving and fail at giving
Fail at creating a flow then realign the whole
And kick into the start hole

And kick into the start hole
And kick into the start hole

To risk all is the end all and the beginning all
To risk all is the end all and the beginning all

    General CommentIf biophilia is in relation to Erich Fromm's work somehow. Then this song may have to do with trancending from the loveless culture and power dynamic systems in place today. Most people emerge from it with ptsd's

    General CommentLuv this track, especially "best way to start-a-new is to fail miserably; fail at loving and fail at giving; fail at creating a flow then realign the whole and kick into the start hole." It's about hitting rock bottom and having no way to go but up. From what I've read, the album will fare well with listeners.

    My InterpretationI couldn't agree with @MaryMaryQuiteContrary more.

    It's about having all your energy drained from disappointment and failure, no matter what your circumstances (work, life, relationships) are and learning from them and being reborn.

    General CommentI feel that this song is about human having to fail, for the humans to understand that we can't trust capitalism. That we need to connect back to mother nature. I think that one day there will be consequences so terrible, that we will have to change the way we think and see things. But as Björk sings, we have to fail and then reborn. Like we have done throughout history.

    My InterpretationThis is one of my favorite Bjork songs. Bjork is one of my favorite artists, she's amazing.

    I think the message of this song is both complex and simple, at the same time. "To risk all is to end all and the beginning of all."

    To begin anew, you must be willing to take risks and embrace the possibility of failure. Because by encountering loss and failure and feeing as though you'd lost everything, you just may have actually opened the door for something even better to come through. Or - if you can be happy and content with nothing or little, it's the deepest kind of happiness because it cannot be taken away from you. Sort of like the Tao Te Ching saying - "If you want to be given everything, give everything up."

    Great Song!
