"Sacrifice" as written by and Bj�rk Gudmundsdottir....
Why can't you give her room
Respect her spatial needs
I feel you compress her
Into a small space

With clairvoyance
She knew what you needed
And she gave it to you
Now her desires are repressed
Arrows smooth the flesh

When she found your love
Her nature bowed her head
She surrendered
She renounced the world for you
Now she's poisoned by demands
You cannot answer

Why this sacrifice
Now she regrets the whole thing
A delayed reaction
When she left her craft voluntarily
For your nest, for your love
Did you understand

Appreciate
Build a bridge to her
Initiate a touch
Before it's too late
Say the words to her
That will make her shine
Tell her that you love her

Your generosity will show
In volume of her glow
Your generosity will show
In volume of her glow
Your generosity will show
In volume of her glow

    My InterpretationThis song is a sort of follow-up to "Vertebrae by Vertebrae". Both discusss, in my opinion, the way nature has been abused. But while Vertebrae by Vertebrae talks about how nature is sort of dangerous, Sacrifice is begging the listener to pay attention to nature, to form a bond with it.
