    General CommentI always think of films like Lilya 4-ever whenever I listen to this song...I think of the poor children who have been abused and have died over the years and it's like they are part of the choir, singing from a place of freedom and safety. The way the song swells and swells before closing with the simple loop is just so incredibly beautiful.

    General Commentfrom what i've heard and can tell the lyrics go

    This is my weakness
    Oooh I go home, home with him
    (Repeat.)
    im my view this song destroys natural blues when it comes to sollominity.

    General CommentOk. Finally did the smart thing and searched Moby's official website, trying to get the final word on the lyrics. This is one of my favorites, but I find that every time I listen I'm tryin' to figure out what they're saying. Anyway, I found an interview with Moby, and one of the questions was about the lyrics to this one and Honey. Moby stated that the lyrics in My Weakness were in some obscure African dialect, and he didn't know what it meant. Here's a link to the interview:
    moby.com/journal/2001-03-01/…

    Anyone out there know anything about any African languages? It may even be an evolved dialect from French. It'd be cool if we could get this translated at least somewhat.

    General Commentthe episode of xfiles where mulder finds the truth about what happened to his longlost sister (closure) is one of the saddest things i've ever seen. this song is playing throughout the scene and brings so much to it, i can't listen to this song now without a tear...sorry, i've realised how stupid this all is, but i don't care. this song rules!

    General Commentyeah, what the hell are they saying in the sample that is repeated throughout the song? I really can't tell. Nonetheless, this song is absolutely beautiful. It has made me cry a number of times just because of the overwhelming emotion it contains without having lots of articulate lyrics....just through the music.

    The best Moby song. Another beautiful one is God Moving over the Face of the Waters.

    General CommentAfter listing to the song so many times, it sounds like it is saying the following:

    "Deep in my weakness to wash over me."

    I'm not sure what it means. But its still a good song, no matter what the lyrics are. :)

    General CommentI learned about Moby from that X-Files episode--as soon as it was over, I was racing to figure out who did this song. This is a piece of music that I can put on "repeat" and listen to, literally, for an hour without getting sick of it. The music builds and ebbs like a tide.

    I've seen another interpretation of the lyrics (if you can call them that) but I believe they are singing in an African language, not English, and therefore are unintelligible.
