She should have seen the thing in mother's belly
Grew up along side her sister of ethnical
She reached up for nourishment and fall from her mother's umbilical cord
With her sister in the womb

One day she opened her mouth wide and swallowed wide her surroundings
The red, and orange and the sounds all around her
Now she was in her corner
Now she was in her corner
Her eyes closed with some kind of complete
Happiness
Some kind of complete
Happiness

Now she can walk in the sunlight with a quiet of relief inside her
Now she walks in the sunlight
An extra feeling inside her soul, makes her cry

In her mother's belly her mouth opens wide her sister
One day she opens her mouth wide and swallows her surroundings
The red, and orange and the sounds all around her
In the sunlight, makes it go away
Now she was in her corner
In the sunlight
Now she was in her corner she listens.
Her eyes closed with some kind of complete
Happiness
Some kind of complete
Happiness

And now she walks in the sunlight
With the extra feeling, inside her
Now she walks in the sunlight
With the extra feeling, inside her
Inside her

    General Commentsuch a heavy song, it almost looks like a bizarre Gabriel Garcia Marquez's tale. I love it

    General Commentman this song is so heavy, but i can't pin the reference. i know i've heard the story or a poem or something about a twin who has to swallow her sister who isn't going to escape the womb at birth to keep their connection...
