We are the earth intruders We are the earth intruders Muddy with twigs and branches A-haaaaaa!Turmoil! Carnaaaaa-ge!Here come the earth intruders We are the paratroopers The beat of sharpshooters Comes straight from voodoo With our feet thumbing With our feet marching Grinding the skeptics into the soilShower of goodness coming to end the doubt—pouring over Shower of goodness coming to end We are the earth intruders We are the sharpshooters Flock of parachuters Necessary voodooI have guided my bones through some voltage And love them still And love them too Metallic Carnage Furiousity Feel the speed! We are the earth intruders We are the sharpshooters, Flock of parachuters Necessary voodoo There is turmoil out there Carnage! Rambling! What is to do but dig Dig bones out of earth Mud graves Timber Morbid trenches Here come the earth intruders There’ll be no resistance We are the cannoneers Necessary voodoo And the beast with many heads and arms rolling Steamroller!We are the earth intruders We are the earth intruders Muddy with twigs and branches Forgive this tribe!We are the earth intrudersWe are the earth intrudersMuddy with twigs and branchesWe are the earth intrudersMuddy with twigs and branchesWe are the earth intrudersA-haaaaa!We are the earth intrudersMuddy with twigs and branchesMarching!We are the earth intrudersMuddy with twigs and branchesMarching!MarchMarchMarchWe are the earth intrudersMuddy with twigs and branchesMarching voodoo!

    I think what Bjork is trying to say, or at least what it means to me, is that WE are the "Earth intruders". We have taken over this world, and molded it to our twisted vision. "They'll be no resistance" she says, and that's true, we took over the world with nothing really in our way. Also, at the end of the song, you hear the sounds of ships, and factories... What do you think THAT symbolises, eh? The one line that really stands out when talking about this song is "Forgive this tribe!" Yes, we started out as one small tribe, and look what we've done. Now, the only question is that of, should we be forgiven? Are we really as bad as that? Think about it...
