Bjork – Earth Intruders lyrics

Earth intruders

We are the earth intruders
We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches

Turmoil! Carnage!

Here come the earth intruders
We are the paratroopers
Stampede of sharpshooters
Come straight from voodoo

With our feet thumping
With our feet marching
Grinding skeptics into the soil

Shower of goodness
Coming to end the doubt pouring over
Shower of goodness coming to end

We are the earth intruders
We are the sharp shooters
Flock of parashooters
Necessary voodoo

I have guided my bones
Through some voltage
And loved them still
And loved them too

Metallic carnage!
Ferocity!
Feel the speed!

We are the earth intruders
We are the sharp shooters
Flock of parashooters
Necessary voodoo

There is turmoil out there
Carnage! rambling!

What is to do but dig
Dig bones out of earth
Mudgraves! Timber!
Morbid trenches!

Here come the earth intruders
Stampede of resistance
We are the canoneers
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 intruders
We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches

We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches
We are the earth intruders

We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches
Marching

We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches
Marching

March
March
March

    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.
