Bjork – Moon lyrics

As the lukewarm hands of the gods

Came down and gently picked my adrenaline pearls
They placed them in their mouths
And rinsed all of the fear out
Nourished them with their saliva

Now I'm all rejuvenated and rested
Now I'm all rejuvenated and rested

As if the healthiest past-time
Is being in life-threatening circumstances
And once again be reborn

All birthed and happy
All birthed and happy
All birthed and happy
All birthed and happy

Best way to start-a-new
Is to fail miserably
Fail at loving
And fail at giving
Fail at creating a flow
Then realign the whole
And kick into the start hole

And kick into the start hole
And kick into the start hole

To risk all is the end all and the beginning all
To risk all is the end all and the beginning all

    In the first few stanzas she's talking about sleep (what we do when the moon is out) and how our body's letting go of adrenaline is what allows us to fall asleep. As biological creatures we're actually in grave danger when we're asleep because we're defenseless. Many animals sleep in packs with designated "watchmen" to avoid this dangerous state. Others only allow half of their body to sleep at a time so that the other half can remain alert (this is true). Ironically, putting ourselves in this life threatening state is what calms and rejuvenates us! In this same way, the way we are rejuvenated in relationships is when we hit rock bottom, let go and dare to try again. The moon is a good metaphor for these cycles as it makes it's course from full to invisible and back again.
