CocoRosie – Fairy Paradise lyrics
He draws near the periphery
In disbelief on delivery
Came child from the deep inferno
Crusty head of dead volcano
Heartless crow with brittle beak
Wooden leg too shocked to speak
Lilac dust of a woman's hair
A wooden cross a paper prayer
A stone where her body lay
A stack of feathers a pile of hay
A mushroom for an eye ball
A mustache from the snow fall
Worms weave a ring where fairies square dance
Queens weave wigs with eyelash
Trance music makes the fairies dance
From the caves of snail shells
Echoes the mutter medieval spells
Mystery flows her wicked river
Of thorn and blade and silver sliver
Bending 'round the clover fields
Their sapling stems don't break but yield
Her pain inflicts no arguments
Must learn to sway and un-arrange
As earth she makes her final passage
After humans long have ravaged

Vanished with all maps for motion
Upward angels last devotion
One by one escort us home
To leave the elementals free to roam
To bathe in the last of ocean's foam
To beach comb the nuclear debris
Our plastic toys and our metal trees
Once blew the pollen the feet of bees
Now cry the stars when upon the earth
Their gaze might rest a nostalgic burst
A lament be heard through all the cosmos
For the dying planet with fallen foes

    Seems like they are painting a picture of after basically all humanity kills itself with its own creations and that's when small little fairys emerge from their hiding place, in which they have been since the middle ages. They come out to see dead beings all over and, to them, huge toys that make "nuclear" noise. They trade things like eyeballs and body parts for currency. Yeah, that's my picture of it.

    Yes I agree with all of the above. I see the "fairies" as the rudimentary elements of the earth before humans came into existence and abused their natural properties to make it more comfortably inhabitable for ourselves and our selfishness thinking we know best. In the end it kills us and we all perish. The entire song from start to finish is each one of us watching the start of the elements shaping into what will eventually become us humans to where we are towards the end of our short lives. Now that we are gone the elements try to return to their natural state but we have done irreversible damage. Mother Nature never fought back because she was never made to. She never had to before us humans abused her love. We are sent to the stars from which we had (forgotten) we came from only to watch the world die as we start to remember how it was before, during, and at the bitter end of our inhabitant (and murder) of Mother earth. God, the author of these lyrics is pure genius. Each sentence is just a metaphor for human emotion, corruption, and the beauty in our basic structures that we never saw nor appreciated.

    A baby was born and the mother died afterwards. Her headstone is where fairies gathered to dance, and then she returns to the earth. Her music makes them dance, her pain makes no arguments, then she (the earth) dies after humans destroy the earth along with themselves. Then angels come and rebuild the place, recreating us, just to start all over again. They make us remember what we have done to her, her death was heard through the universe of the 'dying planet with fallen foes' as we have all tried to destroy her only to succeed.

    To me this means, death is a sad thing but so beautiful. Death we all weep but its life. Life is beautiful yet we complain. While things around us dance in the joy of what life is. Earth is beautiful yet we treat it like trash. Its slowly dying in the time we live on her. And no one seems to care. Yet when it come to hunaity every one cares.
