Sugarcubes – Birthday lyrics

Bjork

She lives in this house over there
Has her world outside it
Scrapples in the earth with her fingers and her mouth
She's five years old

Thread worms on a string
Keeps spiders in her pocket
Collects fly wings in a jar
Scrubs horse flies
And pinches them on a line
Ohhh...

She has one friend, he lives next door
They're listenening to the weather
He knows how many freckles she's got
She scratches his beard

She's painting huge books
And glues them together
They saw a big raven
It glided down the sky
She touched it
Ohh...

Today is a birthday
They're smoking cigars
He's got a chain of flowers
And sows a bird in her knickers
Ohhh...

They're smoking cigars
They lie in the bathtub
A chain of... Flowers

    Its about a molestation. Sorry to be so blunt but, its about a 5 year old little girl who has an inappropriate relationship with an man who lives next door. "he knows how many freckles she's got , she scratches his beard. ". "he's got a chain of flowers, sows a bird in her knickers. ". "they lie in the bathtub. " she talks about them seeing a big raven and she says, "they saw a big raven, it glided down the sky, she touched it. " she thinks its just another game. A raven glided down, she touched it.
    She touched it. Raven (symbolism).
