Here comes a Pagan Poetry, from Björk.

A depiction of undulation in the current of procreation.

Björk - Pagan Poetry
Pedaling through
The dark currents
I find
An accurate copy
A blueprint
Of the pleasure
In me

[chorus]
(Swirling, black lillies, totally ripe)

A secret code carved
A secret code carved

He offers
A handshake
Crooked
Five fingers
They form a pattern
Yet to be matched

On the surface simplicity
But the darkest pit in me
It's pagan poetry
Pagan poetry

?

Morsecoding signals
They pulsate and wake me up
From my hibernating

On the surface simplicity
But the darkest pit in me
It's pagan poetry
Pagan poetry

I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him

This time
I'm gonna keep it to myself

This time
I'm gonna keep me all to myself
And he makes me want to hurt myself again

And he makes me want to hurt myself again
black lillies
black lillies

This video is a supreme beauty. It is directed by Nick Knight.

This video was ban'd in good old USA.

Part of the undulation footage in the video is based on a actual video Bjork recorded of herself and her boyfriend in copulation. The piercing footage are not Bjork, except the ear.

Note the piecing in her back. That's called corset piercing.
