Oceania Lyrics

Artist: Bjork
Album: Medulla

also performed on the opening ceremony of Athens 2004 Olympic Games

One breath away from mother Oceana
Your nimble feet make prints in my sands
You have done good for yourselves
Since you left my wet embrace
And crawled ashore
Every boy, is a snake is a lily
Every pearl is a lynx, is a girl
Sweet like harmony made into flesh
You dance by my side
Children sublime
You show me continents
I see islands
You count the centuries
I blink my eyes
Hawks and sparrows race in my waters
Stingrays are floating
Across the sky
Little ones, my sons and my daughters
Your sweat is salty
I am why
I am why
I am why
Your sweat is salty
I am why
I am why
I am why

not exactly, she talks about the sea, how life started in the seas and how it evolved to ground form of life, and that every living creature comes from it.
"your sweat is salty" is because we come from the sea!!
Amazing!!!
