New Björk – “Earth Intruders”

Those bits of cracked out audio that Gerome Voltaire was leaking crop up in the first single from Volta, streaming in this YouTube clip set to the true Volta cover (björk.com webmaster MWC clarified in the comments that the last iteration was just “a shot from a promotional shoot by Inez & Vinoodh”). Beat by Timbaland, bonus percussion from Konono N°1. And yes, she’s saying “We are the Earth intruders / We are the sharp shooters.” No idea what she’s talking about, but you just know it’s deep.

More confusing lyrics after the jump!

“Earth Intruders”
We are the earth intruders
We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches

Turmoil
Carnage

Here come the earth intruders
We are the paratroopers
The beat of sharpshooters
Comes straight from voodoo

With our feet thumbing
With our feet marching
Grinding the skeptics into the soil

Shower of goodness coming to end the doubt
Pouring over
Shower of goodness coming to end

We are the earth intruders
We are the sharpshooters
Flock of parachuters
Necessary voodoo

I have guided my bones through some voltage
And love them still
And love them too

Metallic
Carnage
Furiousity
Feel the speed

We are the earth intruders
We are the sharpshooters
Flock of parachuters
Necessary voodoo

There is turmoil out there
Carnage
Rambling
What is to do but dig
Dig bones out of earth

Mud graves

Timber
Morbid trenches

Here come the earth intruders
There?ll be no resistance
We are the cannoneerers
Necessary voodoo

And the beast with many heads and arms rolling
Steamroller

We are the earth intruders
We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches

Forgive this tribe

We are the earth intruders
We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches

We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches

We are the earth intruders

We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches
Marching

We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches
Marching
March
March
March
We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches
Marching voodoo
