Below are the lyrics of Bjork's song called "Hyper-ballad."
How should I interpret them?
We live in a mountain
Right at the top
There's a beautiful view
From the top of the mountain
Every morning I walk towards the edge
And throw little things off
Car-parts, bottles, and cutlery
Or whatever I find lying around

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you
It's real early morning
No-one is awake
I'm back at my cliff
Still throwing things off
I listen to the sounds they make
On their way down
I follow with my eyes 'til they crash
Imagine what my body would sound like
Slamming against those rocks

When it lands
Will me eyes
Be closed or open?

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you
