Opening Ceremony

For those who missed it, here and here and here and here and here are photos of the 2004 Olympics opening ceremony in Greece.



Bjork singing “Oceania” at the opening ceremony

“Oceania”

One breath away from mother Ocean?a

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

UPDATE: Even more about the song and her dress from Opacodex.com
