"Sjá þessa litlu eyju / þessa stóru einmana eyju / þar sem enginn hleypur / berfættur / um svarta sanda á haustin / sjá þessa þrjósku voga / og vogu∂u þorp / þar sem fólki∂ vakir / bátarnir farast / og kunnuglega masturshúna rekur á land."
"when I started preparing for Homogenic, it was very obviously supposed to be a love album to Iceland nature. I’d learned enough about studios and beats to make modern Icelandic pop music. It isn’t Icelandic music trying to be English or American. I was doing a lot of experimenting with beats trying to make them sound volcanic. With this song, I really had a sort of National Anthem in mind. Not the National Anthem but certain classic Icelandic songs - very romantic, very proud. All the puffin stories are rubbish, though.
