Since youtube allows 15 minutes now i thought i'd upload the full 11 minutes.
This is from the album Tomorrow in a year. this song is by The Knife in collaboration with Mt. Sims. Its from an opera about Charles Darwin.

Lyrics:
Northern forms existed in their own homes
Thousand yellow cocoons
Under over through
A few southern vegetable forms
On the mountains of Borneo
Under over through
Donkey peacock goose
In the mouth of the river
A strange scene it is
Everything in flames
The sky with lightning
And the water, luminous
A strange scene it is
Under over through

Six weeks old
Henrietta smiled for the first time
Tail habits proof
Instinct that moves
Emma saw him smile
Not only with lips
But eyes
Erasmus grab a spoon
Europe hides wool
Mr. Peacock and Captain Beaufort
Endemic alpine grooves
Bread-fruit cinnamon tunes
Tonight it's blowing
Thick bodies of spray whirled across the bay
Whatever might have been
The cause of the retreat

Columbia livia
Great ages through
Course of days
Tumblers, Jacobins
Beak shapes, skeletal traits
Runts and Carriers
Wooden hexagonal cage
Pouters and Fantails
Tail feathers at what age?
(The delight of once again being home)
Grey and white spotted
(The delight of once again being home)
Markings in making
(The delight of once again being home)
My great amusement
Behind Land house a gentle cooing
Behind Land house the offspring's moving
Behind Land house a gentle cooing

The delight of once again being home
The delight of once again being home
The delight of once again being home
The delight of once again being home
The delight of once again being home
The delight of once again being home
