about

My sister wrote the lyrics.
I wrote the melody.

lyrics

We’re freshwater fish swimming
Pet fish circling under aquarium light
The blue translucent marbles
See them catching the translucent blue light

Looking through the glass to the room outside
A couch and a TV in your line of sight
I wonder what you think when you look outside
Knowing that’s a world you can’t survive

Nibbling flakes made of nothing
Tastes like paper and stale tobacco smoke
Circling in filtered water
What would we do if the water filter broke?

Looking through the glass to the room outside
A couch and a TV in your line of sight
I wonder what you think when you look outside
Knowing that’s a world you can’t survive

We’re a pair of fish swimming
We’ve been bred to exist in a human home
In the night with the lights out
Our fish tank is a haven all its own

Looking through the glass to the room outside
A couch and a TV in your line of sight
I wonder what you think when you look outside
Knowing that’s a world you can’t survive
