"Dandelion" as written by and Marcus/sandison Sandison....
When lava pours out near the sea surface
Tremendous volcanic explosions sometimes occur
In time, sub-marine seamounts
Or islands, are formed
When lava flows underwater it behaves differently
A new contraption to capture a dandelion in one piece has been put together by the crew
The preparation for a dive is always a tense time
When lava pours out near the sea surface
Tremendous volcanic explosions sometimes occur

    General Commentthe "Dandelion" he's referring to is actually not a fish or lava formation. It's basically a group of different organisms living together in a cluster. These in specific resemble a dandelion, which is why they nicknamed them Dandelions =)

    Heres a quick clip of one from the Univ of Delaware:::

    General CommentThis is true. Added bonus, the Film that the sample is from was taken from a Public Service film made by (dun dun dun) The Film Board of Canada.

    :D:D

    General CommentI've read somewhere that the name "Dandelion" was given to the underwater species of some kind that they tried to recover, but it subsequently disintigrated due to the extreme changes in pressure as it was brought to the surface. Can anyone provide any more details?
    Cheers : )

    General CommentThe Dandelion is a fish (a very delicate fish) that had to be placed in a pressurized/sealed container in order to bring it back to the surface. (My dad heard this track and recognized the source instantly.)

    General CommentThis song still brings chills to my spine even after I've heard it over 100 times.

    "A new contraption to capture (CLACK!!!!!) a dandelion in one piece has been put together by the crew"

    The clacking noise sends a jolt of fear in me. This lucid and eerie noise can also be heard all over "Alpha and Omega", one of the most evil songs by BoC.

    General CommentA Dandelion is not a fish, or any animal. It's a name given to a type of underwater lava formation. Lava formations under water are very fragile and so...

    The whole documentary that the samples were taken from is on the topic of lava formations in or near sea water.
