a dead fish gains the power of observation
speaks the fish
something's fishy about this dish
why am i so still in dill?
can't stir a gill
or tilt my head
it must be that i am dead

    General CommentAgreed, although the Books always tend to blow my mind. This song in particular kills me because if I am in a terribly dark mood this song transforms into a metaphore for my life, and if I am in a good mood I can just laugh at it. Love, love, love the Books

    General Commentthis is as close to perfect as song lyrics can get. to listen to it you feel like you are gaining insight along with the character. there is something about this, the timeless sort of mythology about it, with the hint of dark humour, that makes it so amazing.
