there are my specs
the ones I've been looking for
I threw them out the window ten years ago
and now they're on my doorstep

so you put one and one together
and there will be better weather
and you know that it's forever now that he has custody
with his son up on his shoulders they're a sight to behold
'cause the dad is twenty eight even though he looks seventeen
so you'll never guess the woes that they have known
cause they don't show
and in a couple years they've grown into a perfect family
I'm so proud my brother did so good with his kid
I just wish that I could live with the fishes I love in their anemone
but I'm a turtle it wont work I've gotta stay out in the current
with my house upon my back so I can hide inside of me
all together in the tank you always dreamed about escaping
when you finally make a break for it you deserve to be free
to be free
to be free
to be free

there are my spectacles
the one's I've been looking for
I threw them out my window ten years ago
and now they're on my doorstep
that's how it happened
the confusion at the store
the shark never knew his father
and the baby never knew his mother board

    General Comment"and you know that it's forever now that he has custody
    with his son up on his shoulders they're a sight to behold
    'cause the dad is twenty eight even though he looks seventeen"

    I believe this means that the boy who has the kid is seventeen, but because he won the custody of his kid and has taken the responsibility of caring for a child at such a young age, it makes him mature; hence: he acts like he's twenty-eight even he is seventeen years old.

    the rest of the song is about how Kimya wishes that she could settle down or be like a fish, but she's a turtle. turtles move around all the time, they never stop traveling. she's saying she can't ever stay in one place.

    "with my house upon my back so I can hide inside of me"

    I think she's saying her real home is inside her, so she can go anywhere she wants and she will always feel at home, or something to that effect.

    I don't get the intro or the ending paragraphs but its a really great song.

    Kimya is incredible with her lyrics. :]
