"Old Man + The Sea" as written by and Chad Vangaalen....
You made a promise to yourself you'd find her and bring her back for the world to see. She is shimmering, she is beautiful. You thought catching her would set you free.

She was such a long way down...

With the line pulled tight, cuttin' through your hands you were up all night. Was it hallucination, or did your eyes see right?

You made a promise to yourself you'd find her and bring her back for the world to see. She is shimmering, she is beautiful. You thought catching her would set you free.

She was such a long way down...

    Pretty much the narrative of his novella. Fits with the whole death motif of the album.

    General CommentThis song's aboot a fisherman who came in counter with a Mermaid at sea. He wanted to bring her back to civilization and show off her beauty, and that having her in his possession would free him from his sadness. It goes back and tells of how he caught her on his fishing line, and tried to catch her, but then she was gone. He thinks to himself if it was a just hallucination. And he promised himself he'd go back and try to find her.

    I LOVE THIS SONG OMGOMGOMGOMG
