alice and sarah were by the shore
sharing secrets of gods and their lore
when dagon came
to take them away
and carry them to separate corners of the earth
but alice and sarah knew
just where to swim
to find eachother again
for they've shared this same dream since the day
that they shared the same bed
so they know
just where to go
was three in the morning
towards them he was swimming
carrying seven other women with him
when alice painted
her pale skin
with the glowing green
life from the ocean
alice believes that the bed
must be haunted
but sarah is not convinced
she is far less superstitious
her blood flows
doubtful and viscous
dagon bit off the heads of the women
alice and sarah
swam far away from him
alice and sarah knew all of the oceans
better than they knew eachother's tongues
he swam after them he swam
through 7 seas through these he did
they tricked him into a boiling spring
his skin and scales were boiled to nothing
alice believes that the bed
must be haunted
but sarah is not convinced
she is far less superstitious
her blood flows doubtful and viscous

    My InterpretationDagon is a god associated with fertility. These two women "shared the same bed" and "knew each other's tongues", so we can assume that they are in a homosexual relationship with one another and the expectations or desires of traditional family life are keeping them apart (Dagon).

    "Alice believes that the bed must be haunted".... Alice does not think their problems have to do with their homosexuality. Perhaps she is very comfortable with it and is not as affected by messages from others. Alice is also the one who "painted her pale skin with the glowing green life from the ocean". She was fearless of Dagon.

    However, Sarah, "not convinced" and "less superstitious" may be troubled to some degree by her relationship and may be the reason that the two girls keep getting distant. She is faced with some dilemmas regarding her familial urges in addition to her womanhood or femininity, "her blood flows doubtful and viscous". Even after the defeat Dagon ("trick him into a boiling spring"), they are not at peace. Perhaps they missed their chances to have children and regret doing so despite the fact that they spent so much energy pushing it away.
