There are moments in a lifetime that feel frozen
When you feel as helpless as a whale crashed on the beach
And it's a skeleton you've feared since 1990
But you learned to learn, so now you've gotta learn to teach
'Cause when you realize that your mom looks like your sister
And your uncle like your cousin with a mustache
You've gotta take some time to stop and wonder
Do you look like your dad?
So crashed there on the sand you started singing
A song whose melody you lost
While I was swimming in the sea so warm, I drifted off
The same waters that once rose up in a fury
Then carried me so gently back to the shore
The song you sang was of the way the tide is blind
I said I couldn't agree more
The earth is spinning on its axis
Sometimes helplessness attacks us
And with walls against our backs
Here comes the storm
But to spin means repetition
Grit your teeth and toss the fish into
The well, here comes your wish to be reborn
You'll be born as a crustacean
With the same heart and situation
Always clawing at elation like you are
But new body, new perspective
And since you all are still connected
All the bonds that you've erected will hold strong
There are moments when your conscience gets confused
Pacing up and down an empty corridor
But that's the reason that you have a gut
For when you can't think anymore
