"Waterwings (And the Other Pool Side Fashion Faux Pas)" as written by and Dallas/ingelevics Green....
You always had the blondest hair.
Chlorine stripped your skin pigment.
The cash was worth the fucking change.
At the pool from open to close.
Rake the bottom for loose change.
A job that paid for the luxury.
(The image still hurts my eyes)
But it probably lead to his divorce.
(White chlorine burns so bright)
It's probably the reason why his son hates him
(Sometimes I fear the night. When addiction became surprise)
Now your blood is so toxic
So toxic with chlorine that you only have three months left to live.

(Red stained eyes. Red stained eyes)
Was the, the change worth it?
(Red!)
Was the
(Stained!)
Divorce
(Eyes!)
Worth it?
(Red!)
Now you will
(Stained!)
Never
(Eyes!)
See your son again
(RED!)
Red!

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing... One of my favorites from the CD... the lyrics are quite obvious really.. i see it as a rich couple hires a pool boy(man)... who ends of falling for the wife.. and ends up marrying her and deserting his son.

    General CommentI always thought this song was about a drug problem that tore the family apart. Cholrine could be heroin. I maybe completely wrong.

    General CommentAnyone see the video to this song? It's awesome.

    It opens with a thirty second speech in Latin, and then just goes nuts from there. Download it if you can find it.

    General Commentyea, this song is totally amazing, even better live. this video also kicks some huge ass. all the 'dancing crews' are local bands from the area around me, Chore, Blue Skies at War, At the Mercy of Inspiration, etc.

    General Commenti dont think it actually has anything to do with a pool boy, but a father who put work over family."the cash was worth the fucking change" could mean working all those hours for money u changed your family,and its not worth it.
