i feel the same as the very first day i came
and i hang my head in shame to think of how it came to this
those ancient rules they got written in the glowing pools
that my greatest granddad pulled his wretched body outta
a long time ago

only if your gills suck fern exhaust
only if you grow two hearts
pumping out red and blue through
the causeways and the avenues

some film got lifted from the back of a cargo bay,
smuggled up to penthouse A of a 13 story nest
the landlord cranked all night and projected future woes
out two west-facing windows, kept his ears to the north and south.

kept his ears to the north and south
they're guiding you back
to a glowing pool where your fish eyes work
they're guiding you back

the foundation cracked and the birds all left the nest
looking out for second best cause it's only july.
someone got crushed and her legs curled into candy canes
but she didn't feel a spot of pain she'd lost some limbs before.
a long time ago

a tenant below suffocated just a little
yes, a tenant below poured an extra glass
a tenant below cracked the spine of a feng shui guide

my supper crashed to the floor
as fish eyes dragged herself
back to the glowing pool
my greatest granddad said
i'll see you soon
back in the glowing pool

a tenant below started boiling some water
yes, a tenant below rang a sympathetic ear
a tenant below put a magnet in a pillowcase

pumping out red and blue
through the causeways and avenues

kept his ears to the north and south.
they're guiding you back
to a glowing pool where your fish eyes work
they're guiding you back
