"Fish Out Of Water" as written by and Matthew Thomas/edney Meschery....
Picture this, another Monday morning, you go to work
But you don't know why your going,
Everyday it's just the same, it's stupid and boring and it feels like you're going insane.

Right now you don't understand it
Slow down there's no reason to panic because one day your still gonna make it,
But ya can't get that far when your a fish outta water my friend

Marco polo don't you know that's how the game goes,
Marco polo you're a fish outta water and I bet you didn't know

Everyday life's getting harder and you're living like a fish outta water
You can't breath or you, don't bother
That's what its like when your a fish outta water

You wake up one day look around and realize your losing time
The tide has got you and you watch as your life starts to divide
Thought you'd go with the flow and the next thing you know feels like your drowning
Take a step back, check yourself, make sure you don't fuck it up, and then you do it again

Right now you don't understand it
Slow down there's no reason to panic because one day your still gonna make it,
But ya can't get that far when your a fish outta water my friend

Marco polo don't you know that's how the game goes,
Marco polo you're a fish outta water and I bet you didn't know

Everyday life's getting harder and you're living like a fish outta water
You can't breath or you, don't bother
That's what its like when your a fish outta water

Now I'm underwater so deep that I'm blind feeling around in hopes
That I'd find, inspiration
Or something that would touch me
Grounded so deep my feet can't even move me.
Time runnin' in the rat race all day
I'm thinking whose life is it anyway
Feelin' worthless can't find the surface
Swimmin' in my mind just to find the purpose
And the tides all low and I'm all exposed
Eyes froze makes me wonder bout this path I chose
Nobody told you when to run, Bang Bang
You missed the starting gun

Everyday life's getting harder and you're living like a fish outta water
You can't breath or you, don't bother
That's what its like when your a fish outta water

Everyday life's getting harder and you're living like a fish outta water
You can't breath or you, don't bother
That's what its like when your a fish outta water

    General CommentI think the line you're looking for is "swimin in my mind just to find a purpose" BTW I love this song and i think its pretty obvious what it means, just to not get too tied up with your job and things you do't like and live your life to the max.

    General Commenti actually used this song as additional material for my HSC english exam and made a comparison with this poem called "the road not taken"...pretty much what i understood was the idea that life is unpredictable and that choices need to be made, whether you like it or not. its an inner journey (CRINGE) through the mind which is being represented by a physical journey in the song. the understanding that is reached is an acceptance that you don't always have control over what is happening. sounds pretty shitty actually sorry, i've thrown out all my notes and this is all i can think of at the moment...
