"Fish Below The Ice" as written by David Allen, Martyn Barker, Carl Marsh and Barry William Andrews....
Is there a fire in the sky
Is there a moon up there
Is anything alive now
This darkness is what I hear
This is a breathless silence
A moment out of time
I see your face in the shadows
The tell-tale signs are in your eyes

More than I can hold in my hand
Running through the gaps like water
Aching with a passion inside
Deep as the river
All desire
The ashes and the fire
Turning this night inside
And the light from you

Is there a flame in the dark
Is there a bright heart star
These creatures look the same now
We freeze wherever we are
We wake alone in the blackness
We sleep whenever we fall
One dream all around us
This big hush infects us all

Holding up an animal fear
Soaking up the waves underwater
Tuned to music no-one can hear
Forever in this half-light
All desire
The ashes and the fire
Turning this night inside
And the light from you

All desire
The ashes and the fire
Turning this night inside
And the light from you

More than I can hold in my hand
Running through the gaps like water
Aching with a passion inside
Deep as the river
All desire
The ashes and the fire
Turning this night inside
And the light from you

All desire
The ashes and the fire
Turning this night inside
Turning this night inside
Turning this night inside
And the light from you

    My InterpretationSeems like sometimes the lyrics you input are not the ones loaded onto the page. Don't know why but editing does not seem to help so...

    Well, the mouth is open and a noise comes out
    Ain't no reason for it, just a need to shout
    It's malnutrition, we could fall apart
    It's never delicate, just something from the iron age

    We shake it up and we break it down
    The sound of a satellite saying, "Get me down"
    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    Hear the voice of America in your home town


    Well, the film is running till the film runs out
    There's no point of focus, it zooms in and out
    It's information and it leaves no mark
    It's just as permanent as painting in the iron age

    I'm plugged in and loaded
    Don't forget to phone in
    The self-destruct is holding
    I'm counting, I'm counting, but only to three

    We get it right sometimes
    We shine a light sometimes
    We see the fish below the ice sometimes
    Stand up and fight sometimes
    We get the fright sometimes
    How will we ever pay the price this time?

    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    The sound of a satellite saying, "Get me down"
    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    It's east European, west European
    It's moving so fast it goes all the way round


    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    (Yeah, he's on a mission from god)
    (But he don't know whose and he don't know why)
    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    (Says I'm not a light in the darkness)
    (More like a shadow on the lungs)
    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    (I'm balanced here on the edge of anger)
    (I'm standing here on an empty page)
    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    (Sooner or later they'll start receiving)
    (I've been standing here for days)

    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    Hear the voice of America in your home town
    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    It's east European, west European
    It's moving so fast it goes all the way round

    We get it right sometimes
    We shine a light sometimes
    We see the fish below the ice sometimes
    Stand up and fight sometimes
    We get the fright sometimes
    How will we ever pay the price this time?

    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    The sound of a satellite saying, "Get me down"
    Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
    It's east European, west European
    It's moving so fast it goes all the way round

    We get it right sometimes
    We shine a light sometimes
    We see the fish below the ice sometimes
    Stand up and fight sometimes
    We get the fright sometimes
    How will we ever pay the price this time?

    We get it right sometimes
    We shine a light sometimes
    We see the fish below the ice sometimes
    Stand up and fight sometimes
    We get the fright sometimes
    How will we ever pay the price this time?

    We get it right sometimes
    We shine a light sometimes
    We see the fish below the ice sometimes
    Stand up and fight sometimes
    We get the fright sometimes
    How will we ever pay the price this time?
