"Palace Of The Brine" as written by and Charles Thompson....
In a place they say is dead
In the lake that's like an ocean
I count about a billion head
All the time, there's a motion

Palace of the brine
Palace of the brine

I saw the cloning
Of the famous family
I hear the droning
In the shrine of the sea monkey

Palace of the brine
Palace of the brine

Beneath reflections in the fountain
The starry sky in Utah mountains
They are swimming happily
Can't you see?

A life that's so sublime
Palace of the brine

    General CommentIn Utah there is a lake called Great Salt Lake, which is apparently full of brine shrimp. Last year 25,729,490 pounds of brine shrimp were harvested from the lake.

    I guess the lake is 'dead' because it's so salty, it's like an ocean because it's salty and huge.

    Of course anyone who has owned Sea Monkeys will understand that Brine Shrimp are worthy of such a great song. Black Francis seems to envy their life swimming around mindlessly...
