Why you always kickin' up the sand,
Always kickin' up the sand
God man you're angry and it makes my eyes hurt.
Why you always kickin' up the sand,
Kickin' up the sand,
You block your sister so the sunbeams miss her.

Why you always raggin' on the man,
Always raggin' on the man
It just makes you look like a sad-sack actor
Why you always raggin' on the man,
Raggin' on Some system you think killed him but you're so so backward

Why you gotta be like that?
You're never gonna bring him back

Big fish, little fish,
Fixin' in the dark
If I had one wish, just a wish,
Throw me in the water, 'cos I wanna be a bottomfeeder

Why you always hatin' on the cabs,
Always hatin' on the cabs,
Just means the cabs are coming that less faster.
Why you always hatin' on the cabs,
You shake your fist at God you ain't even noticing that they're all passin'

Why you gotta bitch about the band,
Bitch about the band,
You know he loved 'em and they kept him laughin'.
Why you gotta bitch about the band,
Bitch about the band,
You ain't even listening and man they're not askin'

Why you gotta be like that?
You're never gonna bring him back

Big fish, little fish,
Shootin' in the dark
If I had one wish, just a wish,
Throw me in the water, 'cos I wanna be a bottomfeeder
Wanna be a bottomfeeder

Why you always dyin' in the bath,
Always dyin' in the bath
Just makes me nervous that the lizard king kissed you.
Why you always dyin' in the bath
Dyin' in the bath
It's awful quiet and it makes me miss you

Why you gotta be like that?
You're never gonna bring him back

Big fish, little fish
Dying in the dark
If I had one wish, just a wish
Throw me in the water

'Cos the cabs ain't comin'
Yeah the sun's not shinin'
Yeah the bath keeps runnin'
Yeah it keeps on rainin'
But the band keeps playing
Yeah the band keeps playing
Yeah the band keeps playing
Yeah the band keeps playin'
