Look at this big eyed fish swimmin' in the sea
how he dreamed to be a birdie swoopin' dive through the breeze
so one day he caught this big ole' wave up on to the beach
and now the fish is dead you see
cause fish should know stay down in th sea.

(chorus)
But oh God
under the weight of life
things seem much brighter on the other side

See this man who decided not to breathe
he turned red then blue then purple
yes colorful indeed
and no matter how his friends begged and pleaded he would not concead
now the man is dead you see
cause every man should know you got to breathe

(Chorus 2x)

Random noises and words.

You see this monkey sittin' up in his tree
until one day he decided to climb down and run off to the city
but look at him now
tired and drunk the monkey's living in the street
as good as dead you see
cause every monkey should know, stay up inyour fuckin' tree

(Chorus 2x)
