Porcupine Tree – Small Fish lyrics
[Lyrics - Alan Duffy / Music - Steven Wilson]

The first thing that I saw as,
The fisherman smiled at me
Were empty people dressed in grey,
Floating out to sea
The rain lashed down in darkness
A lizard blinked an eye
And time stopped in the silence
The small fish gave a cry

The next thing that I saw as,
Things were fading fast
Were dreams of children's laughter,
Smouldering to dust
The rain lashed down in darkness
A lizard blinked an eye
And time stopped in the silence
The small fish gave a cry

The last thing that I saw as, my life passed by
Were fields of empty people, laying down to die
The rain lashed down in darkness
A lizard blinked an eye
And time stopped in the silence
To watch the burning sky.
