Turn out the sky, cast low the lights
Lest humans see a glow in the waters at night
You're living your life in that pearl
Swimming in darkness that no light can
Daylight's no prettier, the sun not sweeter
Don't be deceived by the gleaming gold glitter
Sunlight is finer than magic in lamps
Better wind's bite than the kiss of eel
Water is gentler on our cold, fishy scales
Than the nets of the humans that killed the whales
But humans can walk and talk on the land
While you flop and whine in sharp, white
Don't be persuaded by a lovely human's kiss
To leave the water and forget they'll eat you, fish
Better the human than the brother you
Who forgets you're his kin and sups on
When there's blood in the water, remember my words
They'll catch you with hooks and pierce you with swords
Destroying the beauty of scales mixed
Is the last thing we want from our
Don't listen to them in their dry, dusty abodes
They'd show you anything to purchase your soul
Don't listen to them in their liquid hell
They'd say anything to contain your soul
Stop telling me
everything I should do and believe!
All you want is
to seduce and deceive!
decided the things I'm going to do!
I'll reach for
the skies where the birds are free and true!
