Eyedea & Abilities - Birth of a Fish lyrics

ha ha... ha ha... ha ha… it is kind of a funny story He lives in a four by two gla** box It reminds me of my head I wish my floor would have rocks, But it's covered with puddles instead If I could be him, life would be great I could erase this permanent frown I wouldn't even be held down by my own weight I woke up walked to the tank to hear his thoughts on yesterday How was it? I asked And after a tap on the gla** He looked my way, then gave me this depressed expression Impressed, it's best just to say Besides the tides and the grey skies, it was okay And I said Hey mister fish you get all that you wish You've got, nothin' to complain about while hangin' out in this abyss Well he replied, While existence is bliss, there's so much that you miss Besides get off the trip, happiness is just a myth. I said Livin' in water is extremely more peaceful than Life confined to a mind, blinded by the evil And forced to see through these two peep holes It seems I've redeemed freedom, not being limited by walls but That only means I qualify as ground for the sky when it falls That only means I qualify as ground for the sky when it falls That only means I qualify as ground for the sky when it falls That only means I qualify as ground for the sky when it falls But Mr. Fish just laughed as I went on and on and on So I interrupted his chuckle, puttin' up a middle finger And he boldly told me it's too bad I'm such a thinker So arrogantly I asked, How could someone think too much? He added that insanity lingers and thoughts brought me to the brink of such He said, You live inside a head that reminds me of my gla** box And everyone's the same; all brains are contained by your reality framed And chained, to with the rain, its trained hard not to change And once you see what I've explained you hit the jackpot And at that very moment it was like my eyes really opened The air that previously surrounded me was now an ocean Still totally invisible except for minor pieces of debris Then Mr. Fish pushed up to the gla** and he looked just like me My whole world spun around, I didn't understand But I realized I was no longer a man So I thought about what he said And asked him what was going on And he said, you didn't know it but you where the fish all along He said, congratulations, you did it, you broke free You're just a fish like the rest of humanity Now it took me a long time to get adjusted to this tank But now I know what I am, and so to that man I give thanks I've always lived inside this gla** box that reminds him of his head It just goes to show ya that your mind is your own monster Reality's what you make it, if you take it away You're just a fish, like me, swimming in the powdered water
