Lyrics

I’m trying to leave my ocean home,
I’m trying to leave my ocean,
Though I don’t know nothing of the swamp,
And I could be a limbless star,
Pushing at the sac all ready to delight the lucid shoal

And you don’t look impressed,
I could be the dolphin of your dreams!
Willing wings to my chest,
One day I’ll grow up and show you

Harpoons and monsoons won’t keep me at bay,
There’s so much yet to happen,
My limbs,
Now my fins,
Now a film on my lips,
And why you never call back?
I’m older,
I’m colder,
I’m not coming good,
A cherub in the ashtray

Wriggling back to the source,
And thrashing up the waterfalls for what?
Somewhere there is a place,
And I could be the whale that takes you all

But maybe I’m a lioness,
And when I reach the shore I’ll tear apart hyenas with no thought,
Now organs in a glassy globe,
And cloudy with potential,
Muscle mass and vertebrae begin

Trying to figure my place, and feverish with all my dreams awake,
They don’t notice me now,
But I could be the whale that takes them all!

Them all!

Try this, and try this, and try this again,
I’m never gonna make it,
Delete me, repeat me let’s try this again
A tiny little fish egg is
Homeless and boneless and drifting along,
Just jelly in the blackness

And inching up to the pole,
Only to be lost among the white,
Somewhere there is a place,
And I could be a Pterodactyl God
I’m trying to leave my ocean home.
