I was going fishing, honey
In the sky, in the lake
I said I had no where to go

Line by Line Meaning

I was going fishing, honey
I was searching for something, my love

In the sky, in the lake
I searched high and low, in every possible place

I said I had no where to go
I expressed my feeling of being lost and directionless

But you put your finger on my nose
But you made me realize that I have a purpose and a goal

You put your finger on my nose
You gave me a sense of direction and guided me towards it

I'm just a puppet on a string
I feel controlled and manipulated by external forces

You're the one pulling everything
You have the power and influence over my actions and decisions

I'm just a puppet in your game
I am subject to your will and desires

And you can make me do anything
And you have complete control over me

Another settlement needs your help

I usually don’t listen to revival bands, as they usually fail to capture the genre’s charm, but these guys pretty much nailed it.

The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out

The itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again
