So you live in the bottom of the sea,
And you kill all that come near you
But you are very lonely, because all the other fish
Fear you
And you crave companionship and someone to call your own;
Because for the whole of your life
You've been living alone.

On a black day in black month
At the black bottom of the sea,
Your mother gave birth to you and died
'Cause you can't have two killers living
In the same pad
And when your mother knew that her time had come
She was really rather glad.

Death in the sea, death in the sea,
Somebody please come and help me,
Come and help me
Fishes can't fly, fishes can't fly,
Fishes can't and neither can I, neither can I

Now I'm really rather like you,
For I've killed all the love I ever had
By not doing all I ought to and by leaving
My mind coming bad.
And I too am a killer,
For emotion runs as deep as flesh
And I too am so lonely, and I wish that I could forget
We need love,
We need love,
We need love

Mike Reiss

One of the greatest prog rock songs. Not fair to compare this to most regular rock because it would blow most away.


Prog / rock / whatever...It's great. Period.
