I am a Fish

From the album Trying Too Hard, released February 2004

These lyrics were written several years back, and I had a basic melody in my head, but I finally put the song together and made it "official". The music was programmed in MadTracker and the awesome bubble sounds at the end were made by several tracks of me flicking my fingers on my lips.


I am a fish
This is the pond I live in
I breathe with my gills
And swim with my fins.

This is my pond
But I'm sick of mud.
I'm bored with the weeds,
With the rocks and the sludge.

I am a fish
And this is my wish:
I want to leave my home
And travel into the unknown.
