small fish big pond

from Headlamp by Burnt



who knows why the bubbles rise
why the kelp is green
who of you can tell me why
they all swim better than me
the jellys glow
octopus has ink
my fins are so damn short
i think i'm gonna sink

yesterday the coral cut me
now my tail is grey
and then i got so hungry
i almost took the bait
my brother ate the hook
maybe its not so bad
they hauled him up the sky on high
now he gets to fry
i'm so small
sure to get tossed back
left bleeding from the mouth
to slowly fade to black

big fish small pond
lost among the deep
bound to be drowned
out here on the edge
amongst the reeds
