look at this big eyed fish
swimming in the sea
oh oh longs to be a bird
swooping and diving through the breeze
so one day the fish caught this big old wave
up onto the beach
now the fish is dead you see
cause the fish should know to stay down in the sea

but oh god under the weight of life
things seem brighter on the other side

so this man who decided not to breath
oh turned red then blue then purple
so colorful indeed
no matter how his friends
oh they all did beg and they did plead
the man is dead you see
cause every man should know you got to breathe

but oh god under the weight of life
things seem brighter on the other side
oh god but under the weight of life
things seem so much brighter on the other side

no way
no way
no way out of here

now with this monkey sitting up in his tree
til one day when he decided to climb down
and run off to the city
well look at him now
he's drunk and tired sleeping in the streets
as good as dead you see
cause a monkey should know
stay up in your fucking tree

but oh god under the weight of life
things seem brighter on the other side
oh god but under the weight of life
things seem brighter on the other side

no way
no way
no way out of here
Big Eyed Fish
main lyrics
Look at this big-eyed fish swimming in the sea
oh, how he dreams to be a bird, swooping, diving through the breeze
so one day, caught a big old wave up onto the beach
now he's dead, you see—beneath the sea is where a fish should be

But oh, god, under the weight of life
things seem brighter on the other side

You see this crazy man decided not to breathe
he turned red, then blue, purple, colorful indeed
no matter how his friends begged and pleaded, the man would not concede
and now he's dead, you see—the silly man should know you got to breathe

But oh, god, under the weight of life
things seem brighter on the other side
oh, god, but under the weight of life
things seem so much better on the other side

No way, no way, no way out of here

See the little monkey sitting up in his monkey tree
one day decided to climb down, run off to the city
but look at him now, lost and tired, living in the street
as good as dead you see
do what a monkey does, stay up your tree

But oh God, under the weight of life
things seem brighter on the other side
oh God, under the weight of life
things seem so much better on the other side

No way, no way, no way, no way out of here

Rain on my love, rain in my dreams, my love, dream, oh, rain out
oh god, under the weight of life
things seem brighter on the other side
rain in my dreams, rain in my dreams, rain in my--
brighter on the other side
oh god, under the weight of life
rain in my dreams, rain in my
oh way, oh way, oh way, oh way
