see this big eyed fish
swimming in the sea
oh how he dreams to be a bird
swoop and diving through the breeze
so one day caught a big old wave
up onto the beach
now the fish is dead you see
cause every fish should know stay in the sea

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

look at this man who decided not to breathe
turned red then blue then purple
ah this man was colorful indeed
no matter how his friends begged and pleaded
the man he would not concede
and now he's 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 much brighter on the other side

no way
no way
no way oh

look at this monkey sitting up in his tree
til one day decided to climb down
and run off to the city
but look at the monkey now
tired drunk and sleeping in the streets
as good as dead you see
cause every 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 so much brighter on the other side

no way
no way
no way
no way oh
Big Eyed Fish
main lyrics
[Busted Stuff version]

Look at this big-eyed fish swimming in the sea oh
How it dreams to be a bird swoop and diving through the breeze
So one day caught a big old wave up on to 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 and 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
No way, no way
No way out of here
You see the little monkey sitting up in his monkey tree
One day decided to climb down and run off to the city
But look at him now lost and tired living in the street
As good as dead you see what a monkey does stay up in your tree
Rain in my dreams
Fall away

[2000 Studio Session version]

Story of a man who decided not to breathe
Turned red, purple, and blue, colorful indeed
No matter how his friends begged, well, he would not concede
And now he's dead, 'cause everybody know you've got to breathe

But, oh God, under the weight of life
Things seem brighter on the other side
Lighter on the other side

another one, see this monkey, sittin' in his tree
One day decided to climb down and ran off to the city
Look at him now, tired, and drunk, and living in the street
As good as dead, you see, a monkey should know "stay up your 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 much lighter on the other side

No way, no way, no way out

another one, a big eyed fish, swimmin' in the sea
And how he dreamed, he wants to be a bird, swooping diving through the breeze
One day, he caught big blue wave up on to the beach
Now he's dead, you see, a fish's dreams should stay in the sea

well God, under the weight of life
Things seem brighter on the other side
But, oh God, under the weight of life
Things seem brighter on the other side

No way, no way, no way out
No way out...
