lyrics

General, the army needs you to come around, to pick up and re-arrange your mind....your mind.
You're sideways taking a vow as you lie with her in your bed. The seahorse floats up ahead, and barbed wire circles the bed.

And the general sings! ahh oh ooo

Merge into me, we're fish out of land and our gills don't take oxygen.
Take in the salt, and take all of me, with this joy we'll populate the sea.

Regrettably sir, (impossibly sir) we must inform you (we can't describe you) that the price on your head (our records show) has doubled since you betrayed mankind (that your body has redefined it's shape)...Your body has redefined it's shape!

Your eyeballs look out of place, since you wiped that man off your face. Your transactions have all been erased.

"We can't find you anymore...we can't even see you anymore"

And the general sings: Ahh oh ooo
Merge into me, we're fish out of land,
And our gills don't take oxygen,
Take in the salt, and take all of me,
With this joy we'll populate the sea.

And the choral fish sing:
"Welcome friends, you will be safe here, far from land,
We will protect you. Welcome friends"

The jellyfish won't leave you. They're never gonna go.
The choral fish won't leave you. The angel fish will guide you.

Welcome friends, we will protect you.
Far from land, you will be safe here. Welcome friends.

I'm twirling in a little school-fish train. Hydrothermal ships of the deep guide us on our way towards a rainbow coloured dream.

Follow the sea of you and me to build the perfect family.

Nothing to drown our high, follow the sea of you and me to build the perfect family. Oh

"Their ability to beautifully mesh sounds from the past and present in a span of 9 tracks establishes them as one of today's most exciting upcoming post-punk/ dance-rock acts". -Earmilk
