lyrics

Big fish in the little sea
I know you never noticed me
but left my tributary behind
with my heart to fortune find

Now I'm older I can see
happiness abandon me
I can't love but I can weld
a fickle heart can little tell

I told my mother I would write
but I'd ink the blood and not the fight
and tarried to my circumstance
I never stood a fighting chance

Big fish in the little Sea
won't you leave some out for me?
My hour's long as long as yours
but you are rich and I am poor

I'm slaking on the Lethe now
just one last time beneath the bow
I will sink and you will swim
I will lose and you will win

some get silver some get gold
some are lucky getting old
you get richer I'll get grief
yet you're the king and i'm the thief

Big fish i did what you said
but still i can't afford the bread
you left me in the open sea
my hunger it surrounded me


Big fish I'm not doing well
I can see the gates of hell
won't you help me back upstream
where air was good, and water clean

I can't be held responsible
for what you say and do
but if you pass that buck along the line
I'm happy for a dollar or two

Big fish am i going to die?
This salts too much for such a fry
turn your back and I'll rope my head
Ixtab take me to my bed
