You always said, "You were the compassionate one"
But now you're laughing at the sun
With all your high class friends, you think you've got it made
The only thing you made was that tanned look on your face

With all your cigarettes and fancy cars
You ain't a clue who or what you are

You're dreaming your life away
Fish out of water
Go swim in the tide today
Fish out of water

We used to sit and talk about primal scream
To exorsice our past was our adolescent dream
But now it's sink or swim since your memory fails
Now in Neptune's kitchen you will be food for killer whales

And on the crucifix his mother made
Hangs one more martyr to the hit parade

You're dreaming your life away
Fish out of water
Go swim in the tide today
Fish out of water

You're dreaming your life away
Fish out of water
Go swim in the tide today
Fish out of water

You're dreaming your life away
Fish out of water
You're dreaming your life away
You're dreaming your life away
Fish out of water

ALAN GRIFFITHS, ROLAND ORZABAL
