(psychedelic fish.)

one fish
two fish
we’re so damn
selfish
let’s try
selfless
i’m sick of
reckless
that’s just
left us
begging
for change

one fish
two fish
we seem
clueless
to the
way this
could be
flawless
let’s applaud
the strange

one fish
two fish
on your
necklace
is a
priceless
locket
with this
picture
of us
inside

what we could be
where we could go
what we have been
before we lost sight
let’s bring it back
right now
right here
tonight

don’t tell me you’re broke
i won’t tell you i’m ugly
demons aren’t afraid of priests
but they can never break through
prayers shared on holy lips
let’s kiss
we’ll feel god at least

throw your wallet in the wind
fold your insecurity up
like a sheet of paper
eight times over and flick it
into the cosmos
forever floating endlessly
far out of reach from your hungry eyes

one fish
two fish
homeless
toothless
careless
bruiseless
hands that
scoop this
dirt beneath
our feet

one fish
two fish
we just
blew this
but let’s not
blow this
new day
swim through
fish bowls
aimless
break the
glass and
make your way through the air
like the psychedelic fish you are
