about

If a fish swims in a bowl without any other fishes around to remind him that he's a fish... would that floating little entity think he's God?

This song is about an omnipotent fish that hides a whole other world inside his fish bowl treasure chest.

lyrics

In a forgotten home, through the broken glass
On a dusty shelf , In a pale blue room,
Sits a lonely bowl… An omnipotent soul in brown water.

Lost in thought, floating here and there
Has the world, hidden away somewhere.
The air bubbles rise whispering tales of his treasure.

We’ve not seen the kingdom he keeps.
We’re just passers by.
We’ve don’t see this mythical door
In his quantum endless sky.

Turning… Colors of deep reds and blues.
Nothing to lose.
No time here… Smaller than it used to be.
No guarantees.

We’ve not heard the song that he sings…
We’ve not caught his eye.
We don’t know his thoughts or desires.
In his quantum endless sky.

Turning… Colors of deep reds and blues.
Nothing to lose.
No time here… Smaller than it used to be.
No guarantees.

It’s like falling slow - Imprisoned by memory
An electric glow - Fulfilling prophecy
It’s the big unknown - Drawing it closer… closer.
No boundaries - Small, all in the same.
