The light dims like a lanternfish
Over me and my blue-finned brother
We have danced this dance a thousand times
And this time I'm not coming back
This time I'm not coming back

Stubborn as a starfish
Who clings to rock-rough ideas
Not concerned about the danger
The crushing tide brings in

We say nothing can stand between us
In our mirror-watered tidepool home
But I am secretly becoming a bird
