lyrics

the lions stood in line
they were a roar away from cryin'
they were a roar away from cryin'
but they were still lions

and the lions lined the sails
with their eyes on the whales
fins breaking water
with laughter and cloudering
cephalopodic blistering enjoyment of the sea

we saw the whales
they were playing in the sea
we saw the whales
amidst the ocean

we saw the whales they were playing in the sea
we saw the whales and what we saw
we all wanted very much to be
we wanted to float like fish in the water
but we'd only end up fodder
for the sharks in the water
in the shadow
of the blubber whales
the blubber whales
the blubber whales
and their shark-fin trails
