The Mountain Goats – Pez Dorado Lyrics

Pez Dorado Lyrics – The Mountain Goats

Echoes from a nursery rhyme
Hide in plain sight all this time
Here you come splashing in your summer clothes
You and your pale pink toes
Just there where the shadow falls
There we follow one and all
Can’t resist the creeping dark
Ready to make our mark

Little red fish beneath the surface of the water
Testing the break point in case we get lucky

Ancient blood is patient blood
We were here before the flood
Waking for our time to shine
Sparks in a silver mine
Shorebirds deal death all day long
We are weak but they are strong
Lose some friends along the way
Then in you come one day

Little red fish beneath the surface of the water
Scales in the sun, stars in a shot glass
Testing the break point in case we get lucky

Take your time, we’ve got all day
Days beyond that, come what may
If you get home tell all your friends
The spawning tide never ends
Say what you felt when you found us here
Here where the waters run crystal clear
One summer day in your summer clothes
The day you saw several ghosts

Little red fish beneath the surface of the water
Hungry for years, senses sharpened by the hunger
Testing the break point in case we get lucky
