underscores – The fish song Lyrics

The fish song Lyrics – underscores

Just outside the city
I was holding something
No one’s ever seen before
Its eyes looked kind of pretty
Its irises were blacked out
And its scales were made of gold
Even through the flash floods
Spared it every harvest because I wanted it to grow
The scientist came knocking
And something deep within me that refused to let it go

I know you are
On to something, on to something
I know you are
On to something, on to something

So we gave it to the city
In hope that maybe one day, it’d pass its children all its luck
Something of a mascot
Until one day they had found a silver belly facing up
For a week they kept it quiet
And without a proper burial, they kept it in a jar
And stressed until they passed the bone that overfilled with sand
And then they swallowed a lucky charm

I know you are
On to something, on to something
I know you are
On to something, on to something
I know you are
Something new
