lyrics

[Gods:]
A wise creature emerges from the inky depths
He bears ancient knowledge from waves
Now you must welcome the fishman into your homes
He will teach you how to behave.

We deathless gods witnessed him crawl up from the grimy sand
He will test your small island clan.

[Villagers:]
Fishman, why are you here?
How can you be a seer?
Calm down, depart from fear.

We can’t
Wait
To stay
Too long

To hear
His
Fish song.

[Gods:]
His slippery skin transcends maritime boundaries
With muscly legs he ambulates
The darkened secrets of things he brings from the seas
He sings deep truths, this scaly muse.

We deathless gods witnessed him crawl up from the grimy sand
He will test your small island clan.

[Villagers:]
Collapse the distinction
Between gods and humans
The fish can’t be outdone.

We can’t
Wait
To stay
Too long

To hear
His
Fish song.

O fishman
We need you
We can do
Much with you.
