The city keeps me aglow
Defends me from claws of hush and bore
Drags my bein' strayin' on the loud concrete and asphalt
Concedes a small shaky light to make all seem to shine
Just like the will o' the wisp.

The whale swims in it's lake
It's chant makes all shake like a seaquake
There meets sirens charmin' and lullin' from depth
Cursed to run out every now and then to look for a breath
Just tens of feet above there.

There is a place out there where I don't wanna live
And there's a place nearby where I just can't live at all.

The mountain holds my wrists
Defends me from mists and from time twists
Drawin' fast on this never stoppin' train toward end
Concedes a small sleepy gloom to make all seem just wise
As far as things ever can.

The whale's flyin' in the air
Just sneezin' a flare of need and scare
For it actually is a misfit fish swimmin' out it's pool
Forced to confess what it's seaquakes and sirens just were
Nothing but folds in the waves.
