A shimmering fish in the bright sea

I wonder, I wonder

How that fish doesn't breathe

Under, under

The water of the ocean waves

Conceals, conceals

That which we do not brave

But reveals, reveals

The secrets from within its depths

So lonely, lonely

To those who do not fear death

Only, only

A song upon the ocean's spray

I wonder, I wonder. "What's next?" I say.
