Wax Moth (1995)

By James Moats in Tucson, AZ

fish are swimming and trends are spinning
in my head there's no end to it
life is too short to miss the excitement
and watch it all fade away

just wait and see what becomes of me

inside people love to stare at you
falling clumsily around
inside people would love to share with you
if only you were inside

back home people are cloudy opaque dark and thick
back home people have faded
what have i seen in the chlorine dream

the light is burning wearing down wearing down
humanity's learning to burn it down burn it down

fish are floating and twins are sinning
in my head theres no end to it

just wait and see who depends on me

yesterday was full of reruns
i think i've seen this one before
stand up like erector
tear it down run it down

tonight you remind me of mean old black beard
pillaging my soul
i'll stand my ground if the ship goes down

fish are living and friends are giving
in my head theres no end to it

just wait and see don't ever question me
