This song started out as two entirely different songs. I changed the key of one song, realized it would be better as half of the other song and the rest is history, I guess. The lyrics came out of nowhere and if you are having trouble understanding them, that was the point. The song ended up being about two goldfish living in a fishbowl but the words can be applied towards a human's life as well.. at least, that's how I meant for it to be interpreted. As always, it's the listener who creates meaning to a song. I hope you enjoy!


I can see them smiling as they look inside this fake habitat that we swim in.
If only we could breathe on our own, we could start a new life.
And everything would be perfect.
Everything would be beautiful.
We swim back and forth, float on and on and on.
You are all I have in this world.
You are all I have in this fishbowl.

They take us for granted and everyday is the same.
We could be free if only we were meant to breathe.
