Siamese Fighting Fish (Lyrics)
By Jeffrey Brian Liebowitz

I'll never know what's in your brain
But fish I'm guessing me and you we probably think the same
All this silence masquerades
This cacophony of crying, this plethoric rage
Stoicism, so it seems
The only time I'm free to feel is in my dreams
Motionless but I know you see
The biggest waves come crashing down inside of me

I don't ever want to fit in
To this world that I know is so cruel
Even if you all accepted me
I'd still say I'm nobody's fool
And I'll never begin

So I swim
Just like my Siamese fighting fish
I'm all alone, nowhere to roam
But don't you get too close
I'll bite your head off

Nature gave me just one choice
And underwater all I hear is my own voice
Can't somebody get close to me
I promise to suspend all my pugnacity
The water's peaceful but I'm not
Another war with every thought it's all I've got
So I plan my big escape
I'm held against my will it's like I'm being raped

You can call me dark and disturbed
Even misanthropic would be just fine
But I'll never follow your lead
So if you want get in back of this line
I'll never begin

So I swim
Just like my Siamese fighting fish
I'm all alone, nowhere to roam
But don't you get too close
I'll bite your head off

I would rather die
In the middle of the night
Have no one know
Until morning's glow
What did you really miss?
I guess you'll never know
