Underwater (2004)

Written by Achilles Tenderloin

There’s so much beauty in this world.
I don’t know if I’ll ever see again.
They say I’ve got my daddy’s eyes.
I keep my eyes closed underwater
in an oceanic uterus, alone
in a swollen belly, rollin’, tumblin’ my soul.
They say that god lives underwater,
cradlin’ all creation down below the swell.
How swell, oh well, I s’pose I’ll never know;
I keep my eyes closed underwater.
I don’t know if I’ll ever see dry land.
They say I’ve got my daddy’s eyes.
Goodbye, are you my mother,
womb I don’t know if I’ll ever see again?
They say I’ve got my daddy’s eyes.
