lyrics

The ocean is wide and oh, so deep,
but the humans all swim by the shore
Little old me, in an effort to be free,
went in search of a little bit more

I came across something deep and dark,
reserved for amoeba and stone
And if you’re a human around these parts,
you will find that you’re there on your own

CHORUS: Come tread the water with me
I bet you will give up so easily
It’s far too much effort, you see

Boys from the land have offered their hand
to pull me back in to the shore
But once you have strayed from the usual way,
you just can’t go back anymore
And the amoeba, they don’t accept you either,
so you tread water somewhere in between
And all those who try to stay by my side,
eventually see what I mean

CHORUS

Sometimes I spy an object floating by,
from that living world into mine
I grasp it in so close to my skin
to recall how I felt as child
Is it any wonder I plummet so far under
and I'm dragged in the tide to the floor?
When I chose to stray from the usual way
in my search for a little bit more?

CHORUS
