Look at this big eyed fish swimming in the sea oh
How it dreams to be a bird swoop and diving through the breeze
So one day he caught this big old wave up on to the beach
Now the fish is dead
You see, cause fish should knows
Stay down in the sea

But, oh God
Under the weight of life
Things seem brighter on the other side
Lighter on the other side

Story of this man
Who decided not to breathe
Turned red, purple, then blue
Colorful indeed
No matter how his friends begged
Well, he would not concede
And now the man is dead
You see, cause every mans knows
You got to breathe

But, oh God
Under the weight of life
Things seem brighter on the other side
Lighter on the other side

Another one: See this monkey sitting on a tree
One day, decided to climb down
And run off to the city
Look at him now, tired and drunk
And living on the street
As good as dead
You see, a monkey should know
Stay up on your fucking tree

But, oh God
Under the weight of life
Things seem brighter on the other side
Oh, God
But under the weight of life
Things seem much brighter on the other side
No way, no way, no way out of here
