Little Fish

from The Sea Dance by Peter Arvidson



I am a little bit, I am a little bit denied, what am I for?
I am a little bit, but not the very least bit surprised for what's in store
Don't you take me at your word, don't you tell
You gonna take me at my word, what do you spell?
In the throat, in the road, in the car, I can sell
You gonna take me at my word my autumn belle
You gonna take me down the road
Umbrellas pop open, abandon your focus
Take me at my word, I will be here
I'll be here to guide you, I will light the flame
I'll let it burn up, burn it inside you
We're going to escape
Inside my house I have my own rules
Behind the glass I am the super-fool
I'm marking the exits, I'm marking the exits
I'm twisting the bars and the monkey goes
Far off into the summer shows
Well what does he know? What does he know?
I'm a little fish in the mix of this
I'm a little fish on your party list
I'm a little fish in the mix of this
Guess you couldn't get A list?
I'm the destructive lips that you want to kiss
And I'm a little fish in the mix of this
It's never the time to define what is mine
In the shadows I roam until the day you come home
Gonna let it burn
