Life In an Aquarium (Collab)

Swimming with cherish in the chilling sea

Swimming with cherish in the chilling sea, Teasing the hot and humid summer

Swimming with cherish in the chilling sea, Teasing the hot and humid summer, Meeting new species and bubbling water

Swimming with cherish in the chilling sea, Teasing the hot and humid summer, Meeting new species and bubbling water, Avoiding the carnivores to save our souls.

Staring the colourful aquatic plants

Staring the colourful aquatic plants, Which we can't see on our grassy lands

Staring the colourful aquatic plants, Which we can't see on our grassy lands, Flapping our tails on the chilly sand

Staring the colourful aquatic plants, Which we can't see on our grassy lands, Flapping our tails on the chilly sand, Want to experience this beauty once.

Bubbles of my iridescent breath float around

Bubbles of my iridescent breath float around, In a space of four glass walls I am bound

Bubbles of my iridescent breath float around, In a space of four glass walls I am bound, There are pebbles below

Bubbles of my iridescent breath float around, In a space of four glass walls I am bound, There are pebbles below, colourful and stagnant

Bubbles of my iridescent breath float around, In a space of four glass walls I am bound, There are pebbles below, colourful and stagnant, Other fishes fly past

Bubbles of my iridescent breath float around, In a space of four glass walls I am bound, There are pebbles below, colourful and stagnant, Other fishes fly past, doing nothing extravagant

Bubbles of my iridescent breath float around, In a space of four glass walls I am bound, There are pebbles below, colourful and stagnant, Other fishes fly past, doing nothing extravagant, Sometimes the kid comes to see us

Bubbles of my iridescent breath float around, In a space of four glass walls I am bound, There are pebbles below, colourful and stagnant, Other fishes fly past, doing nothing extravagant, Sometimes the kid comes to see us, going about our business

Bubbles of my iridescent breath float around, In a space of four glass walls I am bound, There are pebbles below, colourful and stagnant, Other fishes fly past, doing nothing extravagant, Sometimes the kid comes to see us, going about our business, It is advised to watch us do that

Bubbles of my iridescent breath float around, In a space of four glass walls I am bound, There are pebbles below, colourful and stagnant, Other fishes fly past, doing nothing extravagant, Sometimes the kid comes to see us, going about our business, It is advised to watch us do that, for we relieve stress...

They took me away

They took me away, placed a glass cage over my grave

They took me away, placed a glass cage over my grave, But I swim in water-so they assume I have no feelings

They took me away, placed a glass cage over my grave, But I swim in water-so they assume I have no feelings, they locked me in a world where I’m trapped and limited by ceilings,

And when you look into my eyes

And when you look into my eyes, you may think you see no fire

And when you look into my eyes, you may think you see no fire, That’s a lie.

And when you look into my eyes, you may think you see no fire, That’s a lie. You cant see my emotions because you assume fishes don’t cry,

But I miss the warmth of my home in an ocean where I belong

But I miss the warmth of my home in an ocean where I belong, And now i'm in a world

But I miss the warmth of my home in an ocean where I belong, And now i'm in a world, in which you left me with bruised bones.

the liquid movements slither through the gills

the liquid movements slither through the gills, as the gigantic being feels the rushing thrills.

as we are dispersed from our home

as we are dispersed from our home, the one place we’ve ever known

we are surrounded but yet

we are surrounded but yet, so ungrounded

we are surrounded but yet, so ungrounded my home is now filled with un-recycled plastic

we are surrounded but yet, so ungrounded my home is now filled with un-recycled plastic and the fins i used to sway are now attached to elastic

What can you feel when your almost boundless in a sea? Surrounded by nothingness, floating on towards belief. To where you will go is a question only moments can see. To float on and find destiny as it’s face may bring relief.

What can you feel when your almost boundless in a sea? Surrounded by nothingness, floating on towards belief. To where you will go is a question only moments can see. To float on and find destiny as it’s face may bring relief. Until you feel a sudden shriek. An invisible barrier that blocks what you seek.

So you drift to the known and try to remember home.

So you drift to the known and try to remember home. The only solace to this place that controls where you roam.

Water surrounds me in every corner I turn to...

Water surrounds me in every corner I turn to... No escape from this place unless a human being allows me to leave and live free in the open sea...

But that rarely happens to any of my fellow neighbors in this aquarium....

But that rarely happens to any of my fellow neighbors in this aquarium.... Tons of people come to this place to just look at my face..

They think I'm cool looking....

They think I'm cool looking.... But they don't know I feel lonely, bored, and homesick...

I want to go back home...

I want to go back home... I want to go back to the deep blue sea

A wall.

A wall. A clear steel wall.

A wall. A clear steel wall. With creatures at every turn.

A wall. A clear steel wall. With creatures at every turn. My solitude within me burns.

A wall. A clear steel wall. With creatures at every turn. My solitude within me burns. Bubbles fill my mouth like gumdrops. The crystal blue water warms me like a blanket. I'm trapped in this world. Nowhere to go. Only this Aquarium down below, that flows.

Tons of people stare at me everyday.

Tons of people stare at me everyday. They see me as useless prey.

I was saved and imprisoned

I was saved and imprisoned, Not sure how I should feel about it

For some this world is all they know.

For some this world is all they know. All they ever long for is the food they get every day.

Trapped in these glass walls

Trapped in these glass walls Watching people passing by, roaming the halls

Trapped in these glass walls Watching people passing by, roaming the halls. Beady eyes staring at me.

Trapped in these glass walls Watching people passing by, roaming the halls. Beady eyes staring at me. How I long to be back at my home, in the sea.

Trapped in these glass walls Watching people passing by, roaming the halls. Beady eyes staring at me. How I long to be back at my home, in the sea. Other fish swimming around.

Trapped in these glass walls Watching people passing by, roaming the halls. Beady eyes staring at me. How I long to be back at my home, in the sea. Other fish swimming around. Unlike the calm sea, this new place is bustling with sound.

Kids and adults pointing and tapping.

Kids and adults pointing and tapping. What are these humans trying to accomplish with all this trapping.

Kids and adults pointing and tapping. What are these humans trying to accomplish with all this trapping. Stuck and taken away from my parents.

Kids and adults pointing and tapping. What are these humans trying to accomplish with all this trapping. Stuck and taken away from my parents. My home is no sweet house or tent.

It's a glass dome where I am not free.

It's a glass dome where I am not free. Where every hour of the day I am only here for people to see.

It's a glass dome where I am not free. Where every hour of the day I am only here for people to see. Food is scarce and there is no privacy.

It's a glass dome where I am not free. Where every hour of the day I am only here for people to see. Food is scarce and there is no privacy. I might try escape? To get back in the sea

It's a glass dome where I am not free. Where every hour of the day I am only here for people to see. Food is scarce and there is no privacy. I might try escape? To get back in the sea. Maybe I might live a life like Nemo and Dory.

In an ocean full of creatures Whose fate is unknown Momma, Papa? Were they taken away?

In an ocean full of creatures Whose fate is unknown Momma, Papa? Were they taken away? With those cruel monsters

Who won't let us swim another day

Who won't let us swim another day, Should I fight

Who won't let us swim another day, Should I fight Or should I swim?

Who won't let us swim another day, Should I fight Or should I swim? Save my family

Sparkling blue water bubbles to the bottom

Pebbled rocks skittering across the glassed floor

Hues of every color,

Hues of every color, swim lazily like leaves falling in autumn

Scales catching the glint of light from above the artificial water

Glassed walls on all four sides

Glassed walls on all four sides, like a cage

Glassed walls on all four sides, like a cage, capturing the beauty in

Fishes swim by

Fishes swim by, with their little fins

Fishes swim by, with their little fins, looking for a way out

Fishes swim by, with their little fins, looking for a way out, they swim

How treacherous of humans to captivate the beauty of life underwater in a glassed box

With onlookers gazing in

With onlookers gazing in, seeing them as objects and not a species of life

With onlookers gazing in, seeing them as objects and not a species of life, why don’t they just unlock the locks

With onlookers gazing in, seeing them as objects and not a species of life, why don’t they just unlock the locks?

A whole other world under the whispering waves

A whole other world under the whispering waves, So hauntingly beautiful

A whole other world under the whispering waves, So hauntingly beautiful, so dangerously grave

A whole other world under the whispering waves, So hauntingly beautiful, so dangerously grave A life in an aquarium to please the viewers

A whole other world under the whispering waves, So hauntingly beautiful, so dangerously grave A life in an aquarium to please the viewers Sparkling life

A whole other world under the whispering waves, So hauntingly beautiful, so dangerously grave A life in an aquarium to please the viewers Sparkling life, when really

A whole other world under the whispering waves, So hauntingly beautiful, so dangerously grave A life in an aquarium to please the viewers Sparkling life, when really, they have no future

Muffled voices.

Muffled voices. Stares that seem to last for aeons.

Muffled voices. Stares that seem to last for aeons. And a periodic, granular meal.

Muffled voices. Stares that seem to last for aeons. And a periodic, granular meal. That’s all I deserve now.

For I am

For I am an aquarium fish

For I am an aquarium fish, a sideways glance

For I am an aquarium fish, a sideways glance, a playful gaze

For I am an aquarium fish, a sideways glance, a playful gaze, a luxurious liability.

For I am an aquarium fish, a sideways glance, a playful gaze, a luxurious liability. No, I haven’t seen the sea.

For I am an aquarium fish, a sideways glance, a playful gaze, a luxurious liability. No, I haven’t seen the sea. Or those who gave me

For I am an aquarium fish, a sideways glance, a playful gaze, a luxurious liability. No, I haven’t seen the sea. Or those who gave me the boon of birth

For I am an aquarium fish, a sideways glance, a playful gaze, a luxurious liability. No, I haven’t seen the sea. Or those who gave me the boon of birth, a moment’s mirth.

All I have seen

All I have seen is tepid, O2 laden water

All I have seen is tepid, O2 laden water, a few gay rocks, mute anubia leaves

All I have seen is tepid, O2 laden water, a few gay rocks, mute anubia leaves and two sad, fishy souls

All I have seen is tepid, O2 laden water, a few gay rocks, mute anubia leaves and two sad, fishy souls for company in a crystal cage

I was built to swim and float

I was built to swim and float, not just to blink and flaunt

I was built to swim and float, not just to blink and flaunt awaiting rejection, replacement and death

I was built to swim and float, not just to blink and flaunt awaiting rejection, replacement and death when I turn shabby, frail and gaunt.

See what an ingrate I am!

See what an ingrate I am! Unworthy of visiting this haven

See what an ingrate I am! Unworthy of visiting this haven, this hellish heaven

See what an ingrate I am! Unworthy of visiting this haven, this hellish heaven and escaping

See what an ingrate I am! Unworthy of visiting this haven, this hellish heaven and escaping the cold scythe of survival.

Laughter.

Laughter. Mad, inaudible laughter

Laughter. Mad, inaudible laughter that burbles out

Laughter. Mad, inaudible laughter that burbles out as mocking rainbow bubbles.

Laughter. Mad, inaudible laughter that burbles out as mocking rainbow bubbles. Tears.

Laughter. Mad, inaudible laughter that burbles out as mocking rainbow bubbles. Tears. Expressionless, invisible tears

Laughter. Mad, inaudible laughter that burbles out as mocking rainbow bubbles. Tears. Expressionless, invisible tears pouring every second

Laughter. Mad, inaudible laughter that burbles out as mocking rainbow bubbles. Tears. Expressionless, invisible tears pouring every second from my blessed yet cursed existence

Making the swirls

Making the swirls saltier

Making the swirls saltier...

Making the swirls saltier... saltier

Making the swirls saltier... saltier...

Feel of inability to anything persistent in a sense

Feel of inability to anything persistent in a sense, Actions and passions hardly accomplished

Feel of inability to anything persistent in a sense, Actions and passions hardly accomplished, Sole performance - being an entertainment

Swimming waiting for the light to shine.

Swimming waiting for the light to shine. Sinking

I'm multicolored Sure to attract attention All colors they cherish, I contain I swish to and fro Displaying my rainbow design The crowd seems mesmerized by my display

-@faked

Darting behind a sheet of glass

Swimming together in a colorful mass

The creatures stare

Do they care?

The bottom layered with fake grass

Ripples filtering the sunlight’s beams

Water flowing in silent streams

The currents flow

The plant life grow

They dance under fitful dreams

Competition for a bit of food

Competition for a bit of food A large tank, only a bit subdued

Competition for a bit of food A large tank, only a bit subdued The creatures clap

Competition for a bit of food A large tank, only a bit subdued The creatures clap As our bodies flap

Competition for a bit of food A large tank, only a bit subdued The creatures clap As our bodies flap The aquarium in all a cheerful mood

Under the tides the bright tails swish

Under the tides the bright tails swish In fountains where creatures make their wish

Under the tides the bright tails swish In fountains where creatures make their wish Swim joyfully

Under the tides the bright tails swish In fountains where creatures make their wish Swim joyfully Play noisily

Under the tides the bright tails swish In fountains where creatures make their wish Swim joyfully Play noisily It’s nice to have the life of a fish

I'm just a fish

I'm just a fish trapped in this bowl of glass

I'm just a fish trapped in this bowl of glass longing to break free through these walls

I'm just a fish trapped in this bowl of glass longing to break free through these walls, and they?

I'm just a fish trapped in this bowl of glass longing to break free through these walls, and they? staring joyfully at me

I'm just a fish trapped in this bowl of glass longing to break free through these walls, and they? staring joyfully at me i feel that living isn't existing anymore

and still

and still, tending to live the beauty

and still, tending to live the beauty within

and still, tending to live the beauty within this cage

and still, tending to live the beauty within this cage through the sparkling bubbles

and still, tending to live the beauty within this cage through the sparkling bubbles, i swim

and still, tending to live the beauty within this cage through the sparkling bubbles, i swim.

and still, tending to live the beauty within this cage through the sparkling bubbles, i swim..

and still, tending to live the beauty within this cage through the sparkling bubbles, i swim...
