  • So you live in the bottom of the sea,
    And you kill all that come near you
    But you are very lonely, because all the other fish
    Fear you
    And you crave companionship and someone to call your own;
    Because for the whole of your life
    You've been living alone.

    On a black day in black month
    At the black bottom of the sea,
    Your mother gave birth to you and died
    Immediately
    'Cause you can't have two killers living
    In the same pad
    And when your mother knew that her time had come
    She was really rather glad.

    Death in the sea, death in the sea,
    Somebody please come and help me,
    Come and help me
    Fishes can't fly, fishes can't fly,
    Fishes can't and neither can I, neither can I

    Now I'm really rather like you,
    For I've killed all the love I ever had
    By not doing all I ought to and by leaving
    My mind coming bad.
    And I too am a killer,
    For emotion runs as deep as flesh
    And I too am so lonely, and I wish that I could forget
    We need love,
    We need love,
    We need love
