If you like Rap, and Fish

Then check out this song by Eyedea & Abilities... the lyrics are copy/pasted here for your enjoyment.

"Birth of a Fish..." by Eyedea & Abilities

He lives in a four by two glass box, it reminds me of my head
I wish my floor would have rocks, but it's covered with puddles instead
If I could be him, life would be great,
I could erase this permanent frown, I wouldn't even be held down by my own weight

I woke up, walked to the tank to hear his thoughts on yesterday
"How was it?" I asked
And after a tap on the glass, He looked my way
Then gave me this depressed expression
Impressed, its best just to say
"Besides the tides and the grey skies, it was ok!"

And I said, "Hey mister fish, you get all that you wish
You got, nothing to complain about while hanging out in this abyss"
Well he replied "Well Existence is bliss, there's so much that you miss
Besides, get off the trip, happiness is just a myth"

I said "Living in water is extremely more peaceful than
life fighting with minds, blinded by evil, and forced to see through these two peep holes.
It seems a redeemed freedom, not being limited by walls
That only means I qualify as ground for the sky when it falls
That only means I qualify as ground for the sky when it falls
That only means I qualify as ground for the sky when it falls
That only means I qualify as ground for the sky when it falls"
But Mr. Fish just laughed as I went on and on and on!

So I interrupted his chuckle, putting up a middle finger
And he boldly told me, it's too bad I'm such a thinker
So Arrogantly I asked "How could someone think too much?"
He added that insanity lingers and thoughts brought me to the brink of such

He said "You live inside a head that reminds me of my glass box
And everyone's the same; all brains are contained by your reality frame
And chained to a terrain, its trained hard not to change
And once you see what I've explained you hit the jackpot!"

And at that very moment it was like my eyes really opened
The air that previously surrounded me was now an ocean
Still totally invisible except for minor pieces of debris
Then Mr. Fish pushed up to the glass and he looked just like me!

My whole world spun around, I didn't understand
But I realized I was no longer a man
So I thought about what he said
And asked him what was going on
And he said, "You didn't know it but you were the fish all along!"
He said, "Congratulations, you did it, you broke free
You're just a fish like the rest of humanity."
Now it took me a long time to get adjusted to this tank
But now I know what I am, and so to that man I give thanks

I've always lived inside this glass box that reminds him of his head
It just goes to show ya that your minds your own monster
Realities what you make it, if you take it away
Your just a fish, like me, swimming in the powdered water

hmmm, if somebody could convert that over to a country or bluegrass version, it might be worth listening to

I wonder what kind of fish he's talking about... 4x2 is probably a 90g breeder. Gravel substrate, no indication of tankmates... maybe it's an Oscar? Or something bigger.
