lyrics

It's all very well to play Batman and Robbers
When the truth is a joke,
Somehow stranger in familiar rooms.

See him sit on his stool and point at the dummy,
Playing Hide and Speak.

Captain tell me I'm in charge.
Tell me, "Navigate."
Captain tell me, "Stay on course."
Tell me we're ok.

It's all very well to play Pirates and Preachers
When the truth is a joke,
And the joke is on you.

See him take to the stand, pointing out dummies,
Playing Whose Which is Right.

Captain tell me I'm in charge.
Tell me, "Navigate."
Captain tell me, "Stay on course."
Tell me we're ok.

Captain tell me, "Watch out for the birds!
Them birds sing so sweet.
They look awful pretty.
They got venom in they beak.
They bastardise our anthem while singin' in our ears.
So watch out for them birds, my son, they worse than they appear."

Captain tell me I'm in charge.
Tell me, "Navigate."
Captain never leave my side.
Captain never change.

Captain tell me, "Watch out for the birds!
Them birds sing so sweet.
They look awful pretty.
They got venom in they beak.
They bastardise our anthem and sing it in our ears.
So watch out for them birds, they deadlier than they appear."

Captain tell me, "Captain be as captain do,"
And I be captivated by his words,
While singing with the birds.
Captain be foolish for being so wise.
I kill my captain with ice in my eyes.
The birds be a-laughing, whistling for more.
I capture my audience for the encore.

The truth is the joke.
The truth is the joke.

about

April Fish Wellington, New Zealand

Stories are variations of truths. Stories are made up.
Stories are honest lies.

Stories become songs, and songs are poems cloaked in sound.
This is art.
Art is in the eye of the beholder.

∴ April Fish are artistic liars. The cheeky blighters.
