This track is a reworking of an old Shortwave song called "Little Fish" that features two of our former singers, Katie Isbell and Kyla Cox.


You bring the smell of a cold rain
You've been swimming down memory lane
You're diluting the blood in my veins
I'll cast this line out the window pane

Little fish, little fish, come a-walkin' out the pond
I ain't got no time to worry about where you've gone
Little fish, little fish, just come on, take the bait
I ain't got no time to sit around and wait

The banks are overflowing
I've been caught in this torrential downpour
But the mud is all that's growing
I can't tell if it's the ceiling or the floor

Little fish, little fish, let me feel the way you pull
I ain't got no time to dig another hole
Little fish, little fish, come and swim around my feet
Don't you know that there's always bigger fish to eat?

I smell something burning
The aroma's that of woodworks and love
Could it be that I'm still yearning
To grow wings like the birds have above?

Little fish, little fish, I can't find you in this lake
I ain't got no time to worry about your fate
Little fish, little fish, I think I'm nodding off to sleep
I'm all out of time to be lost out at sea
