Big Eyed Fish

This song is by Dave Matthews Band and appears on the Bootleg album The Lillywhite Sessions (2001).

Story of a man who decided not to breathe
Turned red, purple, and blue, colorful indeed
No matter how his friends begged, well, he would not concede
And now he's dead, 'cause everybody know you've got to breathe

But, oh God, under the weight of life
Things seem brighter on the other side
Lighter on the other side

another one, see this monkey, sittin' in his tree
One day decided to climb down and ran off to the city
Look at him now, tired, and drunk, and living in the street
As good as dead, you see, a monkey should know "stay up your tree"

But, oh God, under the weight of life
Things seem brighter on the other side
Oh God, but under the weight of life
Things seem much lighter on the other side

No way, no way, no way out

another one, a big eyed fish, swimmin' in the sea
And how he dreamed, he wants to be a bird, swooping diving through the breeze
One day, he caught big blue wave up on to the beach
Now he's dead, you see, a fish's dreams should stay in the sea

well God, under the weight of life
Things seem brighter on the other side
But, oh God, under the weight of life
Things seem brighter on the other side

No way, no way, no way out
No way out...
