lyrics

Once upon a time
There was a whale
At night it rose up from the sea
Into the air
And it sang my songs to me
I can hear it in my brilliant dreams

One night the whale sang another song to me

If you are not me
You are my enemy
If you are not me
You are my enemy

Hunter if you choose to chase me down
Do you think you'll live to tell the tale
Oh no
But I will swallow you whole
And I'll make food of you
So that I can grow even larger still
And you can live on inside of me
You can live on inside of me

Nothing you can do but wait
Until you are no more a thing apart
We are pumping blood as one with my one and only beating heart
And your voice will serenade the angels who would lend
Will serenade the angels who would lend their ears to us

If you are not me
You are my enemy
If you are not me
You are you are my enemy
