This song is inspired by the made for TV fakeumentary about Mermaids and how they evolved from apes just as homo sapiens did.


Prehistoric apes left the shore
Was it for food, or did they get bored?
Killing sharks with their little webbed hands
Developed tools as they left the land

For many years, we drift overhead, unaware what's on the seabed.
Do you believe?
A tail formed from their feet.

The killing fields, a test of sonar
Whale corpses and falling sea stars
Failed tests, maritime mess
Classified memos, a disgruntled scientist

This seems like a test of the government.
Oh no, it's a cover-up.
