The Minnow and the Trout

This song is by A Fine Frenzy and appears on the album One Cell in the Sea (2007).

Help me out, said the minnow to the trout
I was lost and found myself swimming in your mouth
Oh, help me chief
I've got to plans for you and me
I swear upon this riverbed
I'll help you feel young again

Oh, not your every day circumstance
A Hummingbird taking coffee with the ants
And I said

Please, I know that we're different
But we were one cell in the sea in the beginning
And what we're made of was all the same once
We're not that different after all

Help me out, said the eagle to the dove
I've fallen from my nest so high above
Oh, help me fly
I am too afraid try
Now saddled with a fear of heights
I'm praying you can set me right

Oh, not your everyday circumstance
The elephant, sharing peanuts with the rats
And I said

Please, I know that we're different
But we were one cell in the sea in the beginning
And what we're made of was all the same once
We're not that different after all

We are tied in history
Connected like a family
We are tied in history
Connected like a family
Family

So please, I know that we're different
But we were one cell in the sea in the beginning
And what we're made of was all the same
We're not that different
Not that different after all
