about

The alternate reality beckons you...

“Change your world and change your mind; otherwise, no change at all.”

lyrics

Lyrics:

We welcome you with open arms
With open fins and open gills
We welcome you with smiling eyes
Antennae and tentacles

Our castles made of sand and weeds
Have slipped so gently out to sea
Our underworld is heaven-scent
But hellions lurk just underneath

So watch your step and give wide berth
To anything that seems inert
It’s not much different here from Earth
Our babies laugh, our ladies flirt

And if you find you miss your home
Just call up the dial-a-view
On those late nights when you’re alone
Imaging the chosen few

He-ey Ho-oh

We welcome you with gritting teeth
With fragrant breath and humming lips
We welcome you to meet yourself
With forking tails and mermaid’s hips

Our women want to lure you in
To make for them a sacred space
So watch your step and watch your back
For blinking eyes and bleeding lace

He-ey Ho-oh

Oblivion, oblivious
But relatively harmless
Change your world
And change your mind
Otherwise no change at all
--
