In which Zero meets the Mother Fish and we learn her backstory.



Pagoda is the mother of
The fish who sailed to sea
Investigate the rumors and
In time you’ll come to see
That every motivation has
A secret underneath
A dirty little happenstance
To drag you down beneath

Pagoda finds her memory
Lost long ago at sea
Beaten down to half an inch
Of all she used to be
Recovering her instincts
She hovers near the beach
And all those little memories
Are suddenly in reach

Poseidon is her nemesis
And Neptune wears her emphasis
It’s all a tangled seaweed mess
A Hollywood adventure quest
In love and life she has been blessed
But satisfy her emptiness
And you alone will warm her chest
As she fills her esophagus

The Mother Fish, The Mother Fish
Mother of all that you wish
The Mother Fish, The Mother Fish
Say hello to Mother Fish

The Mother Fish, The Mother Fish
Mother of all that you wish
The Mother Fish, The Mother Fish
Ovoviviparous Mother Fish
