"Fishing" lyrics - BO BURNHAM


It's unfortunate that the word for "catching fish by
Piercing their lips with hooks and dragging them
Onto a boat" is called fishing.

To the fish, fishing means something different. To
Fish is to live, to love, to be.

When the more aggressive fish find a lonely
Swimming human and rip the flesh from its stupid
Bones-that's called peopling.
