This is a song protesting war and corruption. Pretty much my favorite of my songs, it's never been well liked here. BAH.

A big shark with a toothy grin,
Swims towards you with a gun in his hand,
He’s the biggest fish of us all,
What he says is law.

So many with signs in their hands,
They hold those signs high above their heads.
To the heavens they cry, so sad,
“Violence turns the ocean red.”

Mr. Zebra Fish with the wild stripes,
Is the only one of his kind,
Big shark with a toothy grin,
Swum towards him with a gun in his hand.

Little Yellow fish took a blue fish to be his wife,
The day she said “I Do’ was the happiest day of his life,
Now she’s gone and he’s all alone,
He doesn’t know what to do.

Now he’s all alone, and she is dead,
So he stands in the street with a sign in his hand,
His cry joins the millions,
“Violence turns the ocean red”

Big shark with a toothy grin,
Swims towards you with a gun in his hand,
As you lift your sign high,
As you cry, as you cry.

“Violence turns the ocean red”,
“Violence turns the ocean red”,
“Violence turns the ocean red”,
“Violence turns the ocean-”,

-BAM-
