Lyrics:

Underwater City

[PART 1]

Deep under water where the angler-fish lurk
I drive a submarine to work
It's a high-paying job at a shell corporation
But my boss is a shark and my wife's a crustacean
I may be my family's sole breadwinner
But still every day we have algae for dinner
Before bed I take my octopus for a walk
Playing in the park with my neighbor's hybrid fish-dog
(It's a hybrid between a fish and a dog and can talk)

Saturday I swim to the grocery store
Walmart expanded to the ocean floor
The cashier is my friend and I know him well
He takes his smoke break in a diving bell
I buy some food and a lava lamp
Then I have to get home before that stuff gets damp

[CHORUS]

Welcome to
Underwater City, Underwater City
Life under the sea
It really is better
down where it's wetter
Take it from me

[PART 2]

We had the weight of the earth on our shoulders
But dead weight's not known to please the shareholders
We were making a killing
with offshore drilling
Exxon knew we'd end up here in the blue
They knew
So go and get your money belt
Let's go watch the ice sheets melt
You gotta break some eggs to make an omelette
So who cares if lady liberty gets her feet a bit wet?

[CHORUS]

Welcome to
New York City, Underwater City
Life under the sea
It may seem strange
and it sure is a change
from how things used to be

But that world is gone
That world is gone

[PART 3]

There's upsides to life on the deep ocean floor
Drilling for oil is so much easier than before
If you are hungry, come take a snack
I've got some fish-sticks in my plastic bag
Public transportation? I prefer castration
Could you show me the way to the next gas station?
Exploiting the earth may be akin to theft
but why would we stop if there's still something left

Welcome to New York City
Welcome to Underwater City
Welcome to New York City
Coulda been avoided don't deserve no pity
Welcome to New York City
Welcome to Underwater City
Coulda been avoided don't deserve no pity
[Exit]
