lyrics

Ziggy returned with a flash and gave him a brilliant smile. "Let me show you around" she exclaimed.

He looked with heightened vision, no lenses on his eyes, to see what was foretold in ancient rhymes. As Ziggy guided him deeper, he thought of all the words and songs he'd heard, all the sacred rants and holy tomes. He knew they fell short of what he was seeing. For here before him were ageless childhood illusions. Imagination made so real. The source of all the fragments musicians and the holy had used to light their souls and paint heaven upon Earthly moments.

"It's your first night in town kid. I know just the place to take you. You need to unwind."

Her laughter as she said these words was infectious and he could not help but join in. Ziggy grabbed his hand and they sank swiftly, down, down, down, into the depths to vanish far below into a neon glow. He momentarily thought, "Why are there neon lights in the ocean?" before Ziggy dragged him through a doorway of light.

Mermaids (All Hail)

In the darkest depths of the ocean is where you'll want to be
There you'll find the dancing girls you've always wanted to see
They shine luminescent there like downtown city lights
They will give you perfect days and they will give you endless nights

All hail the mermaids
Far below the sea
All hail the mermaids
There for you and me

Hanging there suspended is a silver shining pole
You can stay for hours there, you just have to pay your toll
The ocean isn't heaven without craving some love
You may call it sinning, but it all comes from above

All hail the mermaids
Far below the sea
All hail the mermaids
There for you and me

There for you and me
There for you and me
There for you and me
There for you and me
