Adrift in the pool, I feel right at home
Single-celled ancestors laugh at my bones
Still disconnected from an earthly home phone
It's the only way I'll ever know that primordial zone

Wait for the call but the phone never rang
There on the wall like a dog in the rain
The cord it was twisted but not quite insane
It's a shame I'll never really know the love that remains

Martha writes letters and cries all the time
Danny wrote notes, spoke, and tossed her a line
Said "this house seems perfect. And the water seems fine"
It's a shame they ever even saw 'For Sale' on the sign

Pool days
School days
Fool days
