The rain’s in the ether. The rain’s in the ether. Such a strange flavor this rain in the ether.

I’m used to the water, the brine, the krill. Not this peculiar tang that is as fresh as the waving seaweed, yet bitter like the blue-green algae of a stagnant water. It tastes so foreign here.

There’s hair in the wind. There’s hair in the wind. Such a strange feeling this hair in the wind.

I’m used to the water, the current, the salt. Not this peculiar breeze that is as cold as the depths, yet cuts like sharp coral. It feels so heavy here.

The aroma’s in the atmosphere. The aroma’s in the atmosphere. Such a strange scent this aroma in the atmosphere.

I’m used to the water, the undertow, the waves. Not this peculiar odor that is as fragrant as the Leather Sea Star, yet stinks like the sulfur of an underwater volcano. It smells so pungent here.

There’s songs in the air. There’s songs in the air. Such a strange melody this song in the air.

I’m used to the water, the ebb, the flow. Not this peculiar music that is as poignant as the song of the whales, yet deafens like the grinding of ice on the ocean floor. It sounds so loud here.

The moon’s in the sky. The moon’s in the sky. Such a strange sight this moon in the sky.

I’m used to the water, the darkness, the light. Not this peculiar bright glow that is as haunting as the bioluminescent plankton on the waves, yet blinds like the ink of an octopus. It looks so alien here.
