Lyrics for Penelope by Pinback:

Oh Penelope
Are you filled with air
Swallowed oxygen
That makes you float up?
Is it Dropsy?
Will your lungs swell?
It's depressing me
To see you struggle

Oh Penelope
Are you filled with air
Swallowed oxygen
That makes you float up?
Is it Dropsy?
Will your lungs swell?
It's depressing me
To see you struggle

I'm treading water with my oars
Glass galleons anchored, ocean floors
I'm diving down with all my gear
In search of treasure, para me corazon

Take you to the forest
Let you feel the raindrops falling down
Seeping through your red scales
Eliminate the faucet
Eliminate the need for water
And replace it with a safe shell

Don't wanna see you floating upside down
On the top of the bowl when I
Come around to visit you
Don't wanna see you floating upside down, no girl
Need you there, need you there, need you there

Ooh, release that air
I'm treading water with my oars
Glass galleons anchored, ocean floors
I'm diving down with all my gear
In search of treasure, para me corazon

Take you to the forest
Let you feel the raindrops falling down
Seeping through your red scales
Eliminate the faucet
Eliminate the need for water
And replace it with a safe shell

If they summon the rains now
Are you gonna rise?
If they summon the rains now
Are you gonna rise?

Track 5 on “Blue Screen Life”

Inspired by Zach Smith’s Goldfish, Penelope, who would never make it to the bottom of the bowl without much struggle. She had either swallowed too much air and would expel it in a day and would be fine, or is a victim of dropsy, a disease fish can get where their lungs swell eventually leading to death in a few weeks.
