lyrics

He took his two boys swimming
Out every other day
They were his water babies
His wife was less inclined that way

The truth was swallowed by the sea
The truth it swallowed, swallowed, swallowed him

A giant horse was offered
A scam as far as he could tell
He tried to warn them off it
They didn't take it very well

The truth was swallowed by the sea
The truth it swallowed, swallowed, swallowed him

Laocoön, Laocoön
He couldn't foretell his doom

They came out of the water
Two silent messengers of fate
He tried to fight it for a while
Perhaps he was a little late

His last words to the Trojans
Before his terrifying fate
I fear the Greeks despite their gifts
Ignore me at your peril

The truth was swallowed by the sea
The truth it swallowed, swallowed, swallowed him

Laocoön, Laocoön
He couldn't foretell his doom

Laocoön, Laocoön
He couldn't foretell his doom
