(We'll never be) Deep Ones

With (admittedly not especially sincere) apologies to H.P. Lovecraft, Lorde and Maurice Gee:

I've never had a swim on Devil's Reef
I cut my teeth on arcane books in New England
And I'm not proud of my address
In a shaken town, no post code envy

But every story's like:
Sharp teeth
Fish lips
Undersea vacations
Bloodstains
Old ways
Eldritch incantions

We don't care, we're making Elder Signs in our dreams

But everybody's like:
Innsmouth
Fishmen
Cyclopean proportions
Scabrous
Squamous
Euclidean distortions

We don't care, we aren't caught up in your fishy stare

[Chorus]
And we'll never be Deep Ones (Deep Ones)
It don't run in our blood
That kind of flux will not excite, we wait until the stars are right
Let him be your ruler (ruler)
From the South Pacific Sea
And mortals He'll rule, He'll rule, He'll rule, He'll rule
Cthulhu dreams reality

But every story's like...

[...]

Ia ia ia ia
He awakens from his dreams
And all the loyal cultists scream

Ia ia ia ia
We've got the Wilberforces here
We aren't caught up in your fishy stare

And we'll never be Deep Ones...
