lyrics

NARRATOR:
Life can be lonely for an algal bloom. The Mississippi Dead Zone was born and raised in the gulf of Mexico, fed by fertilizer and runoff of at the mouth of the Mississippi River. The largest algal bloom in the world, it thought it was the only one of its kind. Then one day, from across the ancient trails of Atlantic sets and waves, it noticed another: The Baltic Sea Algae Bloom.

BALTIC SEA ALGAE BLOOM:
Fertilize my heart
Oxidize the dark parts
Tear the world apart
With you so far away

MISSISSIPPI DEAD ZONE:
You are a landlocked dream
Blue and green
In the Baltic Sea
Two of a kind, you and me

BOTH:
Hypoxia

NARRATOR:
These two felt destined to be together, but how? The expanse of the Atlantic Ocean, the confines of the Scandinavian Peninsula, so much stood square in the way. But they could feel the oceans slowly rising, and knew that all they had to do was wait. Before too long, these barriers to their boundless love would be submerged, and the two could reach across the great expanse and hold each other as they have long dreamed to do.

BALTIC SEA ALGAE BLOOM:
Nutrients saturate
Eutrophicate
Aiming to suffocate
Without you in my arms

BOTH:
Hypoxia

As the world gets warmer
Our love grows stronger
The poisoned waters
Rising to bring us together

BOTH:
Hypoxia
Fertilize my heart
