YouTuber and singer David Sikabwe, who operates the channel Going Spaceward, turned the adorable viral children’s song “Baby Shark” into a pit of brooding feelings with his own dark, emo rendition.
But Sikabwe flipped the script on the happy song and added lyrics that go:
“I didn’t think that I would die today.
They smelled my bleeding wounds a mile away.
It won’t be long. They keep a steady pace.
The ocean floor will be my resting place.
Now I can faintly hear those sirens sing.
My life is hanging from the thinnest string, the thinnest string.
They move in packs. Now they’ve surrounded me.
Not one or two; it’s a whole family.”
Sikabwe wrote in the video’s description: “This is one of those videos where you go ‘This is too weird…’ then you make it anyway.”
