Lyrics:

(C G6 Am F)

wake up in the morning
there's a brand new day ahead
the sun is bright and the clouds smile down
and all your friends are dead

but the ocean is so friendly
the bright blue diamond stratosphere
and you know you're gonna have buckets of fun
as soon as you can get out of here

(G F C G6)

running from skipper plumbthroat
last night he murdered all your friends
hiding from skipper plumbthroat
you gotta run from your end

(C G6 Am F)

he came last night when you were all asleep
and you narrowly avoided death
you hid behind a rock while he got to work
now there's no buddies to tangle with

you swim and swim and swim some more
to find a new squiddle colony
and though there's hope you really can't help
but feel just a little bit lonely

(G F C G6)

running from skipper plumbthroat
why must squiddles meet such an end?
hiding from skipper plumbthroat
it's time to make new squiddle friends

(E F C G)

squiddles are social creatures
squiddles need friends
even when they have squiddle fights
they always make amends

squiddles are peaceful plushes
squiddles would never hurt you
they tangle you up in a big friendship ball
oooooooooooooooooo

(G F C G6)

running from skipper plumbthroat
why must squiddles meet such an end?
hiding from skipper plumbthroat
it's time to make new squiddle friends

it's time to make new squiddle friends

Artist commentary:

Maya Kern:

well i really love the squiddles? and the squiddles album is one of my favorite albums.

but i think a lot of it is because i’m not super great at writing music on demand? like, i write music all the time, but only when inspiration hits. and since there was a deadline, i didn’t quite have that option. i had tried writing a very different song before that with… not great results. i mean, it’s not a bad song, but it’s very unspecific and was not a good homestuck song.

so then i just decided i would write something silly and the squiddle song came out! because silly, i can do
