From Joe Iconis' musical, The Black Suits, Amphibian is a song about songwriting. It was a surprise hit in the show that audiences responded to with enthusiasm. William Finn advised Joe about not dwelling on the imperfect rhyme between the words amphibian and oblivion. Written in the voice of high school band members, the words fit the vocabulary of the characters singing them. Killer orchestrations by Charlie Rosen and vocal performance by Will Roland.
