TREAD SOFTLY

On the stormy, swirling sea
There you lie just for me
Your arms melt away
And your legs disappear
Your breasts seem to fade
Your head's lost in tears

In the zephyr from the west
There you lie just to rest
Your face disappears
You melt just like ice
I try to be good
I try to be nice

Please don't cry, you know I try
Please don't weep, you know I sleep
Tread softly upon the silken strands
Tread softly upon the desert sands

Say hello to the sun
Say hello to the stars
Say hello to good fun
Say hello to great Mars
