Things have changed
You're much older now
You've got alligator teeth in your skin
But don't be short with me
For behind the smile
There's a quicksand that's tugging me in.

So let's walk through the garden together.
And let's smash all the flowers below.
And let's wade in a pond full of lilies
And let go.


So let's wade in the pond full of lilies.
And let's sink in a bed made of clay.
And let's look at the moon through the ripples.
And let's stay.
