Covalent Bonds

As the Vorshtein once said
From rivers to deltas to oceans of lead,
The are levees leveled
The dams are down
And I'm drowning in color
And the beautiful sound
In the fragrance that's found
In sweet fields abound.
Merrily, merrily,
Rain falls down.

And every bend in the sky
Wrings out tears to dry her eyes
It's wonderful...
Yes, yes,
It's marvelous...
Less, less,
Light in the sky
The crescent of the moon
Pulling in waters
And making more room.

This is the floor on which we dance.
Why ask for more?
This is your chance.
But hurry,
Please hurry.
My sight's getting blurry
And night's winter flurry
Will be sure to bury ourselves in the waves
And seaweed will dress our waterlogged graves.

But for now you can't tell me that this is a crime,
For all the worlds tears are now mixing with mine...
This soft ticking bomb puts a date on the line
And the lush downpour sloughs the callus of time.
