Sat in a branch of Diana’s tree I kiss the sky and it falls to me
To tell you that in all honesty
I love the taste of you, Mercury

With you I see horses and strange little tulips
I feel hands on my face and mermaids and foolish
Old stars that are broken and ready to die
Bursting back into life with the force of my sigh.

But the crystals prick me and the branches wobble
And those hands reach out while my brain tries to cobble
Some truth from the chaos or a lie to lift me
To escape the grip of my troubled mercury.

A fashionable word with a fractional girl
In a backstreet when my toes start to curl
As the pigs get their kicks in the mud with their sticks
Fighting dirty mechanics with screwdriver dicks.

You have the wings,
But I’ll have the flight.
You have the dark, but I have the night.
You have the song, but I have the symphony
You try to get close, but you can’t touch me mercury.

Tell your soul we're planning a vacation
Every lift's got a button to the basement

Take a trip. Push the button to the basement.
It's time to take the ultimate vacation.
