Deep in the wilderness
a winter forest scene
snow in the underbrush
snow in the evergreens
things have been frozen since
the last of the birds flew away
a land of frozen white
that is until today

Chorus 1
a comet comes back from the asteroid belt
you wait long enough, things start to melt
you might feel just the way that you felt
but sooner or late things begin to melt

starts microscopically
happens bit by bit
stand under ancient trees
slowly the water drips
where once the sun was cold
sunlight now falls like yellow gold
from a crucible of the old

Chorus 2
the only thing we have to fear is fear itself
so said Franklin Delano Roosevelt
you wait long enough, that fear will melt
sooner or later, things begin to melt
