    "Bath" Lyrics

    The Divine Comedy

    Time, like an ever-rolling stream, bears all its sons away;
    They fly, forgotten, as a dream dies at the op'ning day.

    It's time for a scrub
    So through clouds of steam
    To a cracked and faded cream
    Bath-tub wanders frail
    Aphrodite, so pale
    Pink and white
    She is naked as sin
    Wearing nothing but a grin

    And a pin in her hair
    Will she be drowned?
    With her hair tied behind
    Shoulders back
    And head inclined
    To the sound of music
    Playing above
    Bathing her in love
    But darkness and fear
    Will disappear like the soap
    When she opens her eyes.

    She throws back her dormer windows
    Morning light shows Ophelia raised
    From her watery grave in a brave new world.
