"Believe Me" as written by and Gary Dale Puckett....
Field of spears: Our creation
And for our crimes there be damnation
The blood of the past, it does bathe us
The fingers point to blame and claim us

And without love, we are lost
Believe me, we are lost
Without love, we are dust
Believe me, we are dust

Without love, we lose our souls
And mine had left long ago
The gods above and the gods below
Believe me, believe me

A child is skating on the ice
Like a child playing with a knife
The gods above and the gods below
Playing chess for her soul


With tears of sorrow, and tears of rage
They lower her into the grave
The gods above and the gods below
Playing catch with her soul

    My InterpretationOne possible interpretation is that the crime spoken of in the first verse, was something so small, as lettin the child skate on the ice of a lake that wasn't thick enough, "like a child playing with a knife" meaning that she's in danger.
    The ice breaks and she drowns, so with tears of sorrow and rage they lower her into her grave..

    the thin ice in turn can be anything that's not safe, like late night television, if she's too young.
