"Step" as written by and Mimi J. Parker George Alan Sparhawk....
And levee's breaking
Feel it shaking like the dead
All the kids are sleeping
Silent dreams beneath their heads
Gonna wake up screaming
Little lights above your bed

Hey
Keep an eye on what you say
You think the words just walk away
But they creep in through my breath
Sinking deep into my my step
My step

Ah ah ah (etc)

I'm the walrus darling
No-one ever knows my name
You are the chorus sweet thing
Never sing that song again

Hey
Keep an eye on what you say
You think the words just walk away
But they creep in through my breath
Sinking deep into my my step
My step
My step
My step (etc)

    General Commentthe world is coming to an end. the sky will crack and all the innocence will wash away. the song of life has been silenced and without the voice to breath life into our sorry souls, we will all drown in our sins.
    so cheers to the happy people!
    and a big, swollen middle finger to all who refuse to listen to the voice of the universe.

    and that is how the song makes me feel.

    My InterpretationI think it's about a fight. I envisage a couple, and these words are from the viewpoint of the passive player. And they're just stewing on what has been said, knowing that all the hurt and anger is building inside of them.

    First verse - could be referring to their children and how they seem to be oblivious to the war that is going on in their parents' relationship.

    Chorus is pretty self explanatory - everything the other person says sticks around and is affecting all parts of this person's life.

    "I'm the walrus darling
    No-one ever knows my name"

    The term 'darling' sounds affectionate, yet sarcastic. As if they are singing it to their partner but they're actually quite pissed off.

    "You are the chorus sweet thing
    Never sing that song again"

    This is like a threat to the partner; like you'd better stop soon or else.

    Plus the general angsty sorta feel to the song.


    Just my interpretation.
