Mercury dances in its skyscraper cell, rising and falling like rhapsody
And I see winter's broken like lace, in time for a celebration

Thaw wails inside the walls and laughs in the corners, delighting in its evident victory
Till I feel springtime counting its days of flaunting a novel sensation

Like it's leaving, leaving behind the weight vying for yesteryear
Leaving promises in its wake, whispering, my love, you're still here

Hold on to your memories of sundogs and rainbows, as time writes a premature eulogy
And I feel summertime passing in haste, like running out of patience

Quilted with knit and umbrellas and scarfs and a mild understanding of irony
I feel autumn leaving the race, all done with the exhilaration

It's leaving, leaving behind the weight vying for yesteryear
Leaving promises in its wake, whispering, my love, you're still here

Mercury dances in its skyscraper cell, rising and falling in harmony
And I feel winter stealing my days, to herald another creation

    My InterpretationThe passing of the four seasons and "You're still here", probably refers to a long-lasting relationship and how he's happy that they've stayed together through the years.

    Mercury "dancing in its skyscraper cell" is probably a metaphor for a thermometer, "rising and falling" as the seasons change. Interesting way to say it ;)
