"Don't Get 2 Close (2 My Fantasy)" as written by and Michael Melchiondo Aaron Freeman....
Don't quiver little boy, your daddy's with you now
It won't be long anyhow
It's just around the corner
The destiny that I embrace with you

Don't get too close to my fantasy
Don't be afraid to clutch the hand of your creator
Stare into the lion's eyes and if you taste the candy
You'll get to the surprise

Stay calm little dreamer and drift off into dreams
The gentle kiss of night is better than it seems
It's just around the corner
Close your eyes and soon you'll be with me

Don't get too close to my fantasy
Don't be afraid to clutch the hand of your creator
Stare into the lion's eyes and if you taste the candy
You'll get to the surprise
You'll get to the surprise
You'll get to the surprise

    General CommentI'm disturbed by the lack of comments on most Ween songs! Ween's the greatest band ever. I just had to point that out. (I picked "Don't Get 2 Close" cause that's the song that introduced me to Ween... Remember them in IT'S PAT? Ha!)

    General CommentI think it might be about a dad who's already died speaking to his dying child, saying that they'll soon be together again.

    General CommentI agree with Micro on this one, especially in the second verse it seems more like accepting death than molestation

    General CommentWhoever is insisting that this song is about molestation needs to have their head checked and is clearly projecting. Ween may have some fucked up songs, but that would be going too far, even for them. As mentioned in a few sensible comments, it is more likely about a child who is approaching death in his sleep and is being greeted by his father (or perhaps even Jesus) who has already died. "Creator" = God. Trying to read more into the lyrics than that is on you.

    General CommentFrom Ween.net FAQs:
    Is "Don't Get 2 Close 2 My Fantasy" really about child molestation?
    It has a perverted side but it is an homage to David Bowie Ziggy Stardust era music and lyrics. Scott Lowe provides harmony vocals. - See more at: ween.net/…

    General Commentnah - I don't think its incest. last verse has to be about death - aw hell, I'm gonna say its about a father comforting his dying child. ??? after all this is a band that made a little ditty about spinal meningitis. "It really hurts mommy. Am I gonna see jesus?"

    General Commentit's incest. well, not necessarily incest. "daddy" could be a desired pet name, but it's definitely about child molestation.

    I read on allmusic that this song sort of makes fun of power ballads/power metal/etc., and to me it makes enough sense. there's kind of a bombastic, grandiose tone throughout the song.

    General CommentI definitely thought of child molestation when I thought about this song. "Creator" through might indicate that it's his father. I like that comment by yall. It makes sense, especially this song came out at the end of the power ballad era (1992).

    General CommentHmm... It might be about incest. You can never tell with Ween. One thing's for sure though, it's dang catchy.
