I was lost and tossed on a misty morning
By a drunken sailor
And the genie in the bottle let me down

I was raised on Cain in the name of the father
And the mother and the brother
And the other who was never even 'round

On a windswept coast with the black knight falling
I was heard to be calling
That my ship and all its crew were going down

As the sun ran slowly by a childhood rivulet
A jeweled king summoned me
Commanding that I run and tell the town

Saw you, saw me, run quickly now
Run and hide away
Run and hide today

In a room in a castle full of faceless lovers
I was cut and bleeding
And the image in the mirror struck me down

I was chased and beaten
By a well-drilled team of little men breathing colors
And abandoned in a coffin in the ground

As a pale young virgin made a meal of a martyr
She was hailed as holy by the only ones
Who stood and held their ground

When a bright Mona Lisa
With the eyes of a tiger read a new proclamation
I was stricken from her list and never found

Saw you, saw me, run quickly now
Run and hide away
Run and hide today

Seems they come and go so quickly
Disappear like sunlight in the evening
And they may not ever be explained

Seems like they come and go so quickly
Disappearin' in the air like a breath of wind
And they may not ever be explained

And I woke up thinkin' I was dyin'
If you find one hang on with all you got
Way down deep, deep in your soul
For it may not ever come again

And I woke up crying like a baby
Hey yay yay yay yay yay yay, where they're gone
No, they may not ever be explained

And I woke up thinkin' why to
If you find one hang on with everything you got
Down deep there in your soul
No, they may not ever be explained
And I woke up crying like a baby

Seems like they come and go so quickly
Disappear like sunlight in the evening
And they may not ever be explained
And I woke up thinkin' I was dying
