So long my misery
I don't need you, you've only caused me grief
Forgive me if I fall asleep
I haven't slept in centuries

Daylight lives like a burden for me
So I escape the sins strewn about the streets
Beyond the ruins of my ancestry
Five pairs of pages of my disbelief

I rose from my moat like a ghost from a grave
Sunken in the salty eyes of the wandering into space
I was heading though the mists across the Golden Gate
All of my rebellions fall in to the falling fate

So long my misery
I don't need you, you have only caused me grief
Forgive me if I fall asleep
I haven't slept in centuries

Springtime came again and it caressed and fell
I flew past the numb lib nuns who never tell
The secrets of the sailors and their seven years spell
I will not fall, nor will my wings ever melt

If I could, I would wash all these wounds away
I would surround your room with a sinner mans grace
I would paint your portrait over everything mundane
More colorful than Easter Sunday

So long my misery
I don't need you, you have only caused me grief
Forgive me if I fall asleep
I haven't slept in centuries

Put me on a boat and lead my inhibitions at bay
My mind is spinning but I haven't much to say
I was running through the canyons
The echoes of your name
You were laughing at me like the sun laughs at the flames

Put me on a page in a book of beginnings
Let me scroll through old volumes of age and teachings
Let me revel all of these forgotten feelings
Lay me with the wretches in the arms of my queen

So long sweet misery
I don't need you, you've only caused me grief
Forgive me if I fall asleep
I haven't slept in centuries

So long sweet misery
I don't need you, you've only caused me grief
Forgive me if I fall asleep
I haven't slept in centuries
No, I haven't slept in centuries
I haven't slept in centuries
