Waiting for the present
For the present to pass
Waiting for a dream
To last

You are not my lover
And you never will be
'Cause you've never done anything
To hurt me

There's a fire in the priory
And it's ruining this cocktail party
Yesterday I heard they cloned a baby
Now can I finally sleep with me?

Diving through the rising
Through the rising waves of night
Keeping a reflection of you
In hindsight

But in turning back the brackish waters
Will not reflect you
After you have turned the color black
Of death or something like that

There's a fire in the priory
And it's ruining this cocktail party
Yesterday I heard the plague is coming
Once again, to find me

There's a fire in the priory
And an ogre in the oval office
Once again we all will be so broken
Now can I finally sleep again?
