13Th Century Boy - Lyrics by Fatima Mansions, The


Let the dark ages!

You don't live the way you should
You're not chaste or wise or good
Oh no, when you're human
I wait for you, my queen
I keep myself ready clean like my maker--against nature
I needn't worry about all the wars out there
The price of fish and all the ineffective hygiene

You are the reason why i've reached perfection
You are the reason why i try to tend this fertile void
I'm a 13th century boy

These are heroic times
So thumb your nose at years gone by
Be hardened...we're a legend
Now love keeps the country green
I know because i've seen the pictures
In this week's scriptures

All i know is that i feel you coming near
All you need know is that your [prophet elector] is waiting--chorus

You are the reason why i live forever
You are the reason why i learned to love the void
Oh, i'm a 13th century boy
Oh, i'm a new dark ages boy
I'm a 13th century boy
