Fatima Mansions — 13Th Century Boy lyrics

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 prophatelector is waiting
You are the reason why i've reached perfection
You are the reason why i try to tend this fertile void
And i'm a 13th century boy
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 gone ages boy
I'm a 13th century boy
