Oh the days, oh the days
They are reflected in my face
I had turned another the page
And I found I'd lost my place

I had dreamed, I had dreamed
But now I've got no vision
In my hand I hold a mace
And with my voice I stir derision

Oh the times, oh the times
How can a man go on and live
I'm about to turn to dust
And scrape right by the sieve

Oh my head, oh my head
It's a heavy lot to bear
Still I climb up ever higher
Don't wanna fall down there

Sit me down, sit me down
Sit me down in the wishing chair

Knew a king, knew a king
He said name was Jimmy Christ
He swung his door open wide
On what would be his biggest heist

"Come with me, come with me
And I will make your pain all stop"
I became his supplicant
But then heard a shoe drop
