lyrics

He’d kill to get himself a job
To grease his elbows up
To wear his fingers down
To his honest bones

He’d die to get himself a name
To feel important once
To ease his aching heart
From staunch loneliness

He sees his future in the distant lands
He’s got a plan to ford past every river
Oh, Sir Perceval, if you ever get a moment to breathe
Close your eyes, just go to sleep

If I could be with you, I would be
When honeyed words drip from your lips
I can’t hear you when you speak softly
Oh my, what a dreamy guy

And yet, for all that he has planned
For every promise made
For all the debt he’s built
He still drags his feet

He says he hasn’t given up
He hasn’t had it fair
He hasn’t made the sin yet of
Standing still too long

He sees our kingdom in the distant land
He’s got a plan to conquer every mountain
Oh, Sir Perceval, if you ever get a moment to rest
Close your eyes, if you think it best

If I could be with you, I would be
When honeyed words drip from your lips
I can’t hear you when you speak softly
Oh my, what a dreamy guy

Fa la la

He sees our kingdom in the distant land
He’s got a plan to conquer every mountain
Oh, Sir Perceval, if you ever get a moment to breathe
Close your eyes, and go to sleep
Close your eyes, and go to sleep
Close your eyes, and go to sleep
