Verse 1

I forgot who I was, what I stood for,

Until a lightning bolt sent straight from Thor

Cured me of my fierce dementia.

And this is my Resipiscentia.

Chorus

Now I'll talk about you only in past tenses.

I'm finally awake, I've come to my senses.

Your tourniquet

Was cutting off the blood flow from my brain.

And you can bet

I'll never ever turn to you again.

Verse 2

What a lesson, what an experience!

What a deep scar, what a resipiscence!

I'll be delivered from sorrow's firm hold.

You can die now, I'm taking back control.

Chorus

Now I'll talk about you only in past tenses.

I'm finally awake, I've come to my senses.

Your tourniquet

Was cutting off the blood flow from my brain.

And you can bet

I'll never ever turn to you again.

Bridge

Go on drift into the world where

Merry bloody skies are disguised as Roses.

Go on and burn my lone bridge down,

Then prey on me pretending to be Moses.

But I won't fall for it again.

Chorus

Now I'll talk about you only in past tenses.

I'm finally awake, I've come to my senses.

Your tourniquet

Was cutting off the blood flow from my brain.

And you can bet

I'll never ever turn to you again.
