    Lyrics

    I took a drug
    One hundred times stronger than acid
    I took a drug
    One thousand times stronger than aspirin

    (Fall asleep here, wake up somewhere)
    I took a drug
    The pain of my life disappeared
    (Fall asleep here, wake up somewhere)

    I took a drug
    I fell asleep fuzzy, woke up clear
    (Fall asleep there, wake up somewhere)
    I'm waking up here

    When I dream I see knights in white satin
    When I dream I get mistaken memories of medieval Manhattan

    Sleep is the name of the drug I took
    Sleep and nothing more
    Sleep is the tower of Babel
    Sleep is my Utopia

    Sleep is the place I feel safest in
    Wrapped up in a cotton cocoon
    In a topographical ocean
    On the dark side of the moon

    When I dream I see knights in white satin
    When I dream I get mistaken memories of medieval Manhattan

    And the world is upside down
    But my mind is turning on
    Milk is spilling from the murdered sun
    I see masturbating monks on 42nd Street

    Rats carry the plague to Chinatown
    Cathedrals in the well of an elevator shaft
    The water towers so many onion domes
    The channel 12 commercials all star Joan of Arc

    On Broadway a lamb is lying down
    Where have they gone, the snows of Villon?
    They are falling on Manhattan as rain

    Never wake me, boy
    If you wake me I'll die
    If you wake me you'll destroy this perfect world I see
    When I dream
    (Mistaken memories of medieval Manhattan)
    When I dream
