Spirit slumbers in nature and awakens in mind
And finally recognizes yourself in time
Call us what you will but love made us like this
So what? Yeah, this whole world is just artifice

Take a good look at my good looks, then close your eyes
Keep the picture in your mind 'cause I'll be gone

One rainy day, I saw ya smilin'
You let me stay awhile and it was alright
Livin' in truth, not even tryin'
The pain is long gone and it's alright

Take a good look at my good looks, then close your eyes
Keep the picture in your mind 'cause I'll be gone
Hellishly transparent, utterly divine
Every little timeless gesture, a valentine

Memories hold onto illusion
'Cause we're just human and that's alright
(Take a good look at my good looks, baby)
Duality is so confusin', you think you're not dreamin'
Then you are babe!

There's no foundation, no final resting place
Only emptiness and hellish grace

Some rainy day I'll find ya cryin'
With love and animus sparklin' in your eyes
(Take a good look at my good looks, baby)
But you'll be the one to recognize me
You'll all get lost every time I fall
(Take a good look at my good looks, baby)

Nothing you say will scandalize me
You'll be alright, yeah, just like it is
(Take a good look at my good looks, baby)
It's alright, it's alright, yeah

Our noisy years will seem like moments
In a being of eternal tears
(Take a good look at my good looks, baby)
It seems so long to have romance
But I'll be here, babe and you're needed
And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
