Waiting for the spark from heaven to fall.
Waiting for the end, boys, waiting for the end.
A lot of people are waiting for Martin Luther King or Mahatma Gandhi to come back – but they are gone. We are it. It is up to us. It is up to you.
The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.
