The Great Event Lyrics
It's going to happen very soon. The great event which will end the horror. Which will end the sorrow. Next tuesday, when the sun goes down, I will play the moonlight sonata backwards. This will
Se the effects of the world's mad plunge into suffering, for the last 200 million years. What a lovely night that would be. What a sigh of relief, as the senile robins become bright red again, and the retired nightingales, pick up their dusty tails, and assert the majesty of creation!
