Paul Simon – “Love is Eternal Sacred Light”

By now you can tell I’m a big fan of the new Paul Simon album, and I hope you’ve gotten the chance to hear it from start to finish. The other day I was simply blown away by these lyrics…it’s just so amazing to me that out of his pen, comes this seriously powerful imagery:

“Earth becomes a farm
Farmer takes a wife
Wife becomes a river
and the giver of life
Man becomes machine
Oil runs down his face
Machine becomes a man
with a bomb in the marketplace”

Paul Simon
