Power And Glory Part II - Lou Reed

I was visited by the power and the glory

 

I was visited by a majestic hymn

 

Great bolts of lightning lighting up the sky

Electricity flowing through my veins

 

I was captured by a larger moment

I was seized by divinitys hot breath

 

Gorged like a lion on experience

 

Powerful from life

 

I wanted all of it, all of it

 

All of it, not some of it

 

All of it, all of it

Not just some of it, but all of it

 

I saw a man turn into a bird

I saw a bird turn into a tiger

 

I saw a man hang from a cliff by the tips of his toes

In the jungles of the amazon

 

I saw a man put a redhot needle through his eye

Turn into a crow and fly through the trees

 

Swallow hot coals and breathe out flames

And I wanted this to happen to me

 

Oh, I wanted this to happen to me

 

I wanted all of it, all of it

 

All of it, not some of it

 

All of it, all of it

 

Not just some of it, but all of it

 

Cancer reduce him to dust

We saw the moon vanish into his pocket

We saw the stars disappear from sight

 

We saw him walk across water into the sun

While bathed in eternal light

 

We spewed out questions waiting for answers

 

Creating legends, religions and myths

 

Books, stories, movies and plays

 

All trying to explain this

 

I wanted all of it, all of it

 

All of it, not some of it

 

All of it, all of it

Not just some of it, but all of it

 

I saw a great man turn into a little child

 

The cancer reduce him to dust

 

His voice growing weak as he fought for his life

With a bravery stronger than lust

 

I saw isotopes introduced into his lungs

Trying to stop the cancerous spread

And it made me think of leda and the swan

And gold being made from lead

 

The same power that burned hiroshima

 

Causing three legged babies and death

 

Shrunk to the size of a nickel

 

To help him regain his breath

 

And I was struck by the power and the glory

 

And I was visited by a majestic him

 

Great bolts of lightning shooting up his veins

As the radiation flowed through him

 

He wanted all of it, all of it

All of it, not just some of it

 

All of it, all of it

Not some of it, but all of it
