Eternal Life

Driving in crazy traffic this morning, blaring this very familiar track, I tuned into the lyrics for the first time:

ETERNAL LIFE
by Jeff Buckley

Eternal Life is now on my trail
Got my red glitter coffin, man, just need one last nail
While all these ugly gentlemen play out their foolish games
There's a flaming red horizon that screams our names

And as your fantasies are broken in two
Did you really think this bloody road would
Pave the way for you?
You better turn around
And blow your kiss hello to life eternal, angel

Racist everyman, what have you done?
Man, you've made a killer of your unborn son...
Crown my fear your king at the point of a gun
All I want to do is love everyone...

And as your fantasies are broken in two
Did you really think this bloody road would
Pave the way for you?
You better turn around
And blow your kiss hello to life eternal....

There's no time for hatred, only questions
What is love, where is happiness, what is life, where is peace?
When will I find the strength to bring me release?

And tell me where is the love in what your prophet has said?
Man, it sounds to me just like a prison for the walking dead
And I've get a message for you and your twisted hell
You better turn around
And blow your kiss goodbye to life eternal, angel...

It took me a little while to actually absorb the lyrics to that song as well. It is amazing how it applies in so many instances, at least in my own life.

Prescience from beyond the grave
I tuned into the verse that I put in bold type and marvelled that he wrote and recorded those words prior to 11 September 2001.
