"There Is a Crack in Everything. That's How the Light Gets In."


Scientists just captured the flash of light that sparks when a sperm meets an egg For the first time ever, scientists have captured images of the flash of light that sparks at the very moment a human sperm cell makes contact with an egg. The phenomenon has been observed in animals before, but no one’s ever seen the spark of human conception. And what’s even more incredible is the fact that some eggs burn brighter than others, which is a direct indication of their ability to develop into a healthy embryo.KA-CHING

23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. -- Mark 9:23-25

We asked for signs
the signs were sent:
the birth betrayed
the marriage spent
Yeah the widowhood
of every single government --
signs for all to see.

I can't run no more
with that lawless crowd
while the killers in high places
say their prayers out loud.
But they've summoned, they've summoned up
a thundercloud
and they're going to hear from me.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.

God, how I hate this guy. Positively unlistenable. (spellcheck says that's not a word, but I'm using it anyway) Only people I ever knew who liked him were hippie chicks in college.

If you didn't listen, how do you know you hated him? I hope you didn't have a "hippie chick" problem in college?

Anyway, in regards to the upper frame, I am reminded of verses from the Scripture.

"In the beginning", "Then God said 'let there be light'; and there was light." Gen 1:1+3.

Amusing. One of the regulars at the crash pad had Cohen albums, and depending who was present, they could be played. I found them dull, but then again, I had had the Tom Wait's experience by that time, and was becoming a fan. "what?!?, no, no, no Tom Waits, no Zappa!", the hippie chicks would howl. I could always win them back with some CSNY and good hash, though.

I like the lyrics, but like Michel Legrand, he grates as a singer.
