the great event - lyrics by leonard cohen

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 reverse 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
