"If you see a comet
In the corner of the sky tonight
Maybe you can catch it
And keep it secret ‘til the end of time”

Imagination makes a hell of a scientific tool.
The Grand Theatre at Ephesus, Turkey.

I thought this was a painting. I was waiting for the Ernst Koerner tag or something. This is amazing.
This is a great piece for anyone who A) knows who The Sisters of Mercy are; B) at least thinks they might have heard “This Corrosion” before; C) likes 80s music. Seriously, this is a very philosophical look at the social role of music at this point in time. Go read it.

All that you touch
And all that you see
All that you taste
All you feel
And all that you love
And all that you hate
All you distrust
All you save
And all that you give
And all that you deal
And all that you buy
Beg, borrow or steal
And all you create
And all you destroy
And all that you do
And all that you say
And all that you eat
And everyone you meet
And all that you slight
And everyone you fight
And all that is now
And all that is gone
And all that’s to come
And everything under the sun is in tune
But the sun is eclipsed by the moon
‘There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it’s all dark.’
