"Beautiful Ghost/Introduction to Songs of Experience" as written by Adam Clayton, Dave Evans, Paul David Hewson, Larry Mullen and William Blake....
Hear the voice of the Bard
Who present, past, and future, sees
Whose ears have heard
The Holy Word
That walk'd among the ancient trees

Calling the lapsed soul
And weeping in the evening dew
That might control
The starry pole
And fallen, fallen light renew

'O Earth, O Earth, return
Arise from out the dewy grass
Night is worn
And the morn
Rises from the slumbrous mass

Turn away no more
Why wilt thou turn away
The starry floor
The watery shore
Is given thee till the break of day
Till the break of day

Till the break of day
Till the break of day
Till the break of day

    General CommentRead William Blake's "Songs of Experience." The lyrics are the introduction to them. And for good measure enjoy Blake's "Songs of Innocence, as I believe they are meant to be read together.

    Heavy stuff, but beautiful.
