(Knowledge is power)

Sometimes it gets so hard to listen
Hard for me to use my eyes
And all around the gold is glistening
Making sure it keeps me down to size

I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know a thing about evil
Only wanna know about love

(Knowledge is power)

I'm waitin' for the planes to tumble
Waitin' for the towns to fall
I'm waitin' for the cities to crumble
Waitin' till I see you crawl

I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know a thing about evil
Only wanna know about love

I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love

And yes it's getting hard to listen
Hard for me to use my eyes
And all around the gold is glistening
Making sure it keeps us hyp-n-o-tized

I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know a thing about evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know a thing about evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love...

    General CommentWhy oh why are there no comments yet? To me, this is a gorgeous and, frankly, breathtaking cover of the old John Martyn song. Orton's beautiful vocals weave perfectly with the lyrics and the instumentals, and the backup singer comes in at just the right time...it's magic....
    But if none of you care enough about magic to leave a measly comment, that's just fine with me. Screw it. >:[
    (Please excuse this comment, the author is tired and cranky and will be sent to bed right now. Promise.)
