Johnny Depp Spoken Word:

The ancient tradition that the world will be consumed in fire at the end of six thousand years is true;
As I have heard from hell.

The whole creation will be consumed, and appear infinite and holy, where as it now seems finite and corrupt.

This will come to pass by an improvement of sensual enjoyment.
If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.

    General CommentLike Neil Young just as much as anyone but the last lines are from the English poet, William Blake. Just to be clear.
