Great Leap Forward
I jumped up like Apollo Crash landed on my feet The sun shot like a laser through my brain A little death had woken up And put a curse on me But I knew that that I'd be coming back again Inspiration, across the nation There's a poverty of expectation All I got to do was move ahead It's a blue sky It's a while cloud It's a flame It's a blue sky White cloud Burning flame I shot back to the mirror There was nothing left to see But a phantom with his heartbeat deep inside I could feel the dust of ages They were blowing back at me But I knew that I was born to get it right Everybody take the great leap forward Everybody knows the mysteries at hand If you've been praying all those sweet days for this Don't you know there is a whole different plan Sometimes I hear the madman calling He talks about some dark eternal place I've been waiting all my lifetime for this moment And now I've got to find some other ways One touch ignites this eagle One kiss for heavens view I need the flame so I can feel alive You can tell my little brother No requiem for me I knew that I was born to make this flight Inspiration across the nation There's a poverty of expectation All I got to do was move ahead
