    Short-term thinkers are rewarded with reelection, while those who dare to take seriously our responsibility to future generations commonly find themselves out of office.

    Lyrics - http://lyrics.wikia.com/wiki/Roy_Har...ves_The_Crease

    "When the moment comes and the gathering stands and the clock turns back to reflect
    On the years of grace as those footsteps trace for the last time out of the act
    Well this way of life's recollection, the hallowed strip in the haze
    The fabled men and the noonday sun are much more than just yarns of their days"

    I received my Roy Harper CDs from Ireland already. Wow, that was some fast service! Can't wait to dig into the music.
