God Is Alive, Magic Is Afoot (Leonard Cohen | Buffy St Marie)

... Though laws were carved in marble, they could not shelter men.
Though altars built in parliaments, they could not order men.
Police arrested magic, and magic went with them ... mmmm ...
for magic loves the hungry.

But magic would not tarry; it moves from arm to arm.
It would not stay with them. Magic is afoot: it cannot come to harm
It rests in an empty palm; it spawns in an empty mind.
But magic is no instrument: magic is the end
Many men drove magic but magic stayed behind
Many strong men lied; they only passed through magic and out the other side
Many weak men lied ...
