The Light (Ginger & Metaphysics) Lyrics

Artist: Jefferson Starship
Album: Deep Space / Virgin Sky

The Light

I want to go to the stars
I want to go to the stars
I want to go to the morning star

She awoke with a start from a dream of stars
Let's talk metaphysics she sighed in her BVD's
She didn't need comfort, just some verbal intercourse
A dance around the intelligence tree

Where was the light before it came here?
Who held the power to begin the spin?
What is in store? What am I here for?
Is it love? Is it war? Is there more?

There she stands at my mind again
The age of poetry had begun

Wasn't that a time for the light?
Wasn't that a time to shake the foundations?
Wasn't that a time for love?
Go out and stuff the universe into your eyes

Out together on the streets
At the barricade in the streets
What a scintillating bitch with her eyes on the light
"Let's go to hell together" in her eyes

Why do we remember the past and not the future?
What's inside a black hole? What is the nature of the universe?
How does it work? Which way is west in space?
Is there sex in heaven? Is it the best?

Connect me with my intellect she sighed
You can's hide the sexual drive

Friction makes sparks
Sparks make fire
Fire make heat and the heat will endure
'til the
Animal comes with ferocity
Not unlike
You and me
In the throes of poetry

A lover's eye can stare and eagle blind
A lover's ear can hear the lowest sound
A lover's lips taste like a dream
I know you like it on top
Don't stop

Wasn't that a time for the light?
Wasn't that a time to shake the foundations?
Wasn't that a time for love and danger?
Go out and stuff the universe into your eyes

The only answer that I have found
Aabove the sky or below the ground
Is that there are no answers
There never were any answers
There will never be any answers
And as Gertrude Stein said, "That's the answer."

I am not afraid of the future
I am not afraid of ideas
I am not afraid to shake the foundation
Of the wonder years.

These are visions of tomorrow
These are visions of the strength of ideas
Like matter and energy ideas shape the sky
Of the future years

In my imaginary world there are no hungry children
In my world, love is true
In my world teachers get paid more than baseball players
in my world, there is you . . . But
In the real world people get hungry
In the real world people need love
In the real world people need light and hope and ideas and food
And love and a soothing human touch.

Just like they're
Standing in the presence of God
Standing in the halls of imagination
Every boy a lion, every girl a tiger
It just takes a moment to step through the fire
Adventure beckons from above
The age of poetry begins again, with love

Isn't this a time for the light
Isn't this a time to shake the foundation
Isn't this a time for love and danger
Go out and stuff the universe into your . . .
Isn't this a time for the light
Isn't this a time to shake the foundation
I know you like it on top, don't stop
Isn't this a time for the light

I am not afraid of the future
