Gene Clark: Zenmaster

Steve Burgess, Dark Star, 1976

IN THE END they traded their tired wings
For the resignation that living brings
And exchanged love's bright and fragile glow
For the glitter and the rouge
And in a moment they were swept
Before the deluge...
– Jackson Browne: 'Before The Deluge'
