lyrics

A random roach motel’s bedside table
Therein lies the key to my master plan
Brown and leather-bound, beside the Bible
Inscribed under the title it says, “Placed by The King of Salem”

I’m spreading the word, just like a Gideon
An Alchemist in the lull trying to turn leaden souls into gold

Coelho’s masterwork—Santiago’s fable
Left inside the nightstand, room after room
Before the unsuspecting eyes of mourning sleepers
Should they look inside they’ll find their dream is alive

I’m spreading the word, just like a Gideon
A word I’m hoping they’ll learn—and the word is inspiration

‘Cause I’m leading a legion
I’ll be the white feather catalyst calling them to unlock their desires
‘Cause when you follow your legend, all the universe conspires to attain it
All you need is a spark—an inspirational thought—for the flame of fulfillment to start

Because the world is brimming full of sullen wanderers
Dragging their feet through their self-imposed exiles
Buckling under the weight of their growing fear to fail
Feeling gray and aged—and hard to wake

So I’m leading a legion
I’ll be the white feather catalyst calling them to unlock their desires
‘Cause when you follow your legend, all the universe conspires to attain it
All you need is a spark—an inspirational thought—for the flame of fulfillment to start

The years pass and I’m carrying out my plan
Then, I find myself in a room I’ve never been
I open the drawer to find the good book’s already inside

Someone’s spreading the word
Just like the King of Salem
Another Alchemist in the lull
Proving there’s a spark and the flame’s ‘bout to come

We’re spreading the word
Just like the King of Salem
A word we’re hoping you’ll learn
—And the word is inspiration
