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 ‘em to unlock their desires
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
All you need is a spark
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

‘Cause I’m leading a legion
I’ll be the white feather catalyst calling ‘em to unlock their desires
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
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
(All you need’s a spark)
Just like the King of Salem
(Inspirational thought)
Another Alchemist in the lull
(Turn leaden souls to gold)
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

And the word is inspiration
And the word is inspiration
