where y'all are

Leoanrd Cohen - Live at the Isle of Wight 1970 - I'm no devotee of the beloved field commander, but there are times when Leonard Cohen bounces the ball just right in the corner, where the floor of corniness and the wall of serenity meet, and that ball comes back fast and hits you square between the eyes. The spoken introduction here is one of those moments. He tells the weary masses who have been sitting drug addled in the rain at 4am to all light a match, "so I can see where y'all are" and yep, that works. (at 1:52 in this video)
