Counting out time

Today is the 60th anniversary of V-J Day, which marked the end of
World War II. This got me thinking, and so I did a little homework (thanks, Wikipedia).

December 11, 1941 (US declares war on Germany) through May 8, 1945
(V-E Day) was 1,244 days.

December 7, 1941 (Pearl Harbor) through August 15, 1945 (V-J Day) was 1,347 days.

September 11, 2001 through August 15, 2005 (Today) is 1,434 days.

Are you referring to The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway lyric? It's been years since I heard that but I remember Gabriel's voice so clearly.
