Lyrics:Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin' high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on
flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
"We'll meet on edges, soon," said I
Proud 'neath
heated brow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that
now.

Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
"Rip down all hate," I screamed
Lies that
life is black and white
Spoke from my skull. I dreamed
Romantic facts of
musketeers
Foundationed deep, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger
than that now.

Girls' faces formed the forward path
From phony jealousy
To
memorizing politics
Of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists
Unthought of,
though, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

A
self-ordained professor's tongue
Too serious to fool
Spouted out that liberty
Is just
equality in school
"Equality," I spoke the word
As if a wedding vow.
Ah, but I was so
much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

In a soldier's stance, I aimed my
hand
At the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not that I'd become my enemy
In the instant
that I preach
My pathway led by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow.
Ah, but I was
so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract
threats
Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to
protect
Good and bad, I define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow.
Ah, but I was
so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.
