My Back Pages

In the style of

The Byrds

Lyrics

crimson flames
tied through my years
flowing high
and mighty traps

countless fire
in flaming road
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 flanks
of musketeers
foundation deep
somehow
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
i'd become my enemy
in the instant
that i preach

sisters fled by
confusion boats
mutiny from
stern to bow
ah but i was
so much older then
i'm younger
than that now

ah but i was
so much older then
i'm younger
than that now

my guard stood hard
when abstract
threads
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
