Crimson flames tied through my ears

Rollin' high and mighty traps

Countless fire on flaming roads

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


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

Sisters fled by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow


Couplets muets  w/ mélodie


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
