 Crimson flames tied through my ears
  6  -6   -6  -6  -6  6    6
 Rollin' high and mighty traps
    7     7    7   -6  -6  6   6
 Pounced with fire on flaming roads
  6 -6 -6 6 6 6  5  -4
 Using ideas- as my maps

 Proud 'neath heated brow.

 Ah, but I was so much older then, 
 -5  -5  5    -4   4    4
 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.
