D       Bm          F#m                       G         A      D
Crimson flames tied through my ears, rollin' high and mighty traps
          Bm      F#m                  G           A
Countless fire on flaming roads, using ideas as my maps
 
       Bm             F#m            G                   A
"We'll meet on edges, soon," said I, proud 'neath heated brow.
        D             G     D.        G       A         D
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.
 
D            Bm        F#m               G        A        D
Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth,"rip down all hate," I screamed
 
          Bm      F#m              G                      A
Lies that life is black and white, spoke from my skull, I dreamed
 
Bm                F#m         G                  A
Romantic facts of musketeers,foundationed deep, somehow.
        D             G     D.        G       A         D
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.
 
     D         Bm        F#m                  G       A        D
In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand,at the mongrel dogs who teach
                 Bm            F#m          G              A
Fearing not that I'd become my enemy,in the instant that I preach
   Bm                F#m          G                    A
My pathway led by confusion boats,mutiny from stern to bow.
        D             G     D.        G       A         D
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.

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

                  Crimson flames tied through my ears
Throwin' high and mighty traps
Countless fire and 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
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.

Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now

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.
