The Flowers In Your Hair Meant Nothing

This song was created for Game of Bands round 258 : "Nostalgia"

Lyrics:

As sure as the world turns, I feel
The need to disappear into my head
Wistfully flicking through my memories
Of times I’d never seen
Bare chested, full-throated
Love and peace, for all to be free
But I look around and see the dream has died
How did today come to be?

Behind the ballad lurked a darkness
Misogyny mystified
Flowers in her hair, no consent to bear
Eviscerated innocence
Nostalgia washes out defence
Do you really wish for violence?
The veneer peels back, skin-deep
See the heart as cruel as can be
The dying delight in delusion
Maladies without meaning

Lies of liberation
The blood of panthers
Waters the earth

The truth of the fantasy
Was the superficiality
Dying delight in delusion
The truth of the fantasy
Was the superficiality
The dying delight in delusion
Maladies without meaning
[Exit]
