lyrics

Youth Is Not For Pleasure…(But To Be Brave)

Youth is not for pleasure…but to be brave
Youth is not for pleasure…but to be brave

This never ending infatuation
this morbid saint
This indoctrinated angel
clips her wings in haste

Like memories divided
by syncopated thirst
Ashes on the water
Books thrown into the fire
Visions far beyond our grasp to threaten and inspire
It’s an illusion
It’s an illusion…it’s an illusion

Youth is not for pleasure…but to be brave
Youth is not for pleasure…but to be brave

Hoisted up to serve my time
flapping in the wind
Trapped between the innocence
and wanting still to win, it’s an illusion

It’s an illusion, grounded in the air
It’s an illusion, interpretative stares
It’s an illusion, three-dimensional recluse
Another captive beast
dreams of getting loose

Wake up! Wake up!
You’ve got to set her free
Wake up! Wake up!
Or they’ll be closing the cage on me

Ohhhhhh
Youth is not for pleasure…but to be brave
Youth!
Youth is not for pleasure…but to be brave
Youth!
Youth is not for pleasure …but to be brave
...but to be brave
Youth is not for pleasure…but to be brave
...but to be brave

Melody and Lyrics: Toni Zeto 5/12/1984
Music: Jerome Faulkner-Jessie Jacobson-Brian Bielski 4/15/83 + 6/4/83
