CAPTIVES OF THE FLAME

Written & Composed by Michael Woodhead
Copyright © 1970, 2017

I know it seems a shame
To discredit all our fame
You know we're not to blame
We are the captives of the flame

And though they still proclaim
That it all was such a game
You know they can't explain
Why we're the captives of the flame

Though everyday people see
That we would like to be free
Still they only give apologies
To everyone we displease

And now you know they claim
That our visions overcame
That's why we all became
The captives of the flame

Though everyday people see
That we would like to be free
Still they only give apologies
To everyone we displease

Title inspired by Samuel R Delany's novel:-
