I thought if I fought you,
In the open field,
Your bayonet would crack,
On my hot iron shield,
But you caught be running,
Now I'm at your command,
A servant to forces,
That I don't understand.

If you were the shepherd,
And I was the lamb,
And long was the journey,
And dark was the land,
Who would be following,
Who would be free,
Who would believe,
That the shepherd was me.

When that poet decides,
How the heroine dies,
He commits original sin,
When that last ray decays,
From the boardwalk parades,
Yours is the longest shadow to fade.

Oklahoma, don't bury your eyes,
Night receives morning,
Like death receives life,
Blown are the ashes,
Of the emperor's clothes,
All through the cornfields,
Planted in rows.

When that poet decides,
How the heroine dies,
He commits original sin,
When that last ray decays,
From the boardwalk parades,
Yours is the longest shadow to fade,
Yours is the longest shadow to fade.
