Blue Oyster Cult - Golden Age Of Leather Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Raise your can of beer on high
  • And seal your fate forever
  • Our best years have past us by
  • The golden age of leather
  • This was the night not long to come
  • In the year of our lord a.d.
  • Where in a desert way-house poised on the brink of eternity
  • Four and ninety studded horsemen closed the knot of honor
  • As only drunken soldiers can
  • And passed from man to man
  • A wanton child to dead to care
  • That each would find his pleasure as he might
  • For this fantastic night was billed
  • As nothing less than the end of an age
  • A last crusade
  • A final outrage
  • In this day of flaccid plumage
  • And there was worn no cloth but leather
  • Made supple by years of stinging cinders
  • And here were seen the scars of age
  • For age had been the common call for one last night together
  • Dawn colored the sky......the ritual ceased
  • Some had died.............they were buried with their bikes
  • Each grabbed a rag........from a man with a sack
  • Torn strips of color......the red and the black
  • I cam here willingly
  • And I will go down valiantly
  • We made a vow
  • To give it all we had to give
  • We made a vow
  • To die as we had lived
  • They flew the colors they began to fight
  • They flailed at each other like bugs at a light
  • Bodies and bikes beyond repair
  • Smell of oil and gas in the air
  • Then the wind whipped the desert with a giant hand
  • And the humans and the harleys caught the shifting sand
  • The old ranger weathered the storm
  • And he topped the rise by the middle of morn
  • He saw rippled dunes
  • Calm and surreal
  • And a glint of a solitary shaft of chromium steel
  • Golden age...
