Lyric of the Week: RETURN OF THE REBEL

The angry young man is on the loose again

You thought you saw the last of him but he’s far from his end

They put him away for awhile but now he’s back

So the world ought to watch out ‘cause now he’s primed for attack

He’s on the side of right but he’s up against it

He’s looking for justice and he’s ready to defend it

His trust was betrayed and his heart has been broken

If they close the door in his face he’ll just smash it open


It’s the Return Of The Rebel

Ready to punch the first guy who gets on his nerves

It’s the Return Of The Rebel

Gonna strike back at society just like it deserves


His hair is long and his eyes are wild

His mode of dress and manners are anything but mild

He walks the tightrope and he’s aware of the danger

But he don’t care if to be strange is to be a stranger


It’s the Return Of The Rebel

He won’t trust anyone till he’s found out the truth

It’s the Return Of The Rebel

He’s getting older but still burning with the fire of youth


It’s the Return Of The Rebel

He’s been watching and he’s seen it all

It’s the Return Of The Rebel

He’s gonna break the bonds that hold him in thrall

It’s the Return Of The Rebel

Armed with blues and heavy metal

It’s the Return Of The Rebel

Nothing will hold him back no more

The angry young man is on the loose again / You thought you saw the last of him but he’s far from his end.

I wrote this one while I was still in the army, looking forward to the day I'd be getting out and resuming my business of being pissed off at the world. I was remembering how I was full of fire back in my high school and post–high school years, and I was hoping that I still had it. When I finally did get discharged from the service, I had other things on my mind ... getting married, for one thing ... but after that marriage ended in divorce, I had different reasons to be pissed off at the world. No music yet but I imagine it as a Thin Lizzy–esque hard rock shuffle.
