I’ve been listening to this song by Paul Simon (yes, of Simon &¬†Garfunkel) for the past few days.

Maybe it’s the drums, maybe it’s the melody or the lyrics, but it just gets stuck in my head so easily. It sort of sounds like an anthem, as well. An anthem about childhood.

“Why deny the obvious child” that’s inside us all?

 

Militant drums beat steady and coarse.

Families take shelter.

Men in uniform with sword, gun, horse,

are all blown helter-skelter.

Though flames grow, and sky fills with lightning,

these terrors are not the real kind;

for nothing is more frightening

than the war within one’s mind.

This song makes me feel ALL the feels!
