King Apathy III    (McGuinn)

Grease collecting stained-glass rubies
Pillowed gently on a strand
Bearing looks of frenzied blankness
Slowing down their freebie king

Middleclass suburban children
wearing costumes that reveal
Blindly follow recent pipers
with their mystical appeal
go now

So I'm leavin' for the country to try and rest my head
Cause if I hang around this scene too long you know babe I'll be dead

Color changes superficial
Apathy still a king
Liberal reactonaries
never feeling anything
go now

The Byrds   "Dr.Byrds And Mr.Hyde"  
Columbia Records 1968
