My Blakean Year

This song is by Patti Smith and appears on the album Trampin' (2004).

In my Blakean year
I was so disposed
Toward a mission yet unclear
Advancing pole by pole

Fortune breathed into my ear
Mouthed a simple ode
One road is paved in gold
One road is just a road

In my Blakean year
Such a woeful schism
The pain of our existence
Was not as I envisioned

Boots that trudged from track to track
Worn down to the sole
One road is paved in gold
One road is just a road

Boots that tramped from track to track
Worn down to the sole
One road was paved in gold
One road was just a road

In my Blakean year
Temptation but a hiss
Just a shallow spear
Robed in cowardice

Brace yourself for bitter flack
For a life sublime
A labyrinth of riches
Never shall unwind
The threads that bind the pilgrim's sack
Are stitched into the Blakean back

So throw off your stupid cloak
Embrace all that you fear
For joy shall conquer all despair
In my Blakean year

So throw off your stupid cloak
Embrace all that you fear
For joy shall conquer all despair
In my Blakean year
