Crown of Creation Lyrics - Jefferson Airplane

Review The Song (4)

You are the Crown of Creation
You are the Crown of Creation
and you've got no place to go.

Soon you'll attain the stability you strive for
in the only way that it's granted
in a place among the fossils of our time.

In loyalty to their kind
they cannot tolerate our minds.
In loyalty to our kind
we cannot tolerate their obstruction.

Life is Change
How it differs from the rocks
I've seen their ways too often for my liking
New worlds to gain
My life is to survive
and be alive
for you.

some but all lyrics lifted from Whyndam | Reviewer: Keith Geddes | 7/21/10

Song thought to refer to Hubert Humphrey, Democrat preidential Candidate 1968. Airplane had been close to Robert Kennedy and had been up to his home outside Washington and had played a charity gig at his request. Reference to Kennedy's dog, Brumus, in Blows Against the Empire and picture of Brumus inside sleeve of C of C

Lifted With Permission | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/26/08

It is well known that yes, the lyrics were lifted virtually if not ad verbatim from Wyndham's "The Chrysalids" (1955), (AKA Rebirth in the USA) and put to music. This was done with Wyndham's knowledge and permission.

not exactly verbatim.... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/5/07

but definitely a striking similarity.
Also known as "The Chrysalids" by John Wyndham(published 1955)

J.A> did nopt write the words to the song | Reviewer: Meryl | 5/25/07

the 'lyrics to the song" are not written by the Jefferson Airplane but instead were lifted, verbatim, from the Sci Fi Book REBIRTH and simply put to music
