Blue-eyed Boy

From feline to canine
For Abel, go to Cain
From canine to feline
And then crawling back again

There are always two sides
One to rise and one to fall
Or three, or four, or five
Until there are no sides at all

Blue-eyed boy is everyman
Blue-eyed boy is chameleon
Everyone loves blue-eyed boy
Blue-eyed boy is close at hand

Blue-eyed boy is everyman
Blue-eyed boy is circumstance
Everyone loves blue-eyed boy
Blue-eyed boy is hollow man
Who does the best he can

So much to remember
Too much to wash away
The touch of an ember
Shot down again flames

There’s got to be another way of slowing down time
Than flying backwards around the world
Hang on and keep the wolves at bay, help is on its way
