The Man With Fire In His Eyes

There is a man with fire in his eyes.

How could anyone be sad when he’s around?

How could anyone despair or even despise?

There is a voice in your head that won’t say yes,

Won’t let you walk without turning around.

But it never seems to see the fire in your eyes.

Look to the sands to the the castles that rise,

Boundless spirits that roar from the ground.

How can you despair or even despise?

So don’t stop to wait or compromise,

Don’t let your thoughts be drowned.

Look to the man with fire in his eyes.

I’ll hear you tell me a thousand why’s,

Take my ear for your stamping ground,

But I won’t despair or even despise.

So throw it to the sands,

Shun that dead sound.

You are the man with the fire in his eyes.
