"Fire Eye'd Boy" as written by and Kevin Drew Justin Peroff....
Until the day you die
You always admit
You were right
You were wrong
About all of it

Fire-eyed boy gave them all the slip
Fire-eyed boy gave them all the slip
If you're gonna come you better make it quick
Fire-eyed boy gave them all the slip

Until the day I die
Columbia by plane biplane
Brought us back
Back to life
Drifted off again

Fire-eyed boy
Fire-eyed boy
If you're gonna come, you better make it quick
Fire-eyed boy gets his ass whipped

    Song MeaningI was listening to this today, in an excited and very competitive state.

    I think the song is about an ambitious young person, ready to take on the world. He's "always right" and giving "em all the slip." And then at the end, the song wraps up by saying that the ambitions youngster doesn't really get that far.

    Personally, I don't think this song is about drugs or hitler or anything that concrete - I think its more about the ideas of naivety and ambition.

    General Commentkinda sad how an amazing song like this can lead to a bunch of low-minded people slinging insults at eachother about gender and theories... WHO CARES. just listen to the damn song and be happy, or whatever it is you are.

    General CommentHe's fired up and determined, but he keeps getting pushed down. We're all cheering for him to finally give em all the slip. What does Columbia I blame mean? This song is awesome.

    General CommentI think it's "you always had lived" instead of "you always had left"...
