Oh, my boy
You are king of your blue eyes
but don't open them too wide
And hear the cavalry roar
and the beating of the drums
Hear them calling out a name

And when they do
Don't get scared and cry out
"I am"
Don't see the other in anything
They'll never let
you go

Oh, my child
You were young when they first told you
that the devil is within ya
And first felt that you
wanted to know more than you knew
Felt the first desire to rule

And it seems so cruel
You took the one
and split it out into two
You made it all mean something
about you
Oh, when will they let
you go?

And I know what I did
And I don't wanna be reminded

Oh, my child
though you're king of your wax wings
you're at the mercy of the winds
Still, it's the breath
How the golden bough hangs over us
How the moon's bearing down on us
I know, I know

And I know what I've done
And I don't wanna hear it from you
or anyone
