Who is this man
That follows me?
This blue eyed boy
Who wants to be
This worthy cause
Of humankind
This pawn set up by time

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll drive you away, he'll drive you insane
But then he'll remove all of your pain

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, flying, flying

This open book
Yet to be read
This second look
This leap ahead
The hope I held inside
With you, was kept alive

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll drive you away, he'll drive you insane
But then he'll remove all of your pain

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, flying, flying

We're here to stay
We're here to stay
We're here to stay
We're here to stay

We're here to stay
We're here to stay
We're here to stay
We're here to stay

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, flying, flying

    General CommentMessianic definitely. I think nocopies is on the right track. “Like a bright light on the horizon, he'll remove all of your pain, he'll get you flying, worthy cause of human kind. Etc.”

    I think however this is sung from the context of the individuals personal messianic desire to be the Christ, or some type of savior. (This blue eyed boy that follows me). Blue eyed being symbolic of hope, innocence, even naivety, is following the teller of the tale. He has a desire to be a 'worthy cause of Humankind', the greatest aspiration a person can have but also wants this to be played out by fate, not out of personal ambition. (This pawn set up by time). In other words, to be chosen.
    “He'll get you flying” could be a literal reference to the rapture, or more likely may be symbolic of the emancipation of the spirit by this individual.
    “Like a bright light on the horizion” may be a reference to Lucifer, the bearer of light, the antichrist, but it more likely may be symbolic of hope. Either way, there is a relationship as the antichrist is full of pride and any aspiration to personally be the embodied realization of hope for humanity ultimately stems from pride so this could be inadvertently referring to Lucifer while not being the intention of the writer of the song. In any case, this song is definitely Messianic & not specifically about Curtis.
