THE WINGED MAN

THE WINGED MAN
Heaven knows why but he saved us from the furnace
We mistreated his kind and stained his need to see

Heaven knows why
Our people will fly
Memory will die
This winged man he cried

Melting above he drew his energy from below
And seeing the sun he knew he had to go

Heaven knows why
Our people will fly
Memory will die
This winged man he cried

Can you hear the voices
Hear the voices around you?
And the echo of the voices
Hear them too
Play on
Play on

Seething below the man was a wreck of invention
And we brought him down just like a crash landing

Heaven knows why
Our people will fly
Memory will die
This winged man he cried

He was too far ahead for us here so he flew
Back to the sun where he’s working on something new

Heaven knows why
Our people will fly
Memory will die
This winged man he cried
