As the sun breaks
Above the ground
An old man stands on the hill

As the ground warms
To the first rays of light
A birdsong shatters the still

His eyes are ablaze
See the madman
In his gaze

Fly on your way like an eagle
Fly as high as the sun
On your wings like an eagle
Fly, touch the sun, yeah

Now the crowd breaks
And a young boy appears
Looks the old man in the eye

As he spreads his wings
And shouts at the crowd
"In the name of God, my Father, I fly"

His eyes seem so glazed
As he flies on
The wings of a dream

Now he knows his Father betrayed
Now his wings turn to ashes
To ashes his grave

Fly on your way like an eagle
Fly as high as the sun
On your wings like an eagle
Fly, touch the sun

Yeah, fly on your way like an eagle
Fly as high as the sun
On your way like an eagle
Fly as high as the sun

On your way like an eagle
Fly, touch the sun
On your way like an eagle, fly
Fly as high as the sun
