      About "Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud"

      Solemn faced
      The village settles down
      Undetected by the stars
      And the hangman plays the mandolin before he goes to sleep
      And the last thing on his mind
      Is the Wild Eyed Boy imprisoned
      'Neath the covered wooden shaft
      Folds the rope
      Into its bag
      Blows his pipe of smolders
      Blankets smoke into the room
      And the day will end for some
      As the night begins for one

      Staring through the message in his eyes
      Lies a solitary son
      From the mountain called Freecloud
      Where the eagle dare not fly
      And the patience in his sigh
      Gives no indication
      For the townsmen to decide
      So the village Dreadful yawns
      Pronouncing gross diversion
      As the label for the dog
      Oh "It's the madness in his eyes"
      As he breaks the night to cry:

      "It's really me
      Really you
      And really me
      It's so hard for us to really be
      Really you
      And really me
      You'll lose me though I'm always
      Really free"

      And the mountain moved its eyes
      To the world of realize
      Where the snow had saved a place
      For the wild eyed boy
      From Freecloud

      And the village Dreadful cried
      As the rope began to rise
      For the smile stayed on the face
      Of the wild eyed boy
      From Freecloud
      And the women once proud
      Clutched the heart of the crowd
      As the boulders smashed down from the mountain's hand

      And the magic in the stare
      Of the wild eyed boy said
      "Stop, Freecloud
      They won't think to cut me down"
      But the cottages fell
      Like a playing card hell
      And the tears on the face
      Of the wise boy
      Came tumbling down
      To the rumbling ground
      And the missionary mystic of peace/love
      Stumbled to cry among the clouds
      Kicking back the pebbles
      From the Freecloud mountain
