Fly Boy (Radio Edit)

by John Wesley

Mama their eyes burn
Holes right through me when I walk by them
How do I offend?

They make me wanna hide
Sometimes I turn my head away and try
Yet I cannot disappear

She said they don’t know you
They don’t shine the way that you do
This world ain’t good enough for the likes of you
You got to get away

You got to fly boy, find your powers and a cape
You got to make your escape, and get away

These years have not been kind
Each new day brings a struggle of a different kind
But hell I don’t mind
A busy man looks through me
His money’d eyes blind to what he will not see
He don’t know the secrets I keep
Well I am happier than he,

‘Cause I’m gonna fly boy, gonna find powers and a cape
I’m gonna make my escape, gonna get outta here

I know about it, I know about it. The world has lost all its dreams
I know about it. The world won’t let us breathe. Won’t set us free

Each day we run this race
Consumed by self we miss the brave face
Or we look away

But not me. I’m gonna rise above this caste you made for me
Gonna be everything you dream but will never be. I’m gonna fly…

‘Cause I am Flyboy, got my powers and a cape
Gonna make my escape, gonna get outta here

An Ordinary Man

by John Wesley

How easily forgotten
how easily replaced
your loved ones become…
We are the wreckage strewn behind you
love’s own casualties
from the battle that you won

You could not wait
to fly your flag
you could not wait
to raise you man in victory

I know you hate
to be mistaken
for the woman
of just an ordinary man…
To be the lover
of an ordinary man

I’m down on my knees
I’m crawling across the floor to you
I’m holding out my hand
God I do not understand
why I’m down on my knees

Now I’m troubled by your silence
I’m troubled that you no longer dare
to lay with me under the night stars
or walk unhindered on your own two legs
you could not wait
to lose your new freedom
you could not wait
to carry your new chains
I know you hate
to keep him waiting
so you’d better
drag yourself back to him again

I wanna feel alive
I wanna feel awake
to make these night stars go away
I wanna feel alive
I wanna feel awake
I wanna feel anything and
everything
this world will let me taste

I wanna see you cry
I wanna see you break
I wanna see you crash into the walls
of your own infamy

Fly Boy (Album version)

by John Wesley

Mama their eyes burn
Holes right through me when I walk by them
How do I offend?

They make me wanna hide
Sometimes I turn my head away and try
Yet I cannot disappear

She said they don’t know you
They don’t shine the way that you do
This world ain’t good enough for the likes of you
You got to get away

You got to fly boy, find your powers and a cape
You got to make your escape, and get away

These years have not been kind
Each new day brings a struggle of a different kind
But hell I don’t mind
A busy man looks through me
His money’d eyes blind to what he will not see
He don’t know the secrets I keep
Well I am happier than he,

‘Cause I’m gonna fly boy, gonna find powers and a cape
I’m gonna make my escape, gonna get outta here

I know about it, I know about it. The world has lost all its dreams
I know about it. The world won’t let us breathe. Won’t set us free

Consumed by self we miss the brave face
Or we look away

But not me. I’m gonna rise above this caste you made for me
Gonna be everything you dream but will never be. I’m gonna fly…

‘Cause I am Flyboy, got my powers and a cape
Gonna make my escape, gonna get outta here
