about

THE MAN WITH THE BURNING EYES: Like a horror movie shot on music.  Is has a sort of sinister “James Bond theme tune” vibe to it. Is it about the Devil?  Is it a song about losing love?  It's definitely about going someplace crazy.  And it'll drive you there.

lyrics

There’s a man with burning eyes
His face a mask
A brilliant disguise
Watch his mouth
He’ll tell you lies
And carry you
Away

He’ll promise you many things
Build you mansions
Buy you diamond rings
Under his overcoat
He has wings
He’ll fly you
You’ll cry
When he carries you away

He’ll walk like a lover
He’ll pray like a saint
He’ll sing like Caruso
But the words he sings are ancient
They all say
Come away
Come away

He’ll follow you in your dreams
The world he shows you
Is not what it seems
Don’t listen
To the screams
When he carries you away

They say his heart is as black as night
They say the angels all weep at the sight of him
Your blood runs cold, you’ll die of fright
When he carries you away

Don’t go away with him
Baby stay
Don’t go away with him
Baby stay
Don’t go away, no, no
Don’t go away with the man
With the man with the
Burning eyes

The diamond ring is a ring of fire
The house he builds, a funeral pyre
Locked inside watch the flames grow higher
And higher, and higher, and higher
My God, my God
The fire! The fire!

They say he’s known as the Prince of Fear
He’ll take his throne when the end is near
Abandon hope all ye who enter here
He’s the man, the man, the man
With the burning eyes
With the burning eyes
With the burning eyes
He’s the man with the burning eyes!
