When The Sun Went Down

Eyes
That sketch the tunes that the pirates play
And as gypsies dance as the sun goes down
They rise

Eyes 
That keep the robes as soldiers fight
Then fight against the misty haze
But fearless as the jackal hound
Barks at the night as the sun goes down
They rise

But the stars of light with tears profound
They shed their light when the sun goes down


Eyes 
That pick the bones that  the eagles prey
And as bats in the field as the sun goes down
They rise

Eyes
That plot the tombs where prophets bled
Then mope around with demon craze
Seized by devils with eerie sound
That haunts the dead as the sun goes down
They rise

But the stars of light with tear profound
They shed their light when the sun goes down


Eyes
That sow the fields that the potters pay
And as mobs in the dark as  the sun goes down
They rise

Eyes
That wet their tongues their egos fed
Then singe their souls with mocking praise
And dub him king though rightly crowned
And pierce his head as  the sun goes down
They rise

But the stars of light with tears profound
They shed their light when the sun goes down


Eyes
That tread the path that the pilot lay
And as seed in the earth as the sun goes down
It dies

Eyes
That caught the scene no wholesome sight
Then glanced his stare his awesome gaze
But though he faint yet onward bound
Lifted up that night when the sun went down
He dies

But the stars of light with tears profound
They fled that night when the sun went down
