Behind The Eye Of The Mind

This song is by Beau and appears on the album Shoeless In The Desert (2015).

Birds fly high over the forest,
Over the leaves now tinged with brown.
Birds fly high over the forest,
Over the leaves now tinged with brown.
Fly to the south where the sun still beckons,
Fly to the south where the sun still beckons,
Fly to the south where the sun still beckons
From behind the eye of the mind.

Wings that lift them into the sunrise
Up to the cold of the morning air -
Wings that lift them into the sunrise
Up to the cold of the morning air
Carry the traveller over the mountain,
Carry the traveller over the mountain,
Carry the traveller over the mountain
From behind the eye of the mind.

Some will fall below their comrades
Losing the height they must maintain,
Some will fall below their comrades
Losing the height they must maintain;
Unavailing, and fighting and flailing,
Unavailing, and fighting and flailing,
Unavailing, and fighting and flailing
From behind the eye of the mind.

In strength of wing, the first arrival
Will light in the dust of his summer home -
In strength of wing, the first arrival
Will light in the dust of his summer home
And many's the instinct that carries the migrant,
Many's the instinct that carries the migrant,
Many's the instinct that carries the migrant
From behind the eye of the mind.
