Keep Your Eyes Off My Son Poem by Jim Schultz


Keep Your Eyes Off My Son

Verse 1
Get your eyes off my son
I didn”t raise him for you
Not the wars that you start
Not the evils you do
Don”t give a damn bout your cause
I don”t care bout your plan
Just protecting my son from that old government man

Refrain
Cause I can see the black madness of your soul
I see my country”s children march in service of your goal
I see the nations burn
The horror you”ve begun
Your destiny
Our tragedy
But not my only son

Verse 2
See the power you hold
See the tyrants of old
Are you one and the same
Are you part of the mold
He won”t be bleeding for you
I”m not letting him go
Keep your eyes off my son cause he”s just startin” to grow

Refrain
Cause I can see the black madness of your soul
I see my country”s children march in service of your goal
I see the nations burn
The horror you”ve begun
Your destiny
Our tragedy
But not my only son
