(July 13,1991 / Indiana)

Dark Blue Island

Leave him all alone to cry
in the middle of the night
Leave him all alone there
until he feels alright
He remembers all his goals
He's a balloon in the sky
Whose dreams and self worth burst
when he floats too high
These are high expectations
His self realization's
Fog up his brilliant mind
Life wants to rewind
Don't take him to the old park
where he used to run and play
Don't take him back to see
where he could not stay
Just let him be an island
You can brush up to his shore
but just as you reach him
he will just ignore
He has a black ambition
an endless, pointless mission
That doesn't treasure touch
which he wants so much

Just let him be, just let him be

He has lost grip on reality
The people in his whole life, are now just props
Rock-a-bye baby always stops
He now swings high above the tree tops
In his dark reality
is where he wants to stay
but when you are older mom
Your love he will repay, your love he will repay

His mind is now made up mom
He will cry alone tonight
like life doesn't matter
unless he is right
He wants an independence
He wants to do it alone
Re-stack his house of cards
after the wind has blown
He remembers the fall
Happiness he does recall
The color of the leaves
is all he believes
His mother held his little hand
and it eased life's hard tension
But soon became needy
She craved attention
When life became too heavy
He would hide in his closet
which was the same dark blue
as his dark mind-set
Don't worry about him mother
You understand each other
His mind won't be so lost
At such high a cost

Just let him be, just let him be

He has lost grip on reality
The people in his whole life, are now just props
Rock-a-bye baby always stops
He now swings high above the tree tops
In his dark reality
is where he wants to stay
but when you are older mom
Your love he will repay, your love he will repay

A new morning will come
A light will shine upon his face
shine upon his face
and crawl across his wooden floor
to every darkened place
His selfish darkness will end
and a light will shine upon his face
shine upon his face
when he smiles again

Just let him be, just let him be

He has lost grip on reality
The people in his whole life, are now just props
Rock-a-bye baby always stops
He now swings above the tree tops
In his dark reality
is where he wants to stay
but when you are older mom
Your love he will repay, your love he will repay
