Genius Child

This is a song for the genius child.
Sing it softly, for the song is wild.
Sing it softly as ever you can -
Lest the song get out of hand.

<i>Nobody loves a genius child.</i>

Can you love an eagle,
Tame or wild?
Can you love an eagle,
Wild or tame?
Can you love a monster
Of frightening name?

<i>Nobody loves a genius child.</i>

<i>Kill him</i> - and let his soul run wild.
