When the eagle flies you'd better watch your eyes He's gonna sweep everything in his path And when the Heavens cry it's gonna drown the sky And you'll get caught aftermath When mountains move it's not good trying To prove that you've been doing everything that you can And don't you start to cry when. you're about to die You gotta stand and take it like a man 'Cause you've been taking instead of giving And all the while you've been living lies Economics, all your atomics Ain't gonna save you from that bird in the sky And when the good.
