When The Eagle Screams Lyrics

In the heart of battle we were tested
All of us were in the front line too
We were in the thick of it
Soon we were so sick of it
But we had much more soldering to do

I'll tell you what it was that drove us on
The certainty that we were right and the enemy was wrong
Go up on the mountain, speak to gods and men
See if they can tell you why they died

Ask them when we stop the greed
Ask them why we have to bleed
They will tell you, brother
When the eagle screams we die

In the heat of battle we were brave
Mentioned in dispatches that is true
We were given medals but now they call us devils
And now we can't decide between the two

I'll tell you what it was that changed the rules
When the high command was given up to businessmen and fools
Go up to the graveyard, tell them what I said
See if they rest easy where they lie

Ask them if they found release
Ask them if they rest in peace
They will tell you, brother
When the eagle screams we die

In the heat of battle we were murdered
We lie forever in a foreign field
Bodies broken, future lost
Lives unspoken, what a cost

Still the young men come with zest and zeal
I'll tell you why they want to fight and die
Because the people over them are full of shit and lies
Go up to the battlefield, ask them what they want
Find out how they feel where they lie

They would like to win the war
But when they wonder who it's for
They will tell you, brother
When the eagle screams we die

When the eagle screams
When the eagle screams you die
When the eagle screams you die
Eagle screams you die, hey
