    "When the Eagle Flies" Lyrics

    Steve Winwood feat. Traffic

    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 in the aftermath
    When the mountains move it's no good trying
    To prove that you've been doing everything you can
    And don't you start to cry when you're about to die
    You gotta stand up and take it like a man
    Because 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 times roll wrapped up in your mink coat
    You will be stepping from your Cadillac
    You will be stepping from your Cadillac
    And in a micro flash you're gonna feel the lash
    Of big eagle's wing across your back
    And when the seas subside you'll see him glide right out of view
    In clouds of snow the rains will come
    And wash away the scum so that all the little flowers can grow
    There'll be no more taking, only giving
    And the sun pouring down
    No economics and no atomics
    Just the spread of Mother Nature's gown
    Do you hear me, Mother Nature? ...
