"EAGLE BLEEDS"

Verse 1
Have you walked the streets today
-
With your head on your shoulders?
Seen thevice & the decay?
-
Uncle Sam is growin' older.
He isn't what he used to be,
-
A true God-fearing nation.
They took God out of State & schools
-
Only to reap damnation.
Chorus
I have seen enough to know there's nothing there;
Lies & vanity, home of the bound, land of despair.
I have chosen to take the path of higher ground.
Oh, can't you see? America's goin' down.
---- Repeat twice
Verse 2
Foul politics & Homicide
-
disease U.S. shores.
Doses of lies can't heal the wounds
-
Of carnality & more.
So the eagle bleeds its life away
-
While everybody's dreamin'.
Their days spent in pursuit of wealth,
-
Nights spent in lonely weepin'weepin'.
Repeat Chorus
Interlude: power chords and repeated 16 times
Repeat Chorus
---- Repeat twice
Verse 3
It looks so good from the outside,
-
A number one system.
But while lavished with security,
-
You become a slave, a victim
Of credit cards & payments due,
-
Chained to great illusions.
But Jesus can and will free you
-
From U.S. A. delusion, delusion.
Repeat Chorus
---- Repeat twice
