WHEN EAGLES GATHER

Now the city streets are angry and the Devil’s running free
No one wants to follow is their none who will lead
Some folks kill each other for the colors that they wear
And the three AM siren wail fills the poisoned air

Wrong or right is something on which we don’t agree
We’re seeing what the kids have learned at their daddys’ knee
A momma cries oh Lord please don’t let it be my son
With tear filled eyes a lawman asks do you know where he got the gun

Chorus:

Well I read someplace I think it was in Matthew twenty four
That the time would come when we would hear the rumor of war
But this would just begin the sorrow much more lay in store
When the eagles gather in the air he’ll be standing at the door

Could it be that hated prophet was right all along
Did we really sell our souls for pleasure and a song
Will the moon turn blood red will the sun no longer shine
Could it be that it’s just me and I have lost my mind

I was gonna say that you needed more bass, then I though, "Try the headphones instead of the computer speakers," and sure enough, there was the bass!  Nice melody and arrangement and good words, but I kind of wonder if the two go together.  The music seems a little too happy (and don't get me wrong, I love the music) for "killing each other," and "poisoned air," and "momma cries" and "more sorrow."  Maybe music along the lines of "Ghost Riders in the Sky" would be more in keeping with the words.

But I still like the song!
