WINGS OF AN EAGLE
(Music:  "Angel", Sarah McLachlan)

Spend all your time fighting for your noble cause
And keep telling yourself you're okay
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day

You need some distraction or a beautiful release
Memories seep from your veins
Try to be empty and weightless and maybe
You'll find some peace tonight

On the wings of an eagle fly away from here
From the dark, cold misgivings and the emptiness that you feel
Pull your heart from the wreckage of your silent tragedy
And on the wings of an eagle, may you fly finally free

So tired of the same fight, and everywhere you turn
There's traitors and spies at your door
The tale keeps on twisting, you keep on finding the lies
That you thought you were fighting for

It don't make no difference, escape one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
That brings you to your knees

On the wings of an eagle fly away from here
From the dark, cold misgivings and the emptiness that you feel
Pull your heart from the wreckage of your silent tragedy
And on the wings of an eagle, may you fly finally free

And on the wings of an eagle, may you fly finally free
