Someone's mother falls to the sidewalk, on the next street ssomeone looks up
In the cathedral a burst of laughter, in another city the pigeons fly up and
scatter
Someone putdown in a new york subway, a newspaper picked up in australia
For each event the inarticulate glory, the equal and opposite will tell
the story
HALF ANGEL HALF EAGLE ONE EYE ON THE WORLD
HALF ANGEL HALF EAGLE ONE EYE ON THE WORLD
Be ready
5 intelligent minds huddled in a fancy restaurant,
All that brain power bent on...what shall i? what shall i?...
One lone car cruise the warehouse district
One lone figure shuffling along the wall
2 shadows leaning from the backseat window
Someone's mother is about to fall
Fuckinghonkyniggerjewwaspjapdagfag
Fuckinghomelesspreacherdikecabbiefuckingunionscab
GET OUT GO BACK A STORM IS COMING
(a shudder in the colour of the warehouse wall)
HALF ANGEL HALF EAGLE ONE EYE ON THE WORLD
HALF ANGEL HALF EAGLE ONE EYE ON THE WORLD
Be ready
have a good time but don't relax
have a good time but be on guard
you don't need that much not that much
get the wings up ready to go
get the wings up ready to go
what shall i? what shall i?
a shudder in the colour of the warehouse wall
