"Where Eagles Have Been" as written by Andrew James Stockdale, Myles Heskett and Christopher James Ross....
Well we always seem to worry,
Life's becoming such a flurry,
Can't you see that there's light in the dark,
Nothin's quite what it seems in the city of dreams,

Rainbows tinted with gold,
All the stories we've been told,
Still her love is yours to behold,
Nothin's quite what it seems in the city of dreams,

You say it's not the real world,
Though it seems so real to me,
And I know that we're never turning back,
Can you see what I see,

I had a vision,
Of festive day's,
She's like an eagle,
In the misted haze,

Sit and wonder at the sky,
Watch the river flowing by,
Now it ends and we're here at the start,
Nothin's quite what it seems in the city of dreams,

You say it's not the real world,
Though it seems so real to me,
And I know that we're never turning back,
Can you see what I see,

I had a vision,
Of festive day's,
She's like an eagle,
In the misted haze,

Oh break my chains girl,
Show me to the land,
Where people live together,
Try to understand,

    General CommentI think this is about LA, where Wolfies recorded their album( "City of Dreams") "You say its not the real world" - people say how fake the whole industry type thing is (and they're right in my opinion...)

    General CommentThe intro to this song vaguely reminds me of the beginning to Marshall Tucker Band's - Can't You See.

    Regardless, this song rocks as do all of their songs!

    General Commenttimmy_r!
    I think they're trying to give LA a different outlook. I think they're look at it as a place to escape to where their dreams can come true. Especially the last part:
    Oh break my chains girl,
    Show me to the land,
    Where people live together,
    Try to understand

    GIRL isn't a real girl, it's the city. He's hoping this'll be his big break and his chance to be free and do something he wants to.

    Also, could it be talking about Hollywood? Or are you all sure it's LA?
