Well the portions of heaven they gave to a few
So the lions and tigers, they eat really well
But the desperate teenager's under a spell
Yeah they'll sign up for treasure but leave with the girl
Yeah they'll sign up for treasure but leave with the girl
Yeah they'll sign up for treasure but leave with the girl

And the mountain that drew us together is lit
By the lightning that crackles and rivals the wind
Where the only expression of love is through tears
And the highest creation on earth is a bird
The most powerful symbol, a two-headed bird
The most powerful symbol, a two-headed bird

    General CommentTo me the last lines sound like:

    The most powerful symbol, a two-headed bird
    The most powerful symbol, a two-headed bird

    I think it's a reference to the symbol of the double-headed eagle, which is associated with many powerful groups and governments like the Holy Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire and Freemasonry.
