"An Eagle in Your Mind" as written by and Michael/sandison,marcus(eoin,marcus) Sandison....
Holts are nearly always close to the sea
Fallen boulders, old ruins, and cliffs
All at the top of a sand crevice
High above the sea
A safe place for cubs
We wait tense
We're disappointed
She leaves her sprint loaded by others of us
The holts are evenly spaced, about five hundred meters apart
Who passes by, or they advertise

I love you

    General Commentthe eagle in your mind can be interpreted as a freedom of thought, or the importance of your inner world.
    Personally I always interpreted this tune with a paraplegic who could only live inside his head, his memories. and the i love you part sounds like what the humanity would like to hear from jesus.

    General Comment"Holts are nearly always close to the sea.
    Fallen boulders, old ruins, and cliffs, all at the top of a sand edifice high above the sea;
    a safe place for cubs.
    We wait ... tense;
    We're disappointed.
    She leaves her sprint loaded by the others of us.
    The holts are evenly spent about 500 meters apart;
    Only enough to fool the passerby (or so they advertise).

    I love you."

    I found this lyrics by watching the video at the following link:
    youtube.com/…
    As for the song meaning, I haven't the slightest clue but I do enjoy listening to it.

    General CommentGood job deciphering these impossible lyrics. But I don't see any sign of the most beautiful line in the song... At 2:52, you pathetically hear the man cry, "....I love you....!"

    General CommentIt does sound like 'spent', but wouldnt 'spaced' make more sense?
    The holts are evenly spaced, about 500 meters apart.
    and one time listening to it, 'advertise' sounded like 'habitat', again that would make more sense. Don't know if thats correct though.
    Anyone have any opinions on the meaning or purpose of this song? im curious..

    General CommentI think [sprint] is "spirit" and [spent] is "split"
