Pull back skin from bone exposed
Pull back skin from bone expo-o-o-o o-o-osed
Tie the eagle to my spine
Let it fly now
Let it fly now
Let it fly now
Let it fly now

There is nothing to fear
There is nothing to fear
There is nothing to fear
There is nothing to fear
There is nothing to fear

Let it fly now
Let it fly now
Let it fly now
Let it fly now
Let it fly now

Pull back skin from bone exposed
Pull back skin from bone expo-o-o-o o-o-osed
Tie the eagle to my spine
Let it fly now
Let it fly now
Let it fly now
Let it fly now

So thank you
Profiteer
Thank you
Profiteer
For the empty bed we have made

Now there's nothing here
Now there's nothing here
On the empty bed we have made

So thank you
Profiteer
So thank you
Profiteer

Tie the eagle to my spine
Let it fly now
Let it fly now
Let it fly now


There is nothing to fear [x14]

There is nothing to fear [x10]

There is nothing here at all

    General CommentI have done this by ear and there are bound to be mistakes. Please suggest or propose anything you hear which is contrary to what i have written (particularly the background singing).

    Let us enhance our enjoyment of Foals together!

    General CommentI think it could be about, just from skimming over the lyrics, maybe about Promethius in Greek Mythology. He gave fire to the humans, so Zeus tied him to a rock, face forward. Then an Eagle came every day to eat his liver (his liver would grow back over night). So, while typing this i went into deeper thought and now thinking maybe it's about making a mistake and self punishing, or getting punished by people. Or maybe holding a Grudge? I didn't go into much thought but ya know...
