Another day, just like any other
Out of the blue, it turned to horror
How could they?
Why would they?
The innocents suffered hell's inferno
An senseless act that goes unforgotten
How could they?
They will pay.

When the Eagle Cries
Blood will flow
When the Eagle Cries
For freedom's fight
When the Eagle Cries
We love her so
When the Eagle Cries
We will sacrifice

Out of the ashes came a tempted vengeance
But we are focused, we seek redemption
We are free
We'll stay free
All they've done is make us stronger
The sleeping giant is asleep no longer
If need be
We'll die free

When the Eagle Cries
Blood will flow
When the Eagle Cries
For freedom's fight
When the Eagle Cries
We love her so
When the Eagle Cries
We will sacrifice

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song I thought it was about the Japs attacking Pearl Harbor on Dec 7th, 1941, especialy when he said "The sleeping giant is asleep no longer". Those were Adm. Yamamoto's words after the attack. Then I saw the video to Eagle Cries, so I guess I was wrong. Oh hey "Arm" and "Mattxg88", Screw both of you! Nuking Nagasaki and Hiroshima saved Millions of lives on both sides by bringing the war to an early end. The Japs would have fought till every last man, woman and child were dead. Read your history you narrow minded liberal pieces of crap!!!
