Comfort Eagle Lyrics - Cake

Review The Song (13)

We are building a religion
We are building it bigger
We are widening the corridors
And adding more lanes

We are building a religion
A limited edition
We are now accepting callers
For these pendant key chains

To resist it is useless
It is useless to resist it
His cigarette is burning
But he never seems to ash

He is grooming his poodle
He is living comfort eagle
You can meet at his location
But you'd better come with cash

sponsored links
Now his hat is on backwards
He can show you his tatoos
He is in the music business
He is calling you "DUDE!"

Now today is tomorrow
And tomorrow today
And yesterday is weaving in and out

And the fluffy white lines
That the airplane leaves behind
Are drifting right in front
Of the waning of the moon

He is handling the money
He's serving the food
He knows about your party
He is calling you "DUDE!"

Now do you believe
In the one big sign
The doublewide shine
On the bootheels of your prime

Doesn't matter if you're skinny
Doesn't matter if you're fat
You can dress up like a sultan
In your onion head hat

We are building a religion
We are making a brand
We're the only ones to turn to
When your castles turn to sand

Take a bite of this apple
Mr. corporate events
Take a walk through the jungle
Of cardboard shanties and tents

Some people drink Pepsi
Some people drink Coke
The wacky morning DJ
Says democracy's a joke

He says now do you believe
In the one big song
He's now accepting callers
Who would like to sing along

He says, do you believe
In the one true edge
By fastening your safety belts
And stepping towards the ledge

He is handling the money
He is serving the food
He is now accepting callers
He is calling me "DUDE!"

Do you believe
In the one big sign
The doublewide shine
On the bootheels of your prime

There's no need to ask directions
If you ever lose your mind
We're behind you
We're behind you
And let us please remind you
We can send a car to find you
If you ever lose your way

We are building a religion

We are building it bigger

We are building

A religion

A limited


We are now accepting callers...
For these beautiful...
Pendant keychains

Best ever | Reviewer: Raymond | 1/19/11

Love this song. It is my favorite of theirs. I just saw Cake in Portland and they opened with this song. The crowd just went wild. Awesome show. They always show you a good time and they have the best fans.

Comfort Eagle | Reviewer: Gwynn | 6/6/10

To Dylan, I can see how this might offend people. It doesn't offend me, but some people might get mad at this song, especially close to 9/11.
This song, I believe is about a non-conformist skaterish group. The group is described in the first and forth verses. They are talking about living life from life ("fastening your safety belts and stepping towards the ledge") instead of a more materealistic Americanized fashion ("He is living comfort eagle, you can meet at his location but you better come with cash"). That is what I think it's about, and why I think people might have gotten offended.

CAKE= kick ass band | Reviewer: CAKE fan | 11/2/09

I was watching Shallow Hal a couple years ago, and from that whole movie all I remembered is this song soo I looked it up and I listened to it and still do, I love this song. Other good songs by CAKE are "Hem of your garment" and "Never there" both great songs!

Just saw cake in concert | Reviewer: natedogg | 9/9/09

I have never paid attention to cake in the past until my girlfriend took me to a up close and personal show with them and I was absolutely impressed. They were great showmen and had the crowd involved throughout their 2 sets and encore. I really appreciate a humble band who states apparently every show "We are Cake We are here to serve YOU. Thank you for listening to our music" I really truly felt that he was absolutely sincere when he said this. I guess in the end thats all that matters....... I will def see them again in the future. I hope........

OBEY CAKE | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/20/09

CAKE are one of those bands that are anomolous, they cannot be pinned down or categorized. I frankly don't care if they ever reach "pop" status. Being on the fringe keeps them sharp and inventive. Comfort Eagle is indeed one of their best, included on one of their best. It's all good though. I've enjoyed many of their live performances, and am looking forward to yet another when they appear at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium in beautiful Lowell, Massachusetts in May 2009. OBEY COMFORT EAGLE, OBEY CAKE...

Loved it halfway through | Reviewer: Brian Hurrel | 4/15/09

I just heard this song today for the first time on a college station. It's just a neat, quirky, catchy tune, but the lyrics are great as well. Of course, the station didn't give the name of the song or artist, but I was able to find the lyrics by searching "building a religion" and "onion head hat". I'm definitely getting this.

Amazing Song | Reviewer: Dylan | 6/5/08

This is one of my favorite Cake songs, if not my absolute favorite. Comfort Eagle is an amazing album. Too bad this never became a single (it was going to be, but then 9/11 happened and they thought this song might offend people... I don't really see how it has anything to do with 9/11 besides the word "airplane" showing up once, though...)
They should reissue the whole album and release this song as a single. It's put together well, it's catchy, and it means something. I like Comfort Eagle even better than Short Skirt Long Jacket.


Love it! | Reviewer: Sarah | 12/24/07

This is the kind of song that makes me love cake even more (if that's possible)they are the only band I know that could get away with a song like this, as is with most of their songs.

~love~ | Reviewer: Hawthorne | 4/27/07

i love this band, this song, the entire album!~~~
i love how it insults the media/big music industry
