Review The Song (2)



When the Eagle Cries
Music & Lyrics by Jon Schaffer

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

Chorus
When the eagle cries
Blood will flow
When the eagle cries
For freedom’s fight
When the eagle cries
sponsored links
We love her so
When the eagle cries
We will sacrifice
When the eagle cries

Out of the ashes came a tempting 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

Chorus
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
When the eagle cries

Chorus

A good song overall | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/14/11

"When the Eagle Cries" is more proof that heavy metal bands make the best ballads. The song could certainly be very moving, and its lyrics touch on a very emotional subject for a lot of people. My only complaint, however, is that despite the solemnity of the events that inspired this song, for many people outside of the United States it will take some effort to take certain sentiments as anything but the same exaggerated American Patriotism everyone is already used to. Of course, that might be why the song wasn't included on international releases of The Glorious Burden. If Jon Schaffer's tiresome ultra-patriotism can be taken in stride, though, this song makes for a very enjoyable power ballad.



good song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/21/08

This song has alot of meaning. It's saying that on the day of 9/11 the day went from a nice day to one filled with terror, and how many lives were lost. And how they would pay for what they did. It also says how the troops would give their lives to ensure freedom for those they are protecting. It also says that the terrorists didn't accomplish their goal in making us cower in fear. Instead we are bringing an ass kicking to them instead.
