In the heart of battle we were tested
All of us were in the front line too
We were in the thick of it
Soon we were sick of it
But we had much more soldering to do
I'll tell you what it was that drove us on
The certainty that we were right
And the enemy was wrong

Go up on the mountain
Speak to gods and men
See if they can tell you why they died
Ask them when we stop the greed
Ask them why we have to bleed
They will tell you "brother, when the eagle screams we die"

In the heat of battle we were brave
Mentioned in dispatches that is true
We were given medals, but now they call us devils
And now we can't decide between the two
I'll tell you what it was that changed the rules
When the High Command was given up
To businessmen and fools

Go up to the graveyard
Tell them what I sad
See if they rest easy where they lie
Ask them if they found release
Ask them if they rest in peace
They will tell you "brother, when the eagle screams we die"

In the heat of battle we were murdered
We lie forever in a foreign field
Bodies broken, future lost
Lives unspoken, what a cost
Still the young men come with zest and zeal
I'll tell you why they want to fight and die
Because the people over them are full of shit and lies

Go up to the battlefield
Ask them what they want
Find out how they feel where they lie
They would like to win the war
But when they wonder who it's for
They will tell you "brother, when the eagle screams we die"

When the eagle screams
When the eagle screams you die
When the eagle screams you die
Eagle screams you die
