Half Angel Half Eagle

Someone's mother falls to the sidewalk

on the next street someone looks up.

In the cathedral a burst of laughter

in another city the pigeons fly up and scatter.

Someone put down in a New York subway

a newspaper picked up in Australia.

For each event the inarticulate glory

the equal and opposite will tell the story .

half angel, half eagle

one eye on the world

Five intelligent minds huddled in a fancy restaurant

All that brain power bent on...

"What shall I?"

One lone car cruise the warehouse district

One lone figure shuffling along the wall

Two shadows leaning from the backseat window

Someone's mother is about to fall

"F**kinghonkyhomelesspreacherf**kingunionscab

Get out! Go back to your own country!"

(a shudder in the colour of the warehouse wall)

Half angel, half eagle

One eye on the world

Get ready.

Have a good time but don't relax

Have a good time but be on guard

You don't need that much not THAT much

Get the wings up ready to go

Get the wings up ready to go

What shall I? What shall I?

(A shudder in the colour of the warehouse wall.)
