Eagle on a Pole - Lyrics

I saw an eagle on a pole
I think it was an eagle
Now that eagle has flown
And I'll never know

Could have been a rotten apple
Full of holes
Could have been an open wine bottle
Ready to go
Or it could have been an eagle on a pole

Well the beauty of the seasons
Can rip a man up whole
And what's happening while you're sleeping
You will never know

Never trust a truly wayward
Wandering soul
Never trust a wanted woman
Who can't say no
And you never trust an eagle on a pole

Don't you wanna know why
Why why, why why
Don't you wanna know why
Why why, why why
Don't you ever trust an eagle on a pole

I've seen pictures of my face from
Where I swear I did no go
Looked like laughing, looked like stealing
But I will never know

Looked like running, leaving tracks
Through the morning snow
Looked like darkness and the light
Going toe to toe
And it looked just like an eagle on a pole

Look out
Evil come and there's nothing left to laugh about
Eden come and we're crying 'cause we can't get out
Get out, get out

Something moving, something floating
Something falling soft and slow
It was getting supernatural
But you never know

Getting ready for the girls
At the burlesque show
Getting ready for the night time
Street light glowing
Get ready for that eagle on a pole

Look out
Evil come and there's nothing left to laugh about
Evil come and there's nothing left to laugh about
Eden come and we're crying 'cause we can't get out
Get out, get out

Don't you wanna know why?
Why not? Why not?
Don't you wanna know why?
Why not? Why not?

Don't you ever trust an eagle on a pole
No, you never trust an eagle on a pole
