The Eagle Still He Soars

Out of the depths of the shadows
Of the night that fell before
We now find a new day
Yet still we are at war
The flag that stands for freedom
Stands waving in the breeze
The mothers and fathers of fallen soldiers
Beside their grave sites on their knees
The flag that stands for freedom
Will not touch the ground
The son of one of these heroes speaks
And no one makes a sound
He does not sight anger
For the reason he too will fight
He simply grasps his fathers medal
As he pledges to stand up for what is right
Out of the depths of the shadows
Of the night that fell before
We now find a new day
And the eagle still he soars
