Story Behind the Song

From episode 284 of the See You On The Other Side paranormal and pop culture podcast, "Death From Above: When BIg Bird Attacks". http://www.othersidepodcast.com/284 Winston Churchill famously said, "He who controls the skies controls the war." and as earthbound creatures, there's something extra terrifying about being attacked from the sky. Airborne predators pick their targets from far away and swoop in to snatch their prey. The stories of these giant bird attacks are certainly arbitrary and horrifying. It makes us realize how precarious and precious our life is when we we live on a knife edge of randomness. Whether it's cancer, tsunamis, car accidents, or gigantic condor kidnappings, we all live under the constant threat of "Death From Above".

Lyrics

Scratch marks on the shoulders
clawed holes in the chest
A victim of capricious randomness
Mice under the eagle
picked off from the dirt
carried somewhere far beyond the earth

The thief in the night
that takes everything you love
There's a killer in the sky
Death from above

Chance and serendipity
and the consequence of luck
We're just fate and fury
Death from above

Until you're back on solid ground,
You just can't let it go
terra firma, illusion of control

A casualty of chaos that was
cast out of paradise
To pacify, we need a sacrifice

The thief in the night
that takes everything you love
There's a killer in the sky
Death from above

Chance and serendipity
and the consequence of luck
We're just fate and fury
Death from above
