|An Eagle in Your Mind|
The song samples the documentary On the Tracks of the Wild Otter (1983). The sample can be heard at around 26:40.
all atop of the santcus high above the sea a safe place on all counts a great place
"the holts are nearly always close to sea
fallen boulders, old ruins, and cliffs
all at the top of a sand edifice
high above the sea
a safe place for cubs
we wait, tense
she leaves her [?] loaded by others of us
the holts are evenly spread
about 500 meters apart [?] or so they advertise"
"Holts are nearly always close to the sea,
fallen boulders, old ruins, and cliffs,
all atop the sand edifice,
high above the sea:
a safe place for cubs.
We wait ... tense. We're disappointed.
She leaves her [?] to look for [others?]
The holts are evenly spaced, about 5 meters apart,
Only enough to fool the passers-by, or so they advertise
I love you"
"She leaves us [wait?] [loaded for others of us?].
The holts are about 500 meters apart,
And of use only [?] pass us by, or they [advertise?]"
"there's a background sound throughout the song which could be "sweat-sweat" (in the first part of the song), with "tension" coming in later. It's hard to recognise as speech, but it could well be; one of the interviews says that the "percussion" in the track was constructed using the voice of the girlfriend of one of BoC."
- A voice that sounds like a black male singing "No" fades in at 4:35 and continues throughout the song. (Sounds like another 70s/80s disco/funk sample) At 5:27 A scratchy sample saying "Yeah" is played forward, then backward, then forward again, with some additional scrubbing in between. At 6:00, "Yeah" plays again, but only once.
