Steve Miller Band: Fly Like an Eagle Meaning

Song Released: 1976


Fly Like an Eagle Lyrics

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I'm...

    I believe it's about astral projection. Astral projection is the process of disconnecting your astral body from your physical body and exploring higher realms. "Fly like an eagle let my spirit carry me" The astral body IS the spirit of a person. Astral projection is well known among hippies and spiritual gurus so it fits with the psychedellic theme.

    In a way you can say this song is about consciensciously rising [flying like a eagle] to ''escape'' into the future in order to be free and know oneself from the reality of what a unhealthy revolution can bring, but also can be about not running out of your mind for overcoming it, but with having faith in the power of The Lord that the poor and the hungry will be fed and clothed throughout the revolution. All the while preparing you to become a conscienscious space traveler by developing your conscious mind to the point that you can travel by creating and getting into a upwards tunnel zone vision. Realizing and feeling your thoughts with the eagle fadeing into consciousness to rise and disconnect from your body, and into the time that's slippin away through the revolution and into the future.

    It's about skydiving.

    During the "fly like an eagle" parts he's looking at the horizon, enjoying the experience.

    During the "time keeps on slipping" parts he's looking down at the ground rushing towards him.

    The song ends during a "time keeps on slipping" part. Ouch.

    It's just psychedelic. What do need to know?
