Attack of the Hawk

by Jim Nowhere

Oh the hawk; he waits 
Oh the hawk; she swoops 
Oh the hawks they fly Let the bombs fall down from the sky red, white, and blue
 Attacking all the others for a big piece of the pie 
Asserting their control of all things in their eyes Let them prey: on the weak 
Let them prey: on the old
 Let them prey; Let them prey; Let them prey; Let them prey
 The hawk gets what he wants Oh the hawk; he sleeps 
Oh the hawk; they hunt
 Maintaining the threat of attack in the new world and the old 
Going after field mice in the bitter cold 
Preying on the other birds all they say is true Let them prey: on the weak 
Let them prey: on the old 
Let them prey; Let them prey; Let them prey; Let them Prey 
Let them prey: on the weak 
Let them prey: on the old
 The hawk always gets what he wants 
No matter how the story is sold.


Attack of the Hawk has grown as a song from its sparse beginnings in 2011, passed over on the full length Devil’s Convent as I thought it needed a bit more work and a fuller sound then just an acoustic guitar and a little bit of layered distortion.
After having coffee with producer and friend Layne L’Heureux it was decided to be one of two tracks to be recorded to apply for an Edmonton Arts Council grant, had the grant been approved you would have been seeing the release of Let Them Prey, the long awaited follow up full length. At this time it’s still in the works, life just has a funny way of taking us down paths we didn’t intend to travel. I’m on one now, and its been a journey that I hope will come through in the final product.

Recorded over a couple cold winter evenings in January 2017 with friends, old and new, at Discount Sound Studios in Edmonton Alberta.
