In his modern protest song entitled 'Warning Call', Eric uses a collage of sounds to capture the anguish of modern events and the conflicted feelings of helplessness, hope and indignation that characterize modern times.
In the spoils of war,
In the counting of gold,
In the homeless and poor
Lying hungry and cold.
In a Hollywood star
staring into her mirror
There's a warning call
That we don't hear..

In the castles of kings,
In the squalor below,
In a conference room,
In the CEO
In a dictator's dreams,
In a self-righteous sneer
There's a warning call
That we don't hear..

Sometimes I dream, I can rise above the world
Looking down, we seem so small
Sometimes I think, that we could change
If we could hear the warning call..

In the husband and wife,
In the fighting at night,
In the talk of divorce,
In the need to be right.
In a child who wakes up
To the screams and the tears
There's a warning call
That we don't hear..

In the selling of arms,
In the buying of oil,
In a drug deal gone bad,
In the hand gun's recoil..
In a suicide bomb,
In the culture of fear,
There's a warning call
That we don't hear...

Sometimes I dream, I can see beyond the world
Looking down, we seem so small
Sometimes I think -that we could change
If we could hear the warning call..
