The Road to Babylon

1) There’s smoke over the city, people fightin’ in the street

Soldiers on the battlefield cut down like winter wheat

I see the rags of torn up flags bloody at my feet

And we are runnin’ down the road to Babylon

 

Chorus

Runnin’ down the road, yeah we’re runnin’ down this road

Does anybody know what’s goin’ on?

Well the men up at the top are just like junkies who can’t stop

Runnin’ down the road to Babylon

 

2) Well, they say we’re fightin’ holy wars but that is just a lie

It’s black gold we’re after and a bigger piece of the pie

It’s not their children in harm’s way and it won’t be them to die

And we’re runnin’ down the road to Babylon  Chorus

 

Bridge

Babylon in ruins is a monument to pride

To the big lies of the big men who swear they’re sanctified

To the priests and kings who pull the strings they try so hard to hide

 

3) In the name of god and country, there is terror in the air

Though it looks like self-destruction all we do is stare

It’s like a dream where you try to scream but nobody can hear

And we’re runnin’ down the road to Babylon   Chorus
