take to the streets
spread the word around
politicians and preists
are bringing us down
they have a list
of do's and don't
they know all your
of course that's the way
that it's always been
if it's not illegal
then it's a sin
gotta keep us in line
with guilt
looks as though we've finally built
chorus:
babylon
send you to school
where you're carefully taught
then control your every thought
saying give us money
and we'll give you love
send you all to heaven above
teach you to be good
and to be brought up strong
nobody taught me how to get along
stuff you full of things
just to fill your head
but it does no good
when you end up dead in
chorus:
babylon
for an unseen god you start a war
burn a witch and kill the poor
I've had enough of telling lies
I've had enough of religious crimes
i don't need no reverend moon
i don't need no krishna too
no more kings will wear the crown
now it's time to tear down
