"A Fire In Babylon" as written by and Matthew Bachand Brian Fair....
A spark will soon ignite, burning flame of jah light
A fire that will purify, and wipe away the city's lies
Reducing fortunes into ash, tear apart your useless mask
Nowhere left for you to hide, damned for your foolish pride

Chant down Babylon

Revelations time is now
Your world will crumble to the ground
Final judgment now has come, this is a Armageddon

A eulogy, for the modern man
Enslaved and devoured by the strength of his demands
A eulogy, for the modern man
Hide your head and cower or be struck down where you stand

To advance in truth and rights, to advance in love and light
The path of righteousness is leading, the songs of I and I are pleading
In the grace of Mt. Zion, with the strength of a lion
All barriers shall be broken, all heart alight and open

Chant down Babylon

Revelations time is now
Your world will crumble to the ground
Final judgment now has come, this is a Armageddon

A eulogy, for the modern man
Enslaved and devoured by the strength of his demands
A eulogy, for the modern man
Hide your head and cower or be struck down where you stand

A fire burns in Babylon

A fire burns in Babylon

Your world will burn

    General CommentYea this song is ridiculous, specially with prelude to disaster played right before it. Makes it so much cooler. Anyway, This song is about Iraq, and probably the war. Babylon was a biblical refrence to the country we now call Iraq, and much of the dark armeggedon imagery in this song seems to be a reaction against the war there.

    General CommentBabylon is not Iraq. It's North America, and the fire that will "wipe away the cities’ lies" is the "burning flame of Jah" (Jesus).
