Don't you see that tower growing
Up into the sky?
A tower of immoderation
Is growing much too high
All that greed for more 'n' higher
A burst of a natural flame
A tower based on sick foundations
Same old evil game

Tumbling tower
High-growing flower
Youth on fire


"This is the sickness of high civilization
Economy towers and business-temples
Out of the towers; out of the town
Lest you take part in its fraud
For her sins are heaped high as heaven"

And don't you see that flower growing
Within a peaceful law
The beauty such a modesty
Can teach us how to grow
And what about our wretched being?
About our ruthless life?
For every artificial dirt
We sold our mothers life

Tumbling tower
High-growing flower
Youth on fire


I pray the Lord my soul to keep
While Babylon will fall
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
Can't you hear me call?

Tumbling tower
High-growing flower
Youth on fire


Feel the burning of a new generation
The heat of a fiery youth
A cleaning fire down from heaven
Shall free the hidden truth
Heaven knows we're holding on
'Cause it seems were blessed
We are meant to stay alive
And I swear to do my best

Tumbling tower
High-growing flower
Youth on fire
