Well I came to see, and what I found was not alright with me
Their desperation, some vocation, and it'd been the same thing all along
Goodbye Babylon, goodbye Babylon, goodbye Babylon

Now I know times are changin, and the people need rearrangin
So now, it's written here in song
Goodbye Babylon, goodbye Babylon, goodbye Babylon, goodbye

Now our boys, the fallin, our leaders are all appallin
And you can bet by God, good will is gone
Goodbye Babylon, goodbye Babylon, oh goodbye Babylon, goodbye Babylon

    This song is about the war in Iraq. In 2003, U.S base "Camp Alpha" was built on top of ancient Babylonian ruins.
