I remember the first night I came here
I remember the cold outside
I remember the smiling faces
I remember the nursery rhymes
This is what you get boy
This is what you get
Better learn how to run boy
Better learn how to run and now in a hole

I remember a big white bedroom
With a barbed wire angel asleep
I remember a common foot soldier
Wallpaper made of dreams
I saw a pale imitation
Of whatever was meant to be
I saw a vague silhouette
Something that was to be me in a hole

I remember a Babylon burning boy
I remember a black tongue talking
I remember a dirty smell
I remember silent Sundays
I remember the fear I felt

That's why I learned how to smile boy
That's why I learned how to smile
That's why I learned how to smile boy
That's why I learned how to smile

I remember the meat train coming
I saw the chain gangs pass
I remember winners and losers
All wear the same masque

Hole

I remember a Babylon burning boy
I remember a Babylon burning boy

Run run run run you better
Run run cause the bullets hard
Run run you better run boy
Cause the bullet will hit you hard
Run run cause the future is coming
Run run cause the future is here
Run run cause the future is coming
Run run cause the future is here in a hole

I remember a Babylon burning in hell
I remember a Babylon burning in hell

Don't send me no photos of it
Don't send me no letters no
There's really no need to remind me
There's really no need at all
Cause nobody knows any answers
No nobody knows any thoughts
Everybody is good and evil
Everybody is good and bad in a hole

I remember a Babylon burning boy
I remember a Babylon burning boy
I remember a Babylon burning boy
I remember a Babylon burning boy
I remember it as a black mark
I remember it clear as mud
I remember the questions I had
And things I never understood

    General Commentok so, not only do i add the song, i see nobody has commented it in 2 months, so i will. apparently im about the only person on the face of the planet that listens to this band. anyways, if anyone ever reads this, i think this song is about growing up in a war torn society, and the child is doomed to growing up and having to be apart of this never ending fight. idk, that totally doesnt make sense either, thats y i was hoping someone could comment and give me a second view on the song.
