rebel against the kings of babylon
they got their swords & their spears & their bows & their knives
but we’re fighting with our brothers and our sisters for our lives
rebel against the kings of babylon

God made man, and man made kings
and the kings rule men and they bring the suffering
when the people rise up they see it as defiant
they wanna have control so you can’t be self–reliant
if you play your role and don’t get out of line
if you sell your soul they will buy it for a dime
and sell it for a dollar so they can turn a profit
it’s a vicious cycle and the only way to stop it:

they run the drugs so they make all the money
that they’re busy printin’ up like a bee makin’ honey
they hide in the shadows, call themselves enlightened
while all the people’s shackles are slowly getting tightened
if we’re not locked up we’re starving in the streets
full bellies getting’ fat while the weak are getting weaker
politicians out to line their pockets
it’s a vicious cycle and the only way to stop it:

conquer the system of control
violent and tyrannical
it’s a radical overthrow
it’ll happen again like it’s happened before
