WALKING TO BABYLON
Angel City


[Spoken] Wrapped in a bloody sheet
The squalling brat is carried onto the balcony and shown to the people with a ringing of bells
And it was war
And it had a thousand fathers
Now there's blood on the streets again!

When the sun goes down,
You walk the streets
Live in shadows
Feel no peace

Lock the back doors
Close your eyes
You seen it all before

You know it's a sin
Say it's a sin!
People say it's the law
Who knows why
When the bullets fly
The beggars beg for more

(Chorus)
You know I'm walking to Babylon
Walking to Babylon (x3)

Talk black priest says:
"Let us pray"
Bad man comes for wicked ways
Take a firm hold
Steel your nerves
Don't listen anymore

You know it's a sin
Say it's sin!
People say it's the law
Who knows why when the bullets fly
The beggars beg for more

You know I'm walking to Babylon
Walking to Babylon (x3)

[Spoken] When the time had come she withdrew into her innermost chambers and surrounded herself with doctors and soothsayers
In the streets the people gathered from morning until night with empty stomachs
Then great Mabel vomited and it sounded like "freedom"
And she coughed and it sounded like "justice"
And there's blood on the streets again!
