Chroming Rose - Babylon lyrics

In the Orient there once was a cry – Babylon
Founded in 3000BC, with a fast growing strength
It survived several wars, many kings ruled in it's walls
A glorious place that was erupting with great power and might

They wanted to be equal to their gods
Marduk was one of them
They wanted to reach from the sky
To see the life of a god
A tower would be made; an instrument for them to have a look into heaven
So it's written down, the tower is a fact something has to be true

Babylon, a legend that will never die
Babylon, a warning for everyone who wants to reach the sky

Years later they have reached a level around 300 feer
The gods did not approve of their peoples deeds
They punished them and gave'em different languages, so they
Couldn't talk to each other
This was the consequence of being arrogant and proud
Maybe we can learn a lesson from it

Babylon, a legend that will never die
Babylon, a warning for everyone who wants to reach the sky

Stone on stone – step by step – ever forever
But never, no never, never higher and higher
And higher and higher and higher and higher

Babylon, a legend that will never die
Babylon, a warning for everyone who wants to reach the sky
