Turn around,
Go back down,
Back the way you came,
Can't you see that flash of fire ten times brighter than the day?

And behold a mighty city broken in the dust again,
Oh God, Pride of Man, broken in the dust again.
Turn around,
Go back down,

Back the way you came,
Babylon is laid to waste, Egypt's buried in her shame,
The mighty men are all beaten down, their kings are fallen in the ways,
Oh God, Pride of Man, broken in the dust again.
