Babylon's burning With anxiety You'll burn as your work You'll burn at your play smouldering With ignorance and hate And with anxiety Babylon's burning Babylon's burning With anxiety Babylon's burning Babylon's burning Babylon's burning, baby Can't you see? Babylon's burning With anxiety Babylon's burning Babylon's burning Babylon is... burning Babylon's burning Babylon's burning Babylon's burning
