babylon lyrics – edwin mccain

yeah…
in a world of hate pollution
we can’t breathe anymore
we’ve to leave and this time
you the p*wn have won

on our quest for nowhere island
we set off to the sea
you call surrender what we call
a calm before the storm

pounding thoughts of home
they make me know:
i will return! i don’t live my life for you,
it’s too short to get burned.
stand upright and face the wind!

time to go back where i belong…
no one can prevent me from
raising towers in babylon

time to go back where i belong…
no one can accuse me
for i do not fear babylon

you only can love me if you can convert me
to att*tudes of your brain
you blame us for doing things
that you don’t know

you tell me what you’d do if you were me
but you are you and i am i
lucky you, but this time i say: “no!”

pounding thoughts of home
they make me know: “i will return!”
i don’t want to hurt you
but you’ll have to learn:
you are you and i am i!

time to go back where i belong…
no one can prevent me from
raising towers in babylon

time to go back where i belong…
no one can accuse me
for i do not fear babylon

yeah…

time to go back where i belong…
no one can prevent me from
raising towers in babylon

time to go back where i belong…
no one can accuse me
for i do not fear babylon
