Alas, Dear Babylon

One hundred billion dollars wasted in Babylon

Two hundred thousand lives lost in battles gone

Do you remember where you were the day the towers fell

The day the earth stood still and we spiraled into hell

Anthrax hidden mail and death blazing in the sky

Soldiers being deployed and scared children cry

Shooting down the Taliban while Bin Ladens on the lamb

While every citizen of the west claims they are too an American

We got too self-assured and or trust was so blind

We did not know this was a war of a different kind

We all responded in one unifying voice
There is no other option, no other choice

Lets start the tanks, prepare the crusade

And submerge the world in the twilight of the apocalyptic age

My friends, my dear friends the Day of Judgment is at hand

Now will every good Patriot please stand?

Against the evil emanating from the land of sword and sand

Lets take the cross, rally up the war cry

Tooth for a tooth, eye for an eye
My brothers and my sisters march with me
Lets bring the guns of freedom from sea to sea

Brick by brick, stone by stone we will build upon these ruins

And the sins of this land we will atone

All we most do is sacrifice a little of our own flesh and bone

One hundred billion dollars wasted in Babylon

Two hundred thousand lives lost in battles gone

Leaving us alone with the question, where did we go so wrong?
