The Tower of Babel

As it grew taller and taller every day, from each floor to floor
As the progress went on and on our ambition grew greater and greater
Yes we had times when we believed that we’ll reach the summit of the earth
But who knew our ambition was nothing but a lousy and reckless defiance and a curse
 
Who would forget that day of judgment and His sacred hand
Just how foolish we were facing the salvation and did we not understand?
Now I know how arrogant and snobbish we were trying to oppose the absolute
Oh, now I know we shall live for nothing but for thy given vocation and go the right route
 
We tried to speak through mouth but nothing came out
It was the simple perplexity that caused the bluster
We fretted and fumed trying to say the unintelligible word
But nothing came out but an empty sound
 
Even today, alas, we regret the day
We weren’t aware and we stayed up all night with pray
I am sorry my son for letting you face the utter confusion
Oh my Lord, forgive us and convince us that it was all just a delusion
