By the waters of babylon
We lay down and wept and
Wept for these i am
We remember we remember we
Remember these i am

A golden helmet blinded minds
Among ten thousand swords
Along the road to babylon
A golden thunder silenced songs
Among ten thousand voices
On the road to babylon

Well well well, beware that golden helmet
Well well well
There's no easy way to go
Well well well
No easy road to follow
Well well well ...

A golden ocean turned to fire
And burned ten thousand ships
Along the road to babylon
Golden dreamer touched the sky
Alone in empty silence
On the road to babylon

Well well well
Beware that golden thunder
Well well well
That dreamed and sang the song
Well well well
The empty sound of sorrow

    It must be about the disposal of the nation of israel to babylon. At least the background story. Like in psalm 137
