P.o.d. – Breathe Babylon lyrics


Babylon Breathe Babylon
I see you people babylon and on and on
Graven images, golden idols and false icons
But my antenae keeps on picking up evil transmissions
I'm seeking wisdom like Solomon
At headquarters I receive my mission
So I analyze my weapons, laser guided rifles that shoot spiritual wisdom
I think I see enemy warriors,
Blow up the ruler of the air like nuclear fission
Fragile heathens tryin' to run stuff like mayors
So with brotha's that snuff punks,

I set up time bombs to destroy the strong holds of Babylon

We be tribes under grace, a righteous minority
Babylon Breathe Babylon
Back down by the movement, soldiers who will serve ya
Open to be used by God, destroy you like Medo-Persia
Decadent culture make you forget your spiritual priority
Guilty of all crimes I be like the great Prophet Isiah
Jewel of all kingdoms, live evil, purified Hurrah take you down
Don't look back, overthrown you like Sodom and Gomorrah arm of the law
Predict your fall over 150 times, got rhymes you could never use
Present day Iraq still lies in ruins lies,
For the purpose you be using, I'll dance over your fields
Schemes, backstab persuasions bumrushed
Get crushed by us, this rescue invasion


The shadow is coming, the shadow is coming
Look to the sky, heed the warning

The plagues are coming, the plagues are coming
I feel the breath of the Death Beast
I gotta steel pulse, looking for a true democracy

Misled bureaucracy, full of hypocrisy
Destruction, now your walls have fallen
Just sitting here waiting for the train to Zion
The city has fallen, she has fallen golden images of it's god

Lie shattered on the groundsit down in the dust, Babylon without a throne to call your own is 47: 1
