Quicksilver Messenger Service – Pride Of Man lyrics

Turn around, go back down, back the way you came,
Can't you see that flash of fire ten times brighter than the day?
And behold a mighty city rich in treasure, wide in fame,
Oh God, the Pride of Man, broken in the dust again.

Turn around, go back down, back the way you came,
Babylon is laid to waste, Egypt's buried in her shame,
Their mighty men are beaten down, their kingdom's fallen in the way,
Oh God, the Pride of Man, broken in the dust again.

Turn around, go back down, back the way you came,
Terror is on every side, lo the leaders are dismayed,
For those who put their faith in fire, fire their fate shall be repaid,
Oh God, the Pride of Man, broken in the dust again.

Turn around, go back down, back the way you came,
Shout a warning to the nations, that the sword of God is raised.
And Babylon, that mighty city, rich in treasure, wide in fame
Shall cause thy tower fall, and make of thee a pyre of flame.

Oh thou who dwell on many waters, rich in treasure, wide in fame,
Bow unto your God of gold, thy pride of might shall be thy shame,
For only God can lead His people back unto the Earth again,
Oh God, the Pride of Man, broken in the dust again.

Thy Holy Mountain be restored, Thy mercy on Thy people,
Thy people Lord.
