As war drums beat in Babylon
Cinnamon Girl starts 2 pray
Eye never heard a prayer like this one
Never b4 that day

Tearful words of love 4 people
She had never met b4
Asking God 2 grant them mercy
In this face of a holy war

Cinnamon Girl
Cinnamon Girl

Cinnamon Girl of mixed heritage
Never knew the meaning of color lines
9/11 turned that all around
When she got accused of this crime

So began the mass illusion
War on terror alibi
What's the use when the god of confusion
Keeps on telling the same lie?

Cinnamon Girl
Cinnamon Girl

Don't cry, don't shed no tears
One lie won't make us feel
'Cause we know how
This movie's ending

Cinnamon Girl

As war drums beat in Babylon
And scorch the blood red sky
Militants bomb the 4eign guns
Both sides - children die

Cinnamon girl opens the book
She knows will settle all the scores
Then she prays: after the war
That there will not b anymore

Cinnamon Girl
Cinnamon Girl
Cinnamon Girl
Cinnamon Girl
