I don't wanna' weep like a fallen angel
I don't wanna' cry bitter tears as I fall and kiss the ground
I don't wanna' lie in the arms of strangers
Any minute now could be the last one that you know
Your enemy's deceit and betrayal
Your enemy will masquerade as an angel of light
I don't wanna' rage and lose the battle
Take comfort in the dark underneath a canopy of lies

This is the rise and fall
The rise and fall
The rise and fall of Babylon

Haunted in the graveyard of the forest
Through the concrete canyons and the pock marks of the earth
Drunk upon the fruit of the sweet deception
Look upon the destiny of the secular world
Will anybody hear her cry for mercy
Will anybody hear her cry in the rivers of blood?

Surely goodness and mercy will follow

Who is there like Jonah in the whale
Who is there to call upon us mercy from above?
Now the fields are dry and the flocks be barren
The children cry for want the philosophies have failed
Oh that I might rest in the day of trouble
My knees are trembling for the finger on the wall
