lyrics

Babylon
©2004 Henry Boy Jenkins

[hear no evil / see no evil / speak no evil babble...]

Is that you
Wearing the cheap disguise
Is that you
Hiding behind those eyes

Is it me
Pretending that I can’t see
Your secret identity
How could I be so naive

Is that you
Planning your getaway
Is that you
Running through what to say

Is it me
Perpetural absentee
Afraid of who I might be
If I were the one to leave

It’s all been said a million ways before
But I don’t wannna hear it anymore

Babble on and on and on and on and on and on and babble
On and on and on and on and on and on and babble on

Is that you
Covering your own tracks
Is that you
Lying to save your ass

Is it me
Willing to be deceived
Turn the other cheek
Avoiding impropriety

It’s all been said a million ways before
But I don’t wannna hear it anymore

Babble on and on and on and on and on and on and babble
On and on and on and on and on and on and babble on

Look! Up in the air
A bird, a plane
A written prayer that reads:
“Surrender Dorothy”
Tear down the walls and run with me

It’s all been said a million ways before
And I don’t wannna hear it
I don’t wannna hear it
I just don’t wannna hear it anymore
