Babylon
   ------Edwin McCain

well sweetness, I love it when you wrap me up
I'm a drowning man for the third time
twenty-one gun salute in your flag of mercy
preparing my body for a burial at sea

so put your tongue in my ear
through this veil of tears
whisper what's gone wrong? gone wrong?
the world, the world she's a Babylon

coming in from the coast it's a bad nor'easter
waves banging rocks with migraine vengeance
build up the tower, unlocking the secrets
the pride of man is so contentious

<chorus>

this is no pleasure cruise in the South Pacific
I'm bailing ice water up to my neck
Titanic's captain said that God couldn't sink her
you might say he learned a healthy respect

<chorus>
