lyrics

I’m formed from the essence of gods and demons alike.
But I chose to be neither. So here I'm bound.
I saw the dawn of man, I witnessed (the) birth of soil.
But I neither chose to be wise, nor an ignorant fool.

I viewed tyrants with crowns, fell and rose before me.
But I chose not to be a master, nor a slave I be. So,
I chose the gifts of earth, secrets of the herbs.
So I chose solitude, and lengthy tunes.

My bride, she is (the) most precious harvest I've reaped.
She was (the) jolliest crop the earth has given.

No, I don’t want your gold.
I don’t need nothing, truth be told.
In this mountain we live in peace.
Get the hell out (of) my fields!
No, I won't let her go.
Don't you dare touch my babe blue, no.
Take the weed you can carry and,
Get the fuck out (of) my fields!

He stepped to my virgin soils, and he boils with vanity.
Oh, he killed my buzz on the fly, scourge of humanity.
He (was) born in wealth and might, he witnessed (his) people starve.
But he chose greed and vice, he chose the lies.

My foe, he is (the) most bragging bastard I’ve seen.
He was (the) filthiest soul the gods have given.

No, I don’t want your gold.
I don’t need nothing, truth be told.
In this mountain we live in peace.
Get the hell out (of) my fields!
No, I won't let her go.
Don't you dare touch my babe blue, no.
Take the weed you can carry and,
Get the fuck out (of) my fields!

I strike, as he touched her, and Babylon prevailed.
A swing, through my neck, and Babylon prevailed.
She watched, with no tears, and Babylon prevailed.
I lay, with no feels, so Babylon prevails.

Man is cursed, with lust, as Babylon prevailed.
Woman is cursed, with distrust, as Babylon prevailed.
Deception, Oppression, as Babylon prevailed.
Thus, for thousands of years, will Babylon prevail.
