Black Spring

Who are the lions
That prowl in the desert
Burning the wheel of the stars?
Who are these dead men
Asleep in their houses
Watching the storm from afar?
In the hanging gardens
An eye for an eye
In the hanging gardens
Light up the sky
Blow out the Sun
Light up the sky
Blow out the Sun
This is Babylon falling
This is Bethlehem calling
This is your world going down
La la la la La la la la
Only ruins last forever
La la la la La la la la
Only ruins last forever
See how the merchants
Have taken the Temple
Haggling over the Crown
Where is your Jesus
To turn back the tables?
Where is the Rose of the Throne?
In the hanging gardens
An eye for an eye
In the hanging garden
Light up the sky
Blow out the Sun…
The writing's in blood on the wall
The heads of gold
On the threshing floor
The towers of bronze
Smashed into dust
Smashed into dust
The iron of empire
Turning to rust
