The Sirens

I hear the sirens from over the hill
Tell me why I’m a wanted man with a name to kill
Behind me, fire in the town and smoke in the fields
Don’t know why I’m running, why I’m running still
I’ll keep my eyes straight up towards the sun
Oh I can’t help smiling whilst I run
See the fighting’s been raging since all the world was young
But now the time
The time
The time has come
Hear them cry baba baba Babylon
Hear them cry baba baba Babylon
I’ll weep and cry it off when this day is done
I’ll bid farewell to the demons, bid farewell to their guns
Gone now the valleys and homes overrun
Quiet rebellion in the eyes in everyone
Still hear them cry baba baba Babylon
Hear them cry baba baba Babylon
