Tower of Babel
c. C. Aiken 2010

lyrics

We never left, we never learned
a universal language
before the code book burned

I see lips move, but nothing is said
'cept politics mean money mean power
so say the talking heads

All we have is gossip of the ages
history and it's rewritten pages
are we safe in our mental cages?

On the tower of Babel
who wants to know
how high we built this tower
and how far down left to go

Keep me in the dark, I wanna stay asleep
Silence is golden and talk is cheap

How many masters, how many lives
does it take to feed the monster
before it's satisfied?

Listen can't you hear the motor humming
Yea, the countdown is up and running
chained to the machine we're so so stunning

On the tower of Babel
who wants to know
how high we built this tower
and how far down left to go
