I see mountains of ash and brick
I see rich men, but my kids are sick
Now it's raining, I got my feet wet
Sold my guitar, to buy a TV set

Give me things that I can use
But I can't look you in the eye
I guess you don't hear the news
But when you do, you won't know why

Destroy my love, steal my homeland
I've got no pride now - I understand
My world is Babylon; deliver me
In your Cadillac infallibility


You've got a master, but he don't like me
He sent his only son, walk on the silver sea
He sent a message, I don't know what he say
He send an earthquake, to drive my blues away
