Babylon Puppet Show

 

Words & Music: Bobby Shiflett

I heard the roar of the lion
Calling me to his side
I went to the gate of the city
And asked the watchman to step aside
He sent word to his captain
The captain whispered to the king
The king sent his collectors
To put a tax on my suffering

When it’s time for leaving, we pack our things and go
It’s better than believing, the Babylon puppet show

My neighbor saw my dilemma
And joined me at my side
We went to the gate of the city
And told the watchman to step aside
He sent word to his captain
The captain whispered to the king
The king sent his ministers
To collect another offering

When it’s time for leaving, we pack our things and go
It’s better than believing, the Babylon puppet show

The people heard the commotion
And joined us at our side
We went to the gate of the city
To demand the watchman to step aside
He sent word to his captain
The captain frightened the king
The king sent all of his soldiers
To put down the uprising

When it’s time for leaving, we pack our things and go
It’s better than believing, the Babylon puppet show
