Story behind the song
This song came about during a tough time, when I needed something to get me past feeling empty
Lyrics
Tell me that everything’s okay life has never looked so strange on the TV there’s nothing much left to say but we leave it on just the same when hope went up in a cloud of smoke and the hearts of a million mothers broke and I— fools want a reason for it all, the day that babylon falls. life is cancelled in the world of falling rain but I get up early and take a shower just the same and I laugh out loud when I think that this might all just be a game and I listen to a childhood dying when hope went up in a cloud of smoke and the hearts of a million mothers broke and I— fools want a reason for it all, the day that babylon falls. and the TV station drones on, to the tune of amazing grace ‘how sweet the sound’ can’t save the lost, or put a wretch in his place so the people buy their groceries, to fill the empty space alone they walk along the way; just like any other day when hope went up in a cloud of smoke and the hearts of a million mothers broke and I— fools want a reason for it all, the day that babylon falls… away.
