A Silver Mt Zion – Babylon was built on Fire

CAPO : 4

Intro:   Em     C     Am     Em     C     G

 Em                  C       Am
Babylon was built on fire
Em                      C                   G
and the bones of useless machines 
It hurts to breathe 
and you fell away from me… 

Packs of helicopters divide 
across a crowded sky 
What angels did you ride 
as I staggered at your side…

Babylon was built on fire
and the bones of useless machines 
It hurts to breathe 
and you fell away from me…

Am     E     C     E
Am     E     C     E

1st voice
Citizens in their homes 
Missiles in their holes 
 
2nd voice
The brightest lights I ever saw 
Across an empty parking lot
No stars

3rd voice
This highway needs rain
across both of its lanes
until all that remains
is this heart and its flames
and the rumble of trains
Beneath a handful of stars
