John Trudell - Voices Catching Up/Lompoc Song lyrics

Last rush in Babylon Voices catching up, voices catching up Watch out child, watch out child Babylon falling down falling down Society a broken promise Economies war citizen who*es Political pimps Leaving us flat on our backs Trading today Waiting for the promised land Roles playing roles Covering every days fear Going off to work Having the job done on us In the eyes of God Building the bomb Loving thyself hating thyself In the illusion Voices catching up, voices catching up Watch out child, watch out child Babylon falling down, falling down Caligula laughs loudly through time Twisting love to get at the s**es Cla** is material consumed Designer worlds Create electric impulses Turning down life the real goodbye See it in our face, see it every place Last rush in Babylon Voices catching up, voices catching up Watch out child, watch out child Babylon falling down, falling down Arms Race Jacks boots pounding earth Military precision Dissecting elements of life Taking apart instead of healing Generals and Gods Fascists and oil wells Man images and machines Petrochemical societies Trying to hide the sun Jack boots pounding earth Creaking leather boots Dead cows crying In a world turned To a planetary slaughterhouse Wandering amongst the opulence Wondering what not to touch Times not knowing time getting bit Times of temptation times of seduction Wandering in the poverty Touched by everything Knowing the bite No time for temptation Only time for doing Babylon in terror World run over by machines The economics of captured dreams The rich are the poorer While the poor are waiting Everyone pretending to live Calling exploitation progress Calling submission freedom Calling madness profit Calling earth a plan et Plaguing her with civilization Alone We see you in your loneliness Sometimes we wonder which is lonelier Being along together or being lonely alone With no protection that you know of Principles replaced by nothing The lies becoming desperation Outrageous violence Internal and external Forming distractions from life Making the loneliness A new type of alone Alone with your machines Alone with your fear Alone with your oppressor Alone with roles played Alone from the past Alone from the future Stranded in the universe Separated from earth sun moon sky With only God to comfort you While he sanctions war and greed Messengers clubbing you Heavenly threats and promises A basis for exploitation or everything Even yourself Giving up together Surrendering Alone
