lyrics

I'm not going back to Babylon
The son of the morning waits for me
You can come by
Any time you like
But I'm not so free

I won't surrender to the neon signs
They take my money
And they take the moon
Hidden behind the red horizon line
I'm sailing soon

Look not behind you at the setting sun
They say she's called the misery by the sea
Her shining lights look better
From the mountainside
Where I can breathe

I'm not going back to Babylon
Where in the streets all night I might abide
We can reach the heavens
Without scraping the sky
We'll get by
I feel alright
