For Your Time

lyrics

Babylon, the cradle of our time
Soldiers fight for the right to march in line
Glass is made from sand and sun and lime
Am I right, am I right for your time?
Am I right, am I right for your time?

I saw Alexander raging on the seas,
A mighty Colossus cut down at the knees
Tell me how can you suffer such as these
When our wings turn to dust in the breeze?
I saw Alexander shining in the sun,
Standing tall with boats and armies on the run
There's a camel struggling in the needle's eye
Am I right, am I right for your time?

I'm going to come home on my shield,
Or I'm not coming home at all
I'm going to come home on my shield,
When the righteous fall

I saw Cleopatra floating down the Nile.
I said, "Hey, won't you share your kingdom with me for awhile."
We rested easy in a city built by slaves,
While the truth hid in mountaintops and caves
While the truth hid in mountaintops and caves
