The Barbarians

The Barbarians

The Barbarians was the final addition to the album. It is about the death of innocence. Youth spoiled by the industry of war.

Children with their toys of war
Birthright of death with a fiery breath
Funeral of innocence
Painted up in red and dressed in lead

(Pre chorus)

Are we prisoners or renegades?
Well, I’ve done my time, whoa
Behold visions of burning skies
Alas, Babylon

Mothers of barbarians,
Were your young so spry when they left to die?

(Pre chorus)

Are we prisoners or renegades?
Well, I’ve done my time, whoa
Behold visions of burning skies
Alas, Babylon

(Bridge)

Are we prisoners or renegades?
Well, I’ve done my time, whoa
Behold visions of burning skies
Alas, Babylon
