about

Semi-fictional story of a guy that cant find acceptance with his family.

lyrics

Intro G G G G
G
There was a new moon, hiding in the sky
D G
So he put it on his sleeve for everyone to see.
G
He had a story, not a pretty story.
D
And he whispered it, to all his family.
G
When there was nothing left he drove out to the cliffs and pushed it over
D
Then he lit a match and laid it on the edge.

CHORUS
C D G
Walking down the street one day.
C D G
You could tell something was going on.
C D G
Think I’ll go down to the station,
G D
and wave goodbye to all your Babylon Frustration.
Fill over intro G G G G
And with a head full of redemption and a belly full of pills.
He wrapped up in a blanket and passed out in the hills.
He had a good dream, bathed in normalcy.
And his family was proud and everyone agreed.
That now his story, was such a pretty story.
That they should make a film and sell it on TV
CHORUS
Fill G G D D
And now there’s no moon shining in the sky,
Till it crawled up off his sleeve for everyone to see.
Chorus
Tag
and we can wave goodbye to all your Babylon Frustration. Babylon Frustration
