1. THE QUEENS OF BABYLON

THE QUEENS OF BABYLON
THEY SERVE THEIR TIME
& THEN MOVE ON
& THEY MOVE THROUGH
& DO FOR YOU
JUST WHAT YOU KNOW
THEY GOTTA DO

THE QUEENS OF BABYLON
FROM PANDORA’S PLAYHOUSE
BABBLE ON
ABOUT THE BOYS THEY BREAK
SO THAT THE BEARDS CAN GROW
FROM ALL THE MEN THEY MAKE

THE QUEENS OF BABYLON
THEY GO TO WORK
WITH STOCKINGS ON
& TAKE THE POWER
FROM THE PEOPLE
& SELL IT BACK
WITH RIBBONS ON

THE QUEENS OF BABYLON
WEAR LINGERIE
MOST OF THE DAY
BECAUSE THEY SAY
IT MAKES THEM PAY
MORE ATTENTION
TO THE TENSION

THE QUEENS OF BABYLON
LIKE GETTING SHOT
WITH CUPID’S ARROW
SO HE’LL HAVE SOME
WORK TOMORROW
& WON’T HAVE TO
BEG, STEAL, OR BORROW

THE NUNS OF GAVARONE
THEY SHOOT THE
‘GUNS OF NAVARONE’
SO THAT ALL THE
CROOKS & NANNIES
CAN FIND ALL THE
NOOKS & CRANNIES

Said The Queen Of The Mayans;
“What’s Mayan, Is Yours
& If You Ain’t A Mayan,
You Ain’t Really A-Tryin’ “

THE QUEENS OF BABYLON
MAKE SACRIFICES FOR THE
JOHNS & ALL THE JILLS
WHOSE OVERKILL
IS UNDERFED &
OFF THE PILL

THE QUEENS OF BABYLON
THEY PAY THEIR TAXES
TO THE DAWN
TO HELP THE AXIS
CARRY ON &
SHARE THE LOVE
BEFORE IT’S GONE

THE QUEENS OF BABYLON
THEIR GAMES OF CHESS
DEPEND UPON A
BISHOP FANTASIZING
OR A KING REALIZING
EVERYTHING

THE KINGS OF AVALON
THEY GOT A SWEET TOOTH
FOR DESTRUCTION &

4. DON’T LEAVE ME HERE!

DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN
JUST DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN
PANDORA PROMISED ME
THAT PEGASUS WOULD BE FREE
DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN!

These People Are Mad
& I Don’t Understand
A Word They Say

And They Don’t Look
Like They Were Waiting
For Me Anyway

I Can’t Tell You Why
That I a Don’t Feel
At Home Day Or Night

I Just Wanna Walk
Into A Place Where
I Don’t Have To Fight

Just Don’t Leave Me a Here On My Own!

DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN
DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN
PANDORA PROMISED ME
THAT PEGASUS WOULD BE FREE

SO DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN!

A Spaceman
Was In My Plans
When I Was Holding
Hands & Young

I Never Changed
My Mind
I Just Fell In Line
& Bit My Tongue

Sympathy’s Hard
To Find Unless
You’re Free Of Sanity

And My Memory
Has Forgotten
To Remember Me

Just Don’t Leave Me Here On My Own!

DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN
I SAID: “DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN”
PANDORA PROMISED ME
THAT PEGASUS WOULD ALWAYS
BE FREE

SO DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN!

I Once Had A Dream
Where Everything
Was Not As It
Would Seem

The Mountains
Were Swept Away
By Things We Said
But Didn’t Mean

The Camels Were Crossing
All The Deserts In A Caravan

The Nomads Were Mad
That No One Was As Mad
As Another Man

Just Don’t Leave Me Here On My Own!

DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN
JUST DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN
PANDORA PROMISED ME
THAT LOVE WAS A MATTER
OF MYSTERY

SO DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN
JUST DON’T LEAVE ME HERE ON MY OWN
Don’t Leave Me Here On My Own
Don’t Leave Me Here On My Own....
