Tower of Babel

Am    C7     G#m6(b5)/C      C
Snow, cement and ivory young towers
F/A     G/B       C
Someone called us Babylon
     G#m(b6) Am
Those hungry hunters
F                 G/D   /E /F   /G /A 
Tracking down the hours

Eb/Bb                              Bb
But where were all your shoulders when we cried
         Ab6             G7
Were the darlings on the sideline
         Cm
Dreaming up such cherished lies
  F/A                             Bb   Cm7  Bb/D  Cm7 Bb/D
To whisper in your ear before you die

Eb         Eb/G                     Ab       Bb
It's party time for the guys in the tower of Babel
Cm         Ab6       Eb/Bb     Bb  
Sodom meet Gomorrah, Cain meet Abel
/D /Eb Fm   Cm   
Have a ball y'all
        Ab6
See the letches crawl
         G7                   Cm
With the call girls under the table
                     Ab
Watch them dig their graves
Eb/Bb                       Bb
`Cause Jesus don't save the guys
                Cm  /B Ab
In the tower of Babel
                     Eb/Bb
Watch them dig their graves
                           Bb
`Cause Jesus don't save the guys
                Cm6    Cm Bb/D Eb
In the tower of Babel, no no   no

E A F G Am Dm E

Junk, angel, this closet's always stacked
The dealers in the basement
Filling your prescription
For a brand new heart attack

But where were all your shoulders when we cried
Were the doctors in attendance
Saying how they felt so sick inside
Or was it just the scalpel blade that lied
