      About "Babel"

      Lyrics for Mumford & Sons - "Babel"

      I know the time has numbered my days,
      And I'll go along with everything you say
      But I'll ride home laughing, look at me now,
      For the walls of my tower they come crumbling down
      And my ears hear the call of my unborn sons,
      And I know the choices color all I've done
      But I'll explain it all to the watchman's son,
      I ain't ever lived a year better spent in love

      'Cause I know my weakness, know my voice
      And I'll believe in grace and choice
      And I know perhaps my heart is fast
      But I'll be born without a mask

      Like the city that nurtured my greed and my pride,
      I stretched my arms into the sky
      I cry Babel, Babel, look at me now
      For the walls of my tower they come crumbling down
      You ask where will we stand in the winds that will howl
      Is all we see we'll slipping to the cloud?
      So come down from your mountain and stand where we've been
      You know our breath is weak and our body thin

      Press my nose up to the glass around your heart
      I should've known I was weaker from the start
      You'll build your walls, and I will play my bloody part
      To tear, tear them down
      Well I'm gonna tear, tear them down

      'Cause I know my weakness, know my voice
      And I'll believe in grace and choice
      And I know perhaps my heart is fast
      But I'll be born without a mask
