    LYRICS:
    City of colours, Babylon
    The followers of Ishtar
    Move with bells and silver
    Above the noise
       
    Above the curving stairway of the tower
    In the cool of shadow and stone  
    The dreamer of the city, Belteshazzar
    Sits by his open window  
       
    Morning traders calling  
    The sun beats down on the square
    People buying, selling, dealing  
       
    Over the bridge lies the desert  
    He sees for miles  
    Watching the slow journeys  
    Facing Jerusalem  
       
    Servants lean on the gates of the palace
    The camels in the courtyard roll their eyes
    Hands move in the shadows with a glint of rubies
    Cast a horoscope for a couple of coins
       
    Idling past the city  
    The Euphrates  
    Today the ships are flagging  
    The bags of the sails hang empty
       
    The King returns in a cloud of dust
    The gate swings open, the camels snap to attention
    Even the wind picks up, joins the people watching,
    Tugging sleeves and shawls, jostling the crowd
       
    Behind the veil, guarded by angels  
    Watching the priestesses with their silver and bells
    Watching the slow journeys in the city of colours
    Guarded by winged figures  
       
    Belteshazzar
