"Babylon" is a track of the Soulfly album Dark Ages, released in 2005. This song has thunderous basslines with acoustic guitar and sitar mixed in. In addition, guitarist Marc Rizzo uniquely performs vocals with Max Cavalera.
The last track, "The Dark Ages", could've been included as the ambient first part of this track instead of on separate tracks. If "Babylon" is the opening track of the album, containing "The Dark Ages" intro, it would've last 4:41 instead of 3:53.
Lightning and thunder Fear and wonder Murder and murder Chaos, disorder Hate and pain Will rise again Nothing remains Bring it on again... On and on and on and on... On and on and on and on... Inna babylon Hell on earth Like a curse War is hell Time will tell Apocalypse meets The final disease Death now creeps The enemy within... On and on and on and on... On and on and on and on... Inna babylon United nations Divided tensions Body count rises While leaders lie Desolation Separation Sufferation Confrontation On and on and on and on... On and on and on and on... Inna babylon Desolation... Annihilation... Decapitation... Seperation... Murder nation... Sufferation... Confrontation... Retaliation... Mutilation... Devastation... Confrontation... Too much tension... On and on and on and on... On and on and on and on... Inna Babylon
