Mr. Kokoschka, it just happened again -
they struck the museum like a hurricane.
All of our culture, it´s dead and it's gone,
from Babylon baby back to Babylon.

There´s stuff you find along the way and stuff you leave behind,
and it all in ends up as stuff that you can buy.

On ebay - from Babylon back to Babylon.
On ebay - from Babylon back to Babylon.

In old Bagdhad they´re dursting off the antiques;
it's the fourteenth guernica we´ve had this week.
I got twenty-five dollars for a Persian vase.
Hold the critique. I think I´ll go large.

That stuff inside your houses and that stuff behind your eyes,
well it all ends up as stuff that you can buy.

On ebay - from Babylon back to Babylon.
On ebay - from Babylon back to Babylon.

They´re building a tower of wrappers and cans,
and now we speak in language that we all understand
t-t-t-t-t-tongue tied and starry eyed -
it´s the ancient history of old school ties.

There´s stuff dressed up as truth and then there´s stuff dressed up as lies
and it all ends up as stuff that you can buy.

On ebay - from Babylon back to Babylon.
On ebay - from Babylon back to Babylon.
On ebay - from Babylon back to Babylon.
On ebay - from Babylon back to Babylon.
