Charming, someone to fear
Handsome, very much here
Evil, dancing through fire
Whore of Babylon, world famous clear

Something to charm
Danger, someone to harm
Falling into the mire
Climbing, higher and higher

Someone to fear
Handsome, very much here
Evil, dancing through fire
Whore of Babylon, world famous clear

Ivory tower
Longing for something now
Waiting, hour after hour
Give me some of your power

Citadel, a prison of sorts
Only the rich make the laws
Using repression and force
Whore of Babylon, City of Quartz

Someone to fear
Hidden and very much here
Hatred summoned so near
Whore of Babylon, world famous clear

Songwriters
BRION, JON/FAITHFULL, MARIANNE
