(Tonio K./George Conner)
they go on and on and on
they go blah blah blah
babylon is babbling
babylon is staggering
from sunset boulevard to park avenue
to paris to peking to the pentagon
from the dawn of history on into the future
listen: clanging cymbals/noisy gongs
primitive rhythms/protest songs
opinionated idiots in charge of everything
vocabulary seems to be the opiate of the people
i've been quiet
i've been tryin' to listen
i've been listening good
but so what so what
so what if i found out?
how could i say it wordlessly?
why am i asking you?
habladuria es barato
geschwätz ist billig
kchosal schod arjon eh
parle c'est bon marché
