    Well I'm down here in the well
    Looking back up at the hill
    Well I thank heavens I fell
    Must look more
    like myself
    Now everyone is so kind
    Everyone looks like
    a long lost friend of mine
    I'm on top of the world again
    When I'm looking
    up from under Babylon

    I had a home in the fields
    Earned my wage in the factories there
    And I was raised by the mill
    And I worked with my brothers there
    I told my mother I'd always write
    I headed west for the coast
    with the big city lights
    Now mamma I'm so sorry I've forgotten
    But now I'm looking
    up from under Babylon

    Now tell me how far I've been
    And how deep was I in
    Tell me how I conceived
    The vanity to believe
    That I would not be outnumbered
    By the thumbs I have been under

    Now stray dogs in the street
    Learn how to beg, steal, borrow and cheat
    And in the dead summer heat
    I fell asleep with blood on my teeth

    But those days before I met you girl
    Were just ice cream falling down
    on the shoes of my world
    I'm so happy that you're my friend
    When we're looking
    up from under Babylon

    When we're looking
    up from under Babylon
