The music and lyrics of

Wires and Watchtowers
By Thievery Corporation

Now how can the wicked smile while the world is burning?
How can they turn their eyes and walk away?
How can the blue bloods hide while brothers killing brothers?
Why do they divide I and I for diamonds and gold?
The dreams of children they float to the sky
And wires and watchtowers can’t bring their demise
Tell me, why, oh, why are we so blind?
The treasures of love lay buried inside
Tell me, why, oh, why do we deny?
The chains of Babylon are all in our mind
The murderers clouds can’t keep the sun from shining
The wind of Jah will scatter them away
The murderers clouds can’t keep the sun from shining
Jah will scatter he who has no shame
The dreams of children they float to the sky
And wires and watchtowers can’t bring their demise
Tell me, why, oh, why are we so blind?
The treasures of love lay buried inside
Tell me, why, oh, why do we deny?
The chains of Babylon are all in our mind
Why, oh, why?
Tell me, why, oh, why are we so blind?
The treasures of love lay buried inside
Tell me, why, oh, why do we deny?
The chains of Babylon are all in our mind
