For Whom The Babylon Tolls

J M S wrote a show for TV one day
Called it Babylon 5

Station One Station Two and yes Station Three
Were there for a while but were just not meant to be

5 miles long and its made of blood and steel
All the aliens live inside

Babylon 5 still alive through the Shadow War
Londo insane from the pain he’s the shadows whore

The Babylon 5 show
5 seasons long
The Babylon 5 show

Shadows appear in the sky now its time to cry
Its the last thing you see

Babylon 4 was no more then appears in the sky
There to serve as a beacon for all who have died

Sinclair now from the past became a Minbari
Valen he is now called

Now its done now its gone no more new shows to see
I guess we’ll see more Babylon 5 on DVD

The Babylon 5 show
5 seasons long
The Babylon 5 show

new lyrics Written by Chuck Silver
parody of “For Whom The Bell Tolls” by Metallica

    I went to iTunes to check this out and it’s not available there: – ( Boo!

    • Why “boo”? The albums and songs are available for purchase and download through their website.

      Plus, I thought it was close to impossible for indie bands to get listed in iTunes, and one of the big reasons the Funny Music Project and CD Baby are around, to fill that purchasing option void.

  2. Listened too Episodes 81 and 82 today (still catching up, which has been made worse as I’m now listening to other shows from the Far Point empire!). Not a parody, but who did that “Five Years of Babylon 5 in Five Minutes” song at the end of 82? Acoustic, live audience–that I’d love to buy!

    Heard about? I have one from each printing, its on my ipod
    and have signatures to boot! It may not be grammy quality, but it’s a fun listen. My kids really love Andreas’ songs.
