As war drums beat n Babylon, cinnamon girl starts 2 pray
I never heard a prayer like this 1, never b4 that day
Tearful words of love 4 people she had never met b4
Asking God 2 grant them mercy n this face of holy war

Cinnamon girl
Cinnamon girl

Cinnamon girl of mixed heritage never knew the meaning of color lines
9/11 turned that all around when she got accused of this crime
So began the mass illusion war on terror alibi
What's the use when the god of confusion keeps on tellin' the same lie?

Cinnamon girl
Cinnamon girl

Don't cry, don't shed no tears
1 lie won't make us fear cuz we know how this movie's ending

Cinnamon girl
Ooh

As war drums beat n Babylon and scorch the blood red sky
Militants bomb with foreign guns, both sides, children die
Cinnamon girl opens the book she knows will settle all the scores
Then she prays after the war that there will not b anymore

Cinnamon girl
Yeah... uh
Cinnamon girl
Ah... yeah
Cinnamon girl
Don't worry, baby, it's gon' b alright
Yeah, cinnamon girl
Oh, ow!
