As war drums beat N Babylon
Cinnamon girl starts 2 pray
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
& 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!
