The new Mumford & Sons video for the song "Babel" sees the band's four men on an infinite loop, with each pouring his entire body into the music on every glimpse. The black-and-white clip is set in a rustic-looking building with derelict walls, and even the piano Ben Lovett plays looked blighted.
It's a fitting image for a song that repeats the line "The walls of my town, they come crumbling down."
"Babel" marks the band's fourth single from the Grammy-winning album of the same name. The first two releases, "I Will Wait" and "Lover of the Light," both cracked the Top 5 on the U.S. Alternative Songs chart.
The album, released in September 2012, is currently the third best-selling record of the year, behind Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" and Bruno Mars' "Unorthodox Jukebox." In its 40th week of release, "Babel" currently sits at No. 30 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. As of this past weekend, it made its way back to the top of the U.K. chart.

Mumford and Sons - The Cave - With Lyrics
Mumford and Sons - The Cave - With Lyrics Lyrics - It's empty in the valley of your heart The sun, it rises slowly as you walk Away from all the fears And all the faults you've left behind The harvest left no food for you to eat You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see But I have seen the same I know the shame in your defeat But I will hold on hope And I won't let you choke On the noose around your neck And I'll find strength in pain And I will change my ways I'll know my name as it's called again Cause I have other things to fill my time You take what is yours and I'll take mine Now let me at the truth Which will refresh my broken mind So tie me to a post and block my ears I can see widows and orphans through my tears I know my call despite my faults And despite my growing fears But I will hold on hope And I won't let you choke On the noose around your neck And I'll find strength in pain And I will change my ways I'll know my name as it's called again So come out of your cave walking on your hands And see the world hanging upside down You can understand dependence When you know the maker's land So make your siren's call And sing all you want I will not hear what you have to say Cause I need freedom now And I need to know how To live my life as it's meant to be And I will hold on hope And I won't let you choke On the noose around your neck And I'll find strength in pain And I will change my ways I'll know my name as it's called again
