[Bb]well the bible tells us about a man, who ruled [Bb]babylon and all its land
[Bb]around the a city he built a wall, and decla[C]red that babylon would never fall
[Bb]he had concubines and wives, he called[Bb] his babylon paradise
[Bb]upon his throne he drank and ate, but for be[C]lshazzar it was getting late[Bb]
[Bb]for he was weighed in the[C] balance and found wantin[Bb]g
[Bb]His kingdom was divided, couldn'[C]t stand
[Bb] he was weighed in the ba[C]lance and found wanting[Bb]
[Bb]His houses were built up[Bb]on the sand

[Bb]while the people feasted and drank their wine, [Bb]and praised the false gods of his time
[Bb]all holy things they scorned and mocked, whe[C]n suddenly all their mocking stopped
[Bb]for on the wall there appeared a hand,[Bb] nothing else there was no man
[Bb]in blood the hand began to write, and belsha[C]zzar couldn't hide his frigh[Bb]t
[Bb]for he was weighed in the[C] balance and found wantin[Bb]g
[Bb]His kingdom was divided, couldn'[C]t stand
[Bb] he was weighed in the ba[C]lance and found wanting[Bb]
[Bb]His houses were built up[Bb]on the sand

last verse is:
no one around could understand what was written by the mystic hand
belshazzar tried but he couldn't find, a man who could give him peace of mind
then daniel, the prophet, a man of god, he saw the writing on the wall in blood
belshazzar asked him what'd it said, and daniel turned to the wall and read
*chorus*
and thats all.
-el berto
