Belshazzah lyrics
Well the bible tells us about a man
Who ruled Babylon and all its land
Around the city he built a wall
And declared that Babylon would never fall

He had concubines and wives
He called his Babylon Paradise
On his throne he drank and ate
But for Belshazah it was gettin' late

For he was weighed in the balance and found wanting
His kingdom was divided couldn't stand
He was weighed in the balance and found
Wanting his houses were built upon the sand

Well the people feasted and drank their wine
And praised the false gods of his time
All holy things they scorned and mocked
But suddenly all their mocking stopped

For on the wall there appeared a hand
Nothing else there was no man
In blood the hand began to write
And Belshazah couldn't hide his fright

For he was weighed in the balance and found wanting
His houses were built upon the sand

Well no one around could understand
What was written by the mystic hand
Belshazah tried but couldn't find
A man who could give him peace of mind

But Daniel the prophet a man of God
He saw the writing on the wall in blood
Belshazah asked him what it said
And Daniel turned to the wall and read

My friend you're weighed in the balance and found wanting
Your kingdom is divided it can't stand
You're weighed in the balance and found
Wanting your houses are built upon the sand
