Bb                                             Bb
well the bible tells us about a man, who ruled babylon and all its land

Bb                                          C
around the a city he built a wall, and declared that babylon would never fall

Bb                                    Bb
he had concubines and wives, he called his babylon paradise

Bb                                          C                           Bb
upon his throne he drank and ate, but for belshazzar it was getting late


Bb                       C                        Bb
for he was weighed in the balance and found wanting

Bb                              C
His kingdom was divided, couldn't stand


Bb                       C                        Bb
 he was weighed in the balance and found wanting

Bb                      Bb
His houses were built upon the sand

Bb                                             Bb
while the people feasted and drank their wine, and praised the false gods of his time

Bb                                          C
all holy things they scorned and mocked, when suddenly all their mocking stopped

Bb                                    Bb
for on the wall there appeared a hand, nothing else there was no man

Bb                                          C                           Bb
in blood the hand began to write, and belshazzar couldn't hide his fright

Bb                       C                        Bb
for he was weighed in the balance and found wanting

Bb                              C
His kingdom was divided, couldn't stand


Bb                       C                        Bb
 he was weighed in the balance and found wanting

Bb                      Bb
His houses were built upon the sand

and when the key changes luthers guitar goes

|-------------------|
|-------------------|
|-------------------|
|-------------------|
|------3-----3----3-|
|---1-----1----1----|

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
