Well, the bible tells us about a man
Around the city, he built a wall

He called his Babylon "Paradise."
but for Belshazar it was gettin' late.
For he was weighed in the balance and found wanting,
He was weighed in the balance and found wanting,

And praised the false gods of his time.
But suddenly all their mocking stopped.
Nothin' else, there was no man.
And Belshazar couldn't hide his fright.
For he was weighed in the balance and found wanting,
He was weighed in the balance and found wanting,

What was written by the mystic hand.
A man who could give him peace of mind.
He saw the writing on the wall in blood.
And Daniel turned to the wall and read:
"My friend, you're weighed in the balance and found wanting,
You're weighed in the balance and found wanting,
