Well the Bible tells us about a man
Who ruled Babylon and all it's 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 Belshazzer it was getting 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

The people feast and drank their wine
And praised the false gods of his time
All holy things were scorned and mocked
But suddenly all their mocking stopped

For on the wall there appeared a hand
Nothing else, there was no man
And but, the hand began to write
And Belshazzar couldn't hide his fright

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

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

"My friend your weighed in the balance and found wanting
Your kingdom was divided, it can't stand
Your weighed in the balance and found wanting
Your houses were built upon the sand"

Don't call my name out your window, I'm leaving
I won't even turn my head
Don't send your kin folks to give me no talkin'
I'll be gone like I said
You'd say the same old things that you've been saying all along
Lay there in your bed and keep your mouth shut 'til I'm gone
Don't give me that old familiar cryin' cussin' moan,
Understand your man (I'm tired of your badmouthin')
Understand your man.

You can give my other suits to the Salvation Army
And everything else I leave behind.
I ain't takin' nothing that'll slow down my travelin'
While I'm untanglin' my mind.

I ain't gonna repeat what I said anymore
While I'm breathin' air that ain't been breathed before
I'll be as gone as a wild goose in winter
Then you'll understand your man (meditate on it)
Understand your man (you hear me talkin')
Understand your man (remember what I told ya)
