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
