Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Ring Dem Bells / Ring Them Bells
Subject: Lyr Add: RING THEM BELLS
The words to that last, as far as I can tell (off her Ring them Bells CD) are below. I would welcome corrections, people telling me I can't properly, etc.



Ring them bells you heathens
For the city that dreams
Ring them bells from the sanctuaries
'Cross the valleys and streams
For they're deep and they're wide
And the world's on its side
And time is running backward
and so is the bride

Ring them bells St Peter, where the four winds blow
Ring them bells with an iron hand, for the people will know
What s*** will now
the wheel and the plow
And the sun is going down upon
the sacred cow
Ring them bells sweet Martha
For the poor man's son
Ring them bells so the world will know
That God is one
And the shepherd's asleep
Where the willows weep
And the mountains they are filled
With lost sheep
Ring them bells
For the blind and deaf
Ring them bells
For all of us who are left
Ring them bells
For the chosen few
Who judge the many
when the day is through
Ring them bells
For the time that flies
For the child that cries
When her innocence dies

Ring them bells St Catherine
From the top of the room
Ring them bells from the fortress
For the lilies that bloom
For the lines? they are long
and the fighting is strong
And they're breaking down the distance
between right and wrong
