daniel in the lions den lyrics – colorblind james experience

hungry wolves are howlin’, rabid dogs run free
the sky is full of vultures
the sharks have left the sea
thieves and murderers roam the street
they’d love to see you dead
yet you make your way in this world with not a hair touched on your head
just like daniel, daniel in the lion’s den
just like daniel, daniel in the lion’s den
misfortune everywhere you look
sickness, greed and hate
but the world has plenty of martyrs now, so don’t tempt fate
keep the slide whistle ready and the police whistle to
though you walk trough the valley of darkness, they can’t lay a finger on you
just like daniel, daniel in the lion’s den
just like daniel, daniel in the lion’s den
face to face with that hungry beast
any day now you will be released
face to face with that ugly throng
you’ll get the hang of it before long

well, there was a big dragon in babylon
and a mighty dragon too
and them that lived there worshipped him
who wouldn’t, wouldn’t you?
but daniel alone refused to bow
though threatened by the king
until at last he killed that beast
he poisoned that evil thing
but the people rose against him and cast him in a pit where seven lions waited to tear him limb from limb
but when they came back seven days later to collect poor daniel’s bones
well, there sat daniel with a smile on his face, feeling quite at home
daniel, daniel in the lion’s den
daniel, daniel in the lion’s den
face to face with that hungry beast
any day now you will be released
face to face with that ugly throng
you’ll get the hang of it before long

daniel in the lion’s den
daniel in the lion’s den
daniel in the lion’s den
daniel in the lion’s den
