By day, I hear the screams of a compromising scene
Has the wailing wall ridden the waves back through time?
What kind of idea has been planted in the mind
When stealing babies and killing your folks earn you spots on prime time?

Down we go
One more time
Here we go

And I ask, "Is this right?" to anyone who will hear
Is it something I missed or was not told?
And life goes on in Belltown

The needle finds its way into Daddy's arm to stay
While the kids are thrown to the night and told to play
The sirens sound, piercing the night
Shots' echoes lead me to the sight
A dead body
Nothing left but a proud punk saying, "This is my life"

Ring the bells in Belltown
Another soul's thrown away
Ring the bells in Belltown
Should we cry, or should we pray?

Ring the bells in Belltown for the children born today
Ring the bells in Belltown for the price they'll have to pay

Ring the bells in Belltown
Another death tonight
Ring the bells in Belltown
Ask God to make it right
