All the world is like a beach ball
Out in space between the waves
In the hands of laughing babies
All the world is gumball shaped

Hello moon
Hello stars and the sky
Heaven won't you
Answer me and why
I ring the bell 'til someone listens

Look upon this burning city
Victory smiles, the wicked man
Does he feel the weight of every finger
Hanging off his heavy hand
I ring the bell til someone listens

Bring me gold and bring me wisdom
Give me scars to bring me grace
Their wicked wit and when I use it
Dash the hopes of those who hate me
Give me love, big as a mountain
Oh oh oh, yeah

I ring the bell til someone listens
Melt your words right to my skin
And your smile, my flesh and bones
From the mountains I will sing to you
Through your veins my river flows
I ring the bell til someone listens

Bring me gold and bring me wisdom
Give me scars to bring me grace
Their wicked wit and when I use it
Dash the hopes of those who hate me
Give me love, big as a mountain
Oh oh oh, yeah

I ring the bell til someone listens
Bring me gold and bring me wisdom
Give me scars to bring me grace
Their wicked wit and when I use it
Dash the hopes of those who hate me
Give me love big as a beach ball
Give me love big as a beach ball
Oh oh oh, yeah

    General CommentProbably the best DMB song of the past 10 years. I don't know why this didn't make the album.
