Soldier of fortune, he's a man of war
Just can't remember what he's fighting for
Start a revolution right before your eyes
When you hear the big bang don't you be surprised

Showdown at big sky
Darkness at high noon
Showdown at big sky
That day may be soon

People, people, can you hear the sound
From every village and every town?
Let the bells ring out, hear the bells ring in
Let the bells ring out, keep them ringing, ringing

Can't predict the future, can't forget the past
Feels like any moment could be the last
All you believers standing inside this room
Can't you see it coming shooting out across the moon?

(Save this place)
In the valley of tears by the river of time
(From weapons race)
In the Book Of David in the Holy Bible
(When it's laid to waste)
It will be written by the children of Eden
(I said save this place)
And the Holy Ghost

Showdown at big sky
Darkness at high noon
Showdown at big sky
That day may be soon

People, people, can you hear the sound
From every village and every town?
Let the bells ring out, hear the bells ring in
Let the bells ring out, keep them ringing, ringing

(Save this place)
In the valley of tears by the river of time
(From weapons race)
In the Book Of David in the Holy Bible
(When it's laid to waste)
It will be written by the children of Eden
(I said save this place)
And the Holy Ghost, and the Holy Ghost

Showdown at big sky
Darkness at high noon
Kiss tomorrow goodbye
That day could be soon

Give us strength, give us wisdom
And give us tomorrow
Let the bells ring out, hear the bells ring in
Let the bells ring out, keep them ringing, ringing
Let the bells ring out, hear the bells ring in
Let the bells ring out, keep them ringing, ringing
Let the bells ring out, hear the bells ring in
Let the bells ring out, keep them ringing, ringing
