Intro :              
                 (            ...)
 
 
  Far between the sundown's    finish
and   midnights broken    toll
we    ducked inside
the   doorway as th  under went cras  hing                       
 
 
As   majestic bells of    bolts
struck   shadows in the    sounds
  seeming to be the   chimes of   freedom    flashing
 
 
   Flashing for the warriors
whose   strength is   not to    fight
  flashing for the    refugees
of the   unarmed road of    flight
and for   each and every    underdog
  soldier in the    night
and we   gazed upon the   chimes of   freedom   flashing                    
 
 
There are cities melted furnace
unexpectedly we watched
with faces hidden as the walls were tightening
 
 
As the echo of the wedding bells
before the blowing rain
dissolved into the bells of the lightning
 
 
Tolling for the rebel
tolling for the rake
tolling for the luckless
they are bound and damned forsaked
tolling for the outcasts
burning constantly at stake
and we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing
 
 
Through the mad mystic hammering
and the wild ripping hail
the sky cracked its farms in naked wonder
 
 
As the clanging of the church bells
blew far into the breeze
leaving only bells of lightning and its thunder
 
 
Striking for the gentle
striking for the kind
striking for the guardians and protectors of the mind
and the poet and painter
far behind his rightful time
and we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing
 
 
In the wild cathedral evening
the rain unravelled tales
for a disrobed faceless farms of no position
 
 
Tolling for the tongues
with no place to bring their thoughts
all down and taken for granted situations
 
 
Tolling for the deaf and blind
tolling for the mute
for a mistreated maidless mother, a mistitled prostitute
for the misdemeanor outlaw
chained and cheated by pursuit
and we gaze upon the chimes of freedom flashing
 
 
Even though the cloud's white curtain
in a far off corner flowered
and the hypnotic splattered mist was slowly lifting
 
 
Electric light still struck like arrows
fired but further ones
condemned to drift or else be kept from drifting
 
 
Tolling for the searching ones
on their speechless seeking trail
for the lonesome hearted lovers with too personal a tale
and for each unharmful gentle soul
misplaced inside a jail
and we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing
 
 
Starry eyes and laughing
as I recall when we were caught
trapped ours for they hang suspended
 
 
As we listened one last time
and we watched with one last look
spellbound and swallowed 'til the tolling ended
 
 
Tolling for the aching
whose wounds cannot be nursed
or the countless confused accused misused
strung out ones and worse
and for every hung up person
in the whole wide universe
and we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing
 
dee dee...
