I’ve been so long lost I’ve forgotten most everything

When the hammer hits the bell no longer does it ring


Passing by an open door a crowd had gathered there

All dressed in Sunday finery with ever so much care


But the man who was speaking to them was dressed the same as me

Shouting about some temptations and what would set them free


I stopped to listen then for a little while

Thinking he had captured them with guile

Serving Seemingly simple truths his style


The longer I listened to him the harder it was to tell

Just what was his purpose what was he trying to sell

Making so much sense it must be some kind of spell


When the hammer hits the bell no longer does it ring

I’ve been so long lost I’ve forgotten most everything


Standing in that doorway

His voice began to sway


Dusty and so tired from everywhere have I roamed

Trying to remember from my memories have I combed


Then I hear him calling me

Just calling me back home

Saying I could be set free

By nothing but some tome


I’d been so long lost I’d forgotten almost everything

Until he hit the polished dome with his hammer hard


Making that old bronze bell ring

And all the people there to sing


Voices so lovely laughing and singing such a song

Starting to feel happy something must be wrong


Singing their temptations trying to get to me

If only I could remember I would be set free

But then his words hit me like his hammer hard

And felled me like a tree

Waking from my solitude

And closer now to thee


I only stopped to listen for a little while

But still he captured me there with guile

By serving me the truths in a simple style


I’d been so long lost I’d forgotten most everything

Sweetly singing voices were such a distant memory


Dusty and tired from everywhere I’ve roamed

Broken fragments of memories I’ve combed


Trying hard now to get back home

Following a thread from the tome


Trying so hard to get back home

Following a thread from the tome
