It Took A Song From 1986 To Get Me Motivated

latest

I went the thrift store the other day to buy an album I saw the day before. Well, the album I wanted had been snatched but in it’s a place I found an album that rocked my face off when I was a senior in High School. Lone Justice only put out three albums but they were all winners. All of them spoke to me and inspired me as a young man.

Today, as a middle aged man, I struggled to get motivated yesterday and then the first song on side B came on, Belfry. From note one this anthem brought me back to my idealistic high school youth and the blood in my veins began pumping vigorously. If I had a hair brush in my hand I would have owned the stage of my basement.

If you are struggling to get moving today, read the lyrics as poetry. Put your own music to it. Ring that bell of victory today.

Scarred, scourged, tattered
Vessels frayed and frail
The shield of faith is battered
But it will not lie down
To let defeat prevail

Pounding with a vengeance
Hearts that beat with light
For shining in the distance
A glimpse of the tower
Through the blood and fog

Belfry, Belfry
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us

From the coldest mountain
To the deepest brine
Burst the shutters open
And let the glorious sound
Rip apart the sky

Belfry, Belfry
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us

Belfry, Belfry
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us

Belfry, hope has returned for good
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us

Ring it, ring it
Ring it, ring it
Ring it, ring it
Ring it, ring it
Ring it
