"Liberty Bell" as written by Leslie Pridgen, Ernesto David Jr. Shaw, Barry A. Reese and Dwight Grant....
No brainwaves or activity
While the craft is in the air
It's getting dark, it's getting light
We are sitting in a chair

We have fastened every belt
We cannot float out of our seats
It's so enormously frightening
When our tail reaches superheat

Another timezone
A change of season
It is turning dark again
We're getting ready for yet
Another orbit around our planet

It is time for the galactic cruise
To come to an end
One last view on the world
And the time we have spend

We are sitting in a chair
Sitting in a chair
Sitting in a chair

    General CommentIt sounds simply like it's about astronauts going up into space. The astronauts' dialogue at the end (someone care to transcribe it here?) would indicate such, especially with the last note, "O-2 is alright."

    But the beauty of it...oh, how exciting! I just wonder why it's actually called "Liberty Bell." Maybe the bell-shape of the engines on the tail that reach the "superheat?" And the "liberty" that the launch brings?

    Any other interpretations of this popular Gathering song?
