It's A Long Way To The Promise Land

Lyrics | Track Details

It's a long way to the promise land so you'd better well know your way
There's a ship on the ocean and an albatross who is trying to lead you astray
Leaders, politicians, and power whores are in line to receive your choice
And you bet your ass, if you give it to them, they will gladly take your voice
And it's a long way to the promise land Wo-oh Oh oh oh

It's a long way to the promise land, if we work we might find it here
There's no substitute for enlightenment, there's no reason for bridled fear
When you've joined the people who've joined the club you gotta clench and play your hand
'Cuz if you fall in line you're gonna fall in time and you'll never make a stand
It's a long way to the promise land Wo-oh Oh oh oh

(Bridge)
What are you going to do? When they call for you?
Bend and capitulate? Or keep your head on straight?

Easy answers bought without experience, is gonna lead you to certain doom
Because the truth is just what you make of it, it begins and ends with you!
And it's a long way to the promise land Wo-oh Oh oh oh
