"Been a Long Time" as written by and Zachary P Wylde....
The death, the lies, in lies the truth
All that it is, what was, ain't true
I was down but now I can see
The pain, the hurt, the misery

Oh Lord, it's been a long time
Doing my best I'll try and get it next time

This cross you bare I've come to carry for you
This cross you bare I've come to break it in two
I was down but now I can see
The pain, the hurt, the misery

Oh Lord, it's been a long time
Doing my best I'll try and get it next time

    General CommentAs I'm writing this comment, Mafia is their most recent album, and it is the most up-beat in their discography. So, I think this song means it's been a long time since he's felt proud and truly happy.
