"How Long" as written by Robert Augusta Johnson and Sam Ray Mosley....
I'll set out one day
Maybe you will follow
Let come what may
Oh a glass of fear to swallow

Got to get it over
If black and white were blind like in a dream
In a million years maybe
Maybe we'll never know, no never
I want a chance to love whatever

(tell me how long)
How long my brother
Can we turn away?
(tell me how long)
There's anger and bitterness here
Can you tell me how long?

No empathy
Like I'm supposed to feel some
Through misery
Shut my eyes like the next one
Look for satisfaction

Only see the lines that hide my face
Never find a resolution
Locking the doors in fear together
Holding the pain inside forever

(tell me how long)
How long my brother
Can we turn away?
(tell me how long)

There's anger and bitterness here
Can you tell me?
Can you tell me?
How long?
Come on and tell me
Yeah how long?

(solo)

How long my brother
Can we turn away?
(tell me how long)
There's anger and bitterness here
Can you tell me?
Can you tell me?
(tell me how long)

How long my brother
Can we turn away?
(tell me how long)
How can we see our way clear?
Oh Can you tell me?
How long?
