"How Long?" as written by and Luke Gower Lucius Borich....
I remain but I can't explain it
All I know is that I won't go round again
In the morning I, I watch the lights and I follow
When the dust it settles lightly on the sill

How long?
How long?

Tired of waiting now
It seems that people put the brakes on
And had you noticed that the rains are late again?
Like a late-night worker I'm just a-goin through the motions
And I'm hoping that one day my luck will change

How long?
How long?
How long?
How long?
How long?

How long? (repeat till end)

    General CommentI disagree with Keogh. The song's about being stuck in a rut (depression, hopelessness, dismay, disgust, disenchantment with the world in general) and wondering just how long it will be till you feel differently, or until, perhaps, the world itself will change so that you may follow suit.

    General CommentI definitely agree with godscoward that this song is about frustration, hopelessness and apathy and needing a change in order to move on from a certain shituation. It's my favourite track on Sharing Space.
