"This Long Hour" as written by Kimberley Kenneth Benzie, Forrester Savell, Robert Maric, Luke Williams and Stewart Alexander Hill....
Make it go away
This is not the first time it's loud
Shouting for more space
And I can only hear this one sound
I am now awake
Stepping out and breaking from lines
Something has been changed
But not enough to make up your mind
It's setting fire to my ideals
and I just don't know
how much more that I can take

I can't stand in this line anymore
now I know I can feel this
I can't even decide if I know
how to be whatever this is
Take each breath at a time
just to hold myself here now disarmed
Who's in control now I'm awake

I'll throw one straight stone
at a time at this fearful reflection
of my face in front of me, I'll change
it's grown hard now to breathe
I will learn and I will find a new way

Is it a mistake, this is not the first time
it's loud, shouting for more space
And I can only hear this one sound
I can't stand in this line anymore
now I know I can feel this
Who's in control now I'm awake, cos I am not

I'll throw one straight stone
at a time at this fearful reflection
of my face in front of me, I'll change
it's grown hard now to breathe
I will learn and I will find a new way

I'll throw one straight stone
at a time at this fearful reflection
of my face in front of me, I'll change
it's grown hard now to breathe
I will learn and I will find a new way

Who's in control now I'm awake
'Till the end of this long hour
This one thing, that I really wanna know

Who's in control now I'm awake
'Till the end of this long hour
This one thing, that I really wanna know

I can't stand in this line anymore
now I know I can feel this
Who's in control now I'm awake, cos I am not

I'll throw one straight stone
at a time at this fearful reflection
of my face in front of me, I'll change
it's grown hard now to breathe
I will learn and I will find a new way

I'll throw one straight stone
at a time at this fearful reflection
of my face in front of me, I'll change
it's grown hard now to breathe
I will learn and I will try, now to breathe
I"ll learn to define, how this feels
I'll learn, I can't wait in this line
It's not who I am

    My InterpretationI think this song is about awakening to a higher level of consciousness/spirituality, and being aware of how predictable and crippling the majority of the world is. However, it says "who's in control now I'm awake, cos I am not", and I think that can either means that he has surrendered to the flow of his higher state of mind, that he doesn't know how to approach this new state of mind and where to begin, or that the material world is pulling him back and he can't control it.
