Well I been a-waitin’
For far too many conversations
Keep on a-hailin’ for that time to come
Well they see it in the news
And they see it in the weather
But all that is it will be shall become
Well something ‘bout a king
And come something ‘bout a struggle that’s as good as done
But it’s no time to pretend
Well them people getting restless
With their foolish thoughts of death and lessness(?)
Well I say good is good because it is

Well Long they go they’ll tempt you with gospel
Little Long put down that gospel
Long they go they’ll tempt you with gospel
Little Long put down that gospel

Well I’m still a-waitin’
For that force of creation to awaken us to mold that setting sun
But nothin’ but hypocrites want nothin’ but nothingness,
Telling us it’s better when it’s done
Well that good is evil, wise is dumb, and a war that’s lost is a war that’s won
I can’t take it any more
Such a will and self-deception,
All for a glimpse of a heaven
That you can’t see right outside your door

Well Long they go they’ll tempt you with gospel
Little Long put down that gospel
Long they go they’ll tempt you with gospel
Little Long put down that gospel

Now I’m done a-waitin’
Now it’s time where we start takin’
Liken to a short time in that sun
‘cause I’m tellin’ you the end don’t justify the meaninglessness
Of all that we have done
Well there’s a heaven and hell inside of me
There’s a heaven and hell that lives and breathes,
Not above or far beneath
So stop wishin’ for the past and strivin’ for the future
In that moment, everything’s complete

Well Long they go they’ll tempt you with gospel
Little Long put down that gospel
Long they go they’ll tempt you with gospel
Little Long put down that gospel

    My InterpretationThe song is about not believing religion and preachers word for word because they have their own agenda.
