The fall, the fall...oh God! The fall of man!
The fruit is found in every eye and every hand
Nothing, there is nothing yet in truest form
We walk like ghosts upon the earth…the ground, it groans

How long? How long will You wait?
How long? How long ‘til You save us all? Save us all
Turn Your face to me (x4)

The light, the light, the morning light is gone
And all that’s left is fragile breath in failing lungs
The night, the night…the guiding night has come
Uniting lover with his bride more precious than the dawn

How long? How long must we wait?
Turn Your face to me (x4)

    General CommentThis is the fall of man, when Eve took the bite from the apple and man fell away from the Garden on Eden. The chorus 'How long? How long will You wait?
    How long? How long ‘til You save us all? Save us all
    Turn Your face to me (x4)' is asking how long must we wait until we be saved from the world our sins have created. And then saying turn your face to me so that either it is god saying look at him and love him again as an answer to the question or man asking god to look at them in order to save them.
