lyrics

Broke down on a dead end street of a ghost town with no one around
Heard the cry of a man behind a dilapidated Conoco
He said, "son, can you hand me one of them coffin nails inside my coat?"
Took a pull, said, "I'll tell you just how these fools turned all the green to brown."

They had abandoned the sanctity of all that is pure
He asked an obvious question, just to be sure

How long were we planning to remain
So wrong? I'll ask again and again
How long 'til the heart of everyone is the same?

Don't know how it got so bad when everybody knew what to do
No way they could sustain that system they had set in place
Stuck trying to save their comfort, they were lucky if they'd save their race

They had forsaken the Mother of everything we know
What do you do when the waste has nowhere else to go?

Do you know
How long we were planning to remain
So wrong? I'll ask again and again
How long 'til the heart of everyone is the same?
How long were we planning to remain
So wrong? I'll ask again and again
How long 'til the voice of everyone is the same?
