Lyrics

It's been a long time comin'
It's goin' to be a long time gone
And it appears to be a long night
'fore the dawn

You can smell something burning
But you don't know who lit the fire
You can feel pavement getting hotter
But you can't see things like I
And it appears to be a long night
'fore the dawn

Turn, turn any corner
Hear what the people say
There's something that's goin' on around here
That surely, surely won't stand the light of day
And it appears to be a long night
'fore the dawn

Speak out, speak out against the madness
Speak your mind if you dare
But don't, most specially don't try to get yourself elected
And if you do you'd better cut your hair
Because it appears to be a long night
'fore the dawn

It's been a long time comin'
It's goin' to be a long time gone
But you know
That the darkest hour
Is always just before the dawn
