How Long You Gonna Stand For This 

Lyric for a new song in the works. Shared with you on the wake of yet another (ANOTHER!) mass shooting/hate crime. In this era of intolerance, racism, bigotry and fear-mongering tell me: How long ARE we gonna stand for this?

Hate in the air, lightning on the street  
Everybody on the run 
Thunder in the gutter and blood on the wind 
God won’t help you, son 
Your god won’t help you 

How long you gonna stand - How long you gonna stand for this 
How long you gonna stand - How long you gonna stand for this 

You say it can’t happen here no way no how 
That’s a very quaint notion 
Playin’ poker with the devil and it’s his deal 
From the bottom of the deck, son 
From the bottom of the deck to you 

chorus (2x) 

Bangin’ out the back screen and into the cellar 
Gotta hide from the day 
Pull in the latch string and double bar the door 
Can’t see no sin that way, son 
Can’t see no truth that way 

inst 

chorus 

Yonder hear the cannon, yonder hear the gong 
Yonder come the riders on 
Pass around the bottles, share the gasoline 
Make your play right here, son 
Gotta make our play right here 

Make our play in the valley of the shadow 
Gonna make our play right here 

chorus (2x)

 

Selah. 

Please, be kind to one another.

Here's a tune from my new CD Road Of Man entitled "Cocoon". If you like it, feel free to share. If you don't like it, share it with your enemies....
