lyrics

As Long

As long as there’s another war and people suffering more and more
As long as millions are starving to death and tons of food are wasted somewhere else
As long as we don’t respect human rights and false ideologies are the reason for fights
Innocent people are imprisoned and tortured and way too many animals slaughtered

As long as so many things go wrong I cannot close my eyes too long
As long as so many things go wrong I will not rest for very long

As long as there’s illegal deforestation and no solution to the climate protection
As there’s trafficking in human beings and forced labor’s killing children’s dreams
As long as lobby’s got too much influence and cannot be made accountable
Fascist murders run through the land and policemen remove evidence

As long as so many things go wrong I cannot close my eyes too long
As long as so many things go wrong I will not rest for very long

As long as not everyone has freedom of religion and expression
There’s still countries that discriminate women and rapists don’t have to fear a conviction
As long as the church is tellin’ lies, making no efforts to apologize
But hinder the investigation of crimes committed by clergymen

As long as so many things go wrong I cannot close my eyes too long
As long as so many things go wrong I will not rest for very long

As long as the rich are getting richer and the poor still getting poorer
Corruption is the key to success and equal rights mean nothing to the upper class

As long as so many things go wrong I cannot close my eyes too long
As long as so many things go wrong I will not rest for very long
As long as so many things go wrong I cannot close my eyes too long
As long as so many things go wrong I will not rest for very long

As long as there’s another war and people suffering more and more
