LYRICS

“I know you’re asking today, how long will it take? It will not be long.”

“How long? Not long; no lie can live forever
How long? Not long; you will reap what you sow
Truth crushed to the earth will rise again, yes, sir.” (x4)

“How long? Not long; no lie can live forever
How long? Not long; you will reap what you sow
The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice”
