about

track 12 from "live at dublin st. church", recorded on april 2, 2011.

lyrics

LONG LONG LONG

capo III
verse: C C Am F
chorus: C (C G) F (F G)
bridge: C F Am F

only the constant survive
not the weak with their lies
letting the ocean tides
yet they never decide
the permanent storm
has human form
exacting a terrible price
come on open your eyes
once they were closed...

[chorus]
long long long

never convinced
someone has since
told you the evidence
all you need is an inch
next to the end
trying to mend
suffering discipline
until nobody wins
really it's been...

[chorus]
[instr. bridge]

violent lives
if we survive
vacate the constant past
each one will last...
