Wishing Chair - 99 lyrics

You can read it in the paper
Maybe get it online
Hear it on the radio a thousand times
If it never touches your heart
Or opens your mind
Then you still got a long way to go

You got no time for patience
All those little white lies
All the greedy evils that you rationalize
Then you shake your head in sorrow but you walk on by
Yeah you still got a long way to go

I can't forget the students in Tian'anmen Square
The horror in the faces of the dying there
And the pieces of their liberty scattered where
They've still got such a hard way to go

You want to stop the violence among the young
3000 miles away we drop another bomb
With all our good intentions got the lesson wrong
Oh we still got a long way to go

Hate comes so easy
Change is so hard
You gain and inch and then we lose a yard
Sometimes I get so angry
Lord I get so tired
And it's still such a long way to go

They came for the Christians then they came for the Jews
The Lakota, Cherokee, Muslim, Hutu
Next time friend it might be me and you
Yeah we got such a long way to go

They say every journey
Starts with one step
You know this story ain't over yet
It's a walk that you and I we won't regret
Oh we got such a long way to go
