It's a long way to the promise land
So you'd better well know your way.
There's a ship on the ocean
And an albatross who is trying to lead you astray.
Leaders, politicians and power whores
Are in line to receive your choice.
And you bet your ass, if you give it to them,
They will gladly take your voice.

And it's a long way to the promise land.
Wo-oh oh oh oh oh.

It's a long way to the promise land,
If we work we might find it here.
There's no substitute for enlightenment,
There's no reason for bridled fear.
When you join the people who've joined the club,
You gotta clench and play your hand,
'Cuz if you fall in line you're gonna fall in time
And you'll never make a stand.

And it's a long way to the promise land.
Wo-oh oh oh oh oh.

What are you going to do
When they come for you?
Bend and capitulate
Or keep your head on straight?
Easy answers bought without experience
Is gonna lead you to certain doom.
Because the truth is just what you make of it,
It begins and ends with you!

And it's a long way to the promise land.
Wo-oh oh oh oh oh.
