[Chorus]
EIt's been a long, long, long, long
D E BLong, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time
E D E BIt's been a long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time
[Verse 1]
E DWhen I was a kid, I used to draw airplanes, with stars and bars shooting down airplanes,
E Dadorned with hammers and sickles
E DI bought a hundred water guns so I could save the world, saving my lunch money
E D and stealing my father's quarters, dimes, and nickels
E D EI discovered religion watching Luke Skywalker rescue Princess Leia and destroying the Death Star
Dby letting go and closing his eyes
E DAnd I devoured comic books, Greek colored mythologies taught me right and wrong,
E Dand if you believe, you can fly
[Chorus]
EIt's been a long, long, long, long
D E BLong, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time
E D E BIt's been a long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time
[Verse 2]
E D EI remember listening to songs about trains and feeling the rush of wonder at the possibility that the world
B was infinite and accessible all at the same time.
E D EAnd then it was songs about highways and born to be wild and little red corvette and the road went on
Bforever in my mind
E DBut now it's clogged bumper to bumper with stinking SUVs and two-story pickup trucks that can drive
E B over anything except the two-story pickup truck right in front of it
E DNot even the highways look the same, Starbucks and 711s and Walmarts jam the feeder roads.
E B We don't live around this mess, we live under it
[Chorus]
EIt's been a long, long, long, long
D E BLong, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time
E D E BIt's been a long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time (Since I felt fine)
[Verse 3]
E D ENow all the songs are about gangsters and guns and the TV speeds by at 100 deaths an hour and
Beveryone wants to pull off the crime of the century
E DSteal two hundred gazillion dollars, enough to buy myself an island and build a real honest-to-God
E B train on it for no one but me
E DAnd get away with it. Get away with it. We Americans are freedom-loving people
E Band nothing says freedom like getting away with it
E DWe went from Billy the Kid to Richard Nixon, Enron, X-on, O.J. Simpson...
E BWe used to dream about heroes, but now it's just how to beat the system
E D ESo where to we go to dream now? Up on the roof of the projects, straining through the city lights to see
Bif they've built golden arches on the moon yet?
E D E BSelf-medicated, Half-sedated, trying our best to stay distracted, living life according to the TV set
E D ECorporations owning nations, telling us "don't change the station, it's the only safe way to win the human
Brace."
E D EI wonder how the world sees us, rich beyond compare, powerful without equal, a spoiled, drunk,
B15-year-old waving a gun in their face
[Chorus]
EIt's been a long, long, long, long
D E BLong, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time
E D E BIt's been a long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time
EIt's been a long, long, long, long
D E BLong, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time
E D E BIt's been a long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time (Since I felt fine)
