LONG BLACK ROAD


the animals walked in two by two
yes the animals walked in two by two
preparing for the flood • standing equal to their God
and the animals walked in two by two
but I'm walking down that long black road
walking down that long black road
hiding for the crowd with my backhead steep down bowed
as I'm walking down that long black road

the animals walked in two by two
yes the animals walked in two by two
in the vapor of the death they were sharing food and breath
and the animals walked in two by two
but I'm walking down that long black road
walking down that long black road
hiding for the crowd with my backhead steep down bowed
as I'm walking down that long black road

the animals walked in two by two
yes the animals walked in two by two
comes the time it will return
and the human race will learn
to be walking gently two by two
till then I'm walking down that long black road
walking down that long black road
hiding from the crowd but still crying out loud
why walking down that long black road?
