Tell me, how long will we grovel at the feet of wealth and power?
Tell me, how long will we bow down to that golden calf, now?
(How long will be too long)

Tell me, how long will we curtsy to the whims of new religion?
Oh, how long will we water it down the truth 'til truth is no more?
(How long will be too long)

The power of faith and love
Can change the stuff we're made of but still we wait, tell me
(How long will be too long)

Tell me, how long will we drink from the chalice of indifference?
And neither be hot or be cold can a sober soul know
(How long will be too long, too long)

Is there not more to us than cursed dust to dust
I feel my hope fading
(How long will be too long)
(How long will be too long)

And tell me, how long will we travel from the ways that God intended, yeah?
Won't it all tumble down if His holy wrath comes?
(How long will be too long, too long)

The power of faith and love can change the stuff we're made of
Oh, when will it be too late?

(How long will be too long)
(How long will be too long)
(How long will be too long)
