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 tryin' 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
(Woh oh, woh oh)
(Woh ohh, woh oh)
It's a long way to the promise land
(Woh oh, woh oh)
(Woh ohh, woh 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
(Woh oh, woh oh)
(Woh ohh, woh oh)
It's a long way to the promise land
(Woh oh, woh oh)
(Woh ohh, woh oh)

What are you going to do?
When they call 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

(Woh oh, woh oh)
It's a long way to the promise land
(Woh ohh, woh oh)
(Woh oh, woh oh)
It's a long way to the promise land
(Woh ohh, woh oh)

(It's a long way to the promise land)
When you join the people who've joined the club
(It's a long way to the promise land)
You gotta clench and play your hand
(It's a long way to the promise land)
Because the truth is just what you make of it
(It's a long way to the promise land)
You get it right
