I know you ask today, How long will it take?
I know you ask today, How long?
I know you ask today, How long will it take?
How long? (Not long)
How long? (Not long)
Not long – because no lie can live forever.

I know you ask today, How long will it take?
I know you ask today, How long?
I know you ask today, How long will it take?
How long? (Not long)
How long? (Not long)
Not long – because you still reap what you sow…

However difficult the moment,
however frustrating the hour,
It won't be long, not long,
Because truth crushed to the earth - will rise again.

I know you ask today, How long will it take?
I know you ask today, How long?
I know you ask today, How long will it take?
How long? (Not long)
How long? (Not long)
Because the arc of the moral universe - is long,
Oh yes, the arc of the moral universe - is long,
Oh yes, the arc of the moral universe - is long,
But it bends toward justice…

(How long? Not long)
(How long?) NOT LONG!
