lyrics

Hook: It’s been a long time coming / Lock stock / coming for the livestock / Running for their lives.
It’s been a long time coming / Lock stock / coming for the livestock / Running for their lives.
It’s been a long time / It’s been a long time / It’s been a long time coming.
It’s been a long time coming / Lock stock / coming for the livestock / Running for their lives, walk.
Metal to metal / the medals of honor pierce his chest / Kettle to kettle man / his heart is black and bleeds for the death / To all the rebels living off the laws that fear suggests / he appears a mess / but there’s a message he’s decoding / And he’s the envy of the unknowing / but all-willing to picture it all perfect / He talks into this mic with nothing in mind / the image is all worth it / No worship in his blood / no curses worth believing in / He’s up and he’s leaving a love for reason and / he’s making his rounds / He pounds his chest and hits the streets / He’s bad to the bone with bad bones / but won’t admit defeat / Visits the meek who inherently speak / from a well-oiled machine of a heart that won’t back off / Comes from a back-log of lost and tough luck / he’s completely punch drunk / but too exhausted to touch love, but / it’s kept tucked away with a new fade-proof innocence / that’s under-age and over-paid-attention-to / And since he’s destined to live without a destiny to rest into / he’ll just search for recipes from entries to exit-wounds / Sets the moonshine down and writes another victim’s tune / then washes the blood from his hands with drinks until his fingers prune.

Hook

He never had faith in god / only trusts the custody he seeks / and he’d just love to have you judge him by the company he keeps The company of wolves / customized and cunning / up, up and running “wild in the streets, running, running” / He’s cutting it close / He’s luxury class / He’s up in the smoke and ash of habits that had broke him fast / He’s crass, so don’t cross him / He’s wild in his sorrow / but he manages his emotions and lights another Marlboro like...

It’s been a long time coming
