Phil Collins – Long Long Way To Go lyrics

While I sit here trying to think of things to say
Someone lies bleeding in a field somewhere
So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go
I've seen all I wanna see today

While I sit here trying to move you anyway I can
Someone's son lies dead in a gutter somewhere
And it would seem that we've got a long long way to go
But I can't take it anymore

Turn it off if you want to
Switch it off it will go away
Turn it off if you want to
Switch it off or look away

While I sit and we talk and talk and we talk some more
Someone's loved one's heart stops beating in a street somewhere
So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go, I know
I've heard all I wanna hear today

Turn it off if you want to (turn it off if you want to)
Switch it off it will go away (switch it off it will go away)
Turn it off if you want to (turn it off if you want to)
Switch it off or look away (switch it off or look away)

Switch it off
Turn it off

    I've been a big genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on duke where phil collins' presence became more apparent. I think invisible touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Take the lyrics to land of confusion. In this song, phil collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In too deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Phil collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like in the air tonight and against all odds. But I also think phil collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is 'long long way to go', a great, great song, a personal favorite.
