It's been a long time coming
It's been a long time coming
It's been a long time coming
But You Know you had it coming
Know you had it coming (coming)

Everyone's running from something
But we don't know when it's coming
So we keep running and running gotta

Everyone's running from something
But we don't know when it's coming
So we keep running and running and running

Now I'm looking up the bible tryna find a loophole,
Yeah I'm living for revival dying for a new soul,
Now there's no light to guide me on my
Way home,
Now there's no time to shine my Rusty Halo...

(It's been a long time coming)
It's been a long time,
(It's been a long time coming)
Yeah it's been a long time,
(It's been a long time coming)
Been so long, but I gotta shine, shine, shine,
My rusty halo...
Gotta shine my rusty halo...
Gotta shine my rusty halo

Now I'm running for the light in the tunnel but it's just the train,
(But it's just the train)
Yeah I'm looking for the right type of pleasure but all I find is pain,
(Oh)
Now there's no light to guide me on my way home,
Now there's no time to shine my rusty halo...

(It's been a long time coming)
It's been a long time,
(It's been a long time coming)
Yeah it's been a long time,
(It's been a long time coming)
Been so long, but I gotta shine, shine, shine
My rusty halo...
Gotta shine my rusty halo...
Gotta shine my rusty halo

It's been a long time,
It's been a long time,
It's been a long time,

I know I had it coming yeah, yeah
I know I had it coming yeah, yeah
I know I had it coming yeah, yeah
I know that I gotta shine my rusty halo...
Gotta shine my rusty halo,
Gotta shine my rusty halo,
Gotta shine my rusty halo,
My halo, my halo
Gotta shine my rusty halo
My halo, my halo
Gotta shine...

Everyone's running from something
But we don't know when it's coming
So we keep running and running gotta

Everyone's running from something
But we don't know when it's coming
So we keep running and running gotta.

    It's about retribution, he has done things wrong and it's time to pay for them, his halo is rusty because he hasn't been "using" it, doing good. He's running but he cant escape his punishment and now it's too late to "polish his halo" i.e. make up for what he has done!!!

    I think this song is about trying to find redeem or find your place in the world. Maybe because u have been outcast and ur shining ur rusty gear to get back into what you love.

    Running from him the past runnig from something. Bibical reference of the halo and the bible, fallen angle, on your own. "its been a long time" running for so long don't know who you are.

    I think it's about something bad that he's done in the past but never made up for. Now, years later, he's trying to fix his mistake but doesn't know how to go about it.

    I think it's about wanting forgiveness and trying to get a second chance, but you know that it's to late and it will never be the same. This is a great song and i've never heard anything like it before. It's really original and it's i think that it's amazing!
