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.

    If you look at it metaphorically, which I tend to do whenever you have biblical references etc, it really is referring to the fallen angel. The singer of the song is essentially likening himself to, if he is not himself a fallen angel. The Fallen Ones didn't get a reprieve, do not enjoy the same forgivenesses that humans do and so he is trying to find a loophole in the bible in order to get into the pleasures of heaven, vs. The pain etc of hell. Apparently he knew that he had it coming for his actions and rebellion and is now trying to make up for it as an afterthought. I run a writing group and we used this particular song as a prompt. It was really fun to see how our resident fallen angel character used it.
