Tom Morello – How Long lyrics

(feat. Steve Aoki & Tim McIlrath of Rise Against)

[Refrain]
And how long?
And how long?
And how long?
With lights and sound
We drown them out
With lights and sound
We drown them out
With lights and sound
We drown them out
With lights and sound
We drown them out

[Pre-Chorus]
From the red ropes to the masses
We are one and the same
Every billboard we are burning
A delusion up in flames

[Chorus]
And how long can we dance around
The hungry mouths, the burning streets?
And how long can we drown them out
With lights and sound
While the bombs fall at our feet?
And how long can we drown them out
With lights and sound
While the bombs fall at our feet?

[Refrain]
And how long?
And how long?
With lights and sound
We drown them out
With lights and sound
We drown them out
With lights and sound
We drown them out
With lights and sound
We drown them out

[Pre-Chorus]
From the red ropes to the masses
We are one and the same
Every billboard we are burning
A delusion up in flames

[Chorus]
And how long can we dance around
The hungry mouths, the burning streets?
And how long can we drown them out
With lights and sound
While the bombs fall at our feet?
While the bombs fall at our feet
While the bombs fall at our feet

[Outro]
How long?
While the bombs fall at our feet
While the bombs fall at our feet
While the bombs fall at our feet
