How Long? (The Punters) tabs

Click Here for tabs.

How long are you gone this time?
To where? Who cares why?
So far in your mind,
Don't know just what you'll find.

Don't you even think it through?
They broke and drained you;
It's almost like they knew,
Just what you would do.

You're leaving but you know
you got the right to stay,
But those in power wouldn't have it any other way;
Just vacating, erasing every trace in sight,
And I wonder will you make your flight?

But you'll pull through up there,
You'll find your kind somewhere;
You'll get together, feel better,
and you'll rant and roar
And you'll talk of when you'll return.

You're leaving but you know
you got the right to stay,
But those in power wouldn't have it any other way;
Just vacating, erasing every trace in sight,
And I wonder will you make your flight?

Why do they want us gone?
What are we sitting on?
But we will take their bait,
And leave through that swinging gate.

They're leaving but they know
they got the right to stay,
But those in power wouldn't have it any other way;
Just vacating, erasing every trace in sight,
And I wonder if they think that's right.
And I wonder if they think that's right.
And I wonder if they think, that that's right!
