[this is the first studio version of Long Goodbye, a second version was recorded in 1987]
The Long Goodbye
In the endless summer of discontent
The tip of the iceberg on the darkest continent
Splintering puppets hiss through wooden grins
Toothless to bite the hand that force-feeds
gets under their skins
This is the long goodbye
The deeper they go, the darker it gets
'Til blood stains the whitewash, liquidates idol threats
The country club's burning, body politic sweats
South Africa’s up in flames
out of time, far too late for regrets.
