Ain't Got So Far To Go

I am young, but I remember
It was not so long ago
In a line so bright and shiny
This is how the story goes
In the kingdom, there was chaos
And the land was filled with fear
There was hatred, there was envy
In between the rich and poor
Oh the water's rising
How will we get to the other shore?
Many hearts are broken
But we ain't got so far to go
No we ain't got so far to go

In a den of prostitution
To a girl both frail and weak
A child was born who had no father
So she left it on the street
But the child was raised by strangers
Who loved and fed and taught him well
And when he saw the land in darkness
Something changed inside himself
Oh the water's rising
How will we get to the other shore?
Many hearts are broken
But they ain't got so far to go
No we ain't got so far to go

Then it came, the revolution
And the child was filled with fire
And he led us onto victory
And he seemed so strong and wise
But the big fish ate the small ones
It's the way of history
And all the while
Once came for vengeance
I return in mystery
I return in mystery

I miss you more than ever
This is not where I belong
When I see my baby dancing
I will know my work is done
When you hear that guitar playing
You won't have so far to go
Won't have so far to go
Cause we ain't got so far to go
