    "Long Time Gone" Lyrics

    I remember a funny man who used to make us laugh
    But the proof of his truth, they cut his life in half
    A caustic wit that cut a bit, opinions were too strong
    He must have rubbed somebody wrong
    Cause he's long time gone

    I remember a crucial man, played strat' with his left hand
    Tunes he chose of "Gold and Roe" and "Castles Made of Sand"
    Social ills, hi conscience willed a different type of song
    Sang about "lead", click, bang! He's dead, he's long time gone

    I remember an ebony prince who taught his brothers pride
    Said the black man's loss, just another cross on which another prophet has died
    Some people wanted them leaderless, a race of hungry pawns
    Their solution to his revolution: To make him long time gone

    Though some will object when you suspect
    That they cause to affect the cause and effect
    When you reflect on lives that were checked
    Still in retrospect the truth was neglected
    Though some will protect the order they pecked
    For failing to suspect the cleansing effect
    Till you they reject with a Haitian insect
    With AIDS they infect by a bite on the neck
    Like the Nazi correct, kill and dissect
    "The inferior Sect", their race to protect

    I remember a gentleman who took his cause o far
    Said not to be afraid but to parade and be just what you are
    Defied the name of guilt and shame, he proved his skeptics wrong
    Must have said something wrong, 'cause now he's long time gone
