Benjamin Booker - Slow Coming

English

Slow Coming

At the top of the hour
Today in the news
A little girl is shot down
While tying her shoes
 
Honestly, how can I be proud right now?
To tell you the truth, I ain't been sleeping too well
 
Although our parents
Fought to be equal
The State decides true love
If they only knew it
 
Honestly, how can I be proud right now?
To tell you the truth, I ain't been sleeping too well
 
Today he gets five stars
For learning to read
Too bad he’s not from here
He better learn to weed
 
Even though computers are taking up my time;
Even though there’s satellites roaming in space;
Even though my phone predicts the weather;
We still can’t help you
Even though computers are taking up my time;
Even though there’s satellites roaming in space;
Even though my phone predicts the weather;
We still can’t help you
 
The future is slow coming, honey
The future is slow, slow coming
The future is slow coming up
The future is slow, slow coming
