Lyrics

They’ve always claimed that this day would come
It’s just not supposed to take this long
Just not supposed to take this long
Well, ain’t it a shame that we’d be the ones
It’s just not supposed to take this long
Just not supposed to take this long

Trapped on this jungle of concrete I-10
Hot and deserted, forsaken and frightened
Under the sign that reads “Vieux Carre”
Water galore but not one single drop to drink
Some have expired, many on the brink
Did they forget just where we are?

Dazed and confused, broken and burned
Foul toxic soup around every turn
Hell hath annexed our city
They told us to come to the voluminous dome
Where we would be “safe” in our interim home
That pledge a mendacity

They never claimed this day could come
It’s just not supposed to take this long
Just not supposed to take this long
Who can we blame for the unfortunate ones?
