04. One Of These Days

The Greater Cause
by John Schlitt


Outside it is getting warm
People finding truth, something worth fighting for
One word and a flame ignites
Burning down the walls, lighting up the night
Who knew, it’d come
One of these days

Sometimes you can wait too long
And the life you live makes you vulnerable
How long ‘till we stand and fight?
‘Till the hunger grows and the pain is right?
It all will change
One of these days
It all will change

When will truth be the truth again?
When will hope not fade away?
When will change ever come to an end?
I wonder if today
Is “one of these days?”

Long ways from paradise
Even longer still when you realize
How much did it slip away
When we turned our heads
Looked the other way
But now we have to take it back
And now we don't have to wonder

(repeat chorus)

One of these days with my eyes wide open
One of these days gonna take a stand

How long ‘till we stand and fight?
‘Till the hunger grows and the pain is right?

(repeat chorus x 2)
