Versuri Eagles - Long Road Out of Eden

Moon shinin? down through the palms 
Shadows movin? on the sand 
Somebody whisperin? the twenty-third psalm 
Dusty rifle in his tremblin? hands 
Somebody tryin? just to stay alive 
He got promises to keep 
Over the ocean in America 
Far away and fast asleep 
Silent stars blinkin? in the blackness of an endless sky 
Cold silver satellites, ghostly caravans passin? by 
Galaxies unfoldin?, new world?s bein? born 
Pilgrims and prodigals creepin? toward the dawn 
And it's a long road out of Eden 
Music blastin? from an SUV 
On a bright and sunny day 
Rollin? down the Interstate 
In the good old USA 
Havin? lunch at The Petroleum Club 
Smokin' fine cigars and swappin' lives 
He said, "Give me another slice of that barbecued brisket 
Give me another piece of that pecan pie" 
Freeways flickerin?, cell phones chimin? a tune 
We're ridin? to utopia, road map says we'll be arrivin? soon 
Captains of the old order clingin? to the reins 
Assurin? us these aches inside are only growin? pains 
But it's a long road out of Eden 
Back home, I was so certain the path was very clear 
But now I have to wonder what are we doin? here? 
I'm not countin? on tomorrow and I can't tell wrong from right 
But I'd give anythin? to be there in your arms tonight 
Weavin? down the American highway 
Through the litter and the wreckage and the cultural junk 
Bloated with entitlement, loaded on propaganda 
Now we're drivin? dazed and drunk 
Been down the road to Damascus, the road to Mandalay 
Met the ghost of Caesar on the Appian way 
He said, "It's hard to stop this bingein? once you get a taste 
But the road to empire is a bloody stupid waste" 
Behold the bitten apple, the power of the tools 
But all the knowledge in the world is of no use to fools 
And it's a long road out of Eden
