Beach Boys — Long Promised Road lyrics

So hard to answer future's riddle
When ahead is seeming so far behind
So hard to laugh a child-like giggle
When the tears start to torture my mind

So hard to she'd the life of before
To let my soul automatically soar

But I hit hard at the battle
That's confronting me, yeah
Knock down all the
Road blocks stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles
That are binding me down

Sew up the wounds of evolution
And the now starts to get in my way
So what if life's a revelation
If the mind speaks of only today

So real, the pain growing in my soul
Of climbing up to reality's goal

But I hit hard at the battle
That's confronting me, yeah
Knock down all the
Road blocks stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles
That are binding me down
(Down, down, down)

Long promised road
Trail starts at dawn
Carries on to
The season's ending
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/beach-boys-long-promised-road-lyrics.html ]
Long promised road
Flows to the source, gentle force
Never ending, never ending

So hard to lift the jeweled sceptre
When the weight turns a smile to a frown
So hard to drink of passion nectar
When the taste of life's holding me down

So hard to plant the seed of reform
To set my sights on defeating the storm

So I hit hard at the battle
That's confronting me, yeah
Knock down all the
Road blocks stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles
That are binding me down
(Down, down, down)

Hit hard at the battle
That's confronting me, yeah
Knock down all the
Road blocks stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles
That are binding me down
(Down, down, down) yeah

Hit hard at the battle
That's confronting me, yeah
Knock down all the
Road blocks stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles
That are binding me down
(Down, down, down)

I'd love to see you
I'd love to see you
I'd love to see you...
