I am impressed with the game analysis program that lichess has. It seems pretty strong and fast. However, I'd like to be able to use this software on my own machine and have it analyze games longer. Is there any way to do that?

I think you'll find that the game analysis mode in Lucas Chess is quite similar, but actually even better. Worth a shot.

You can download the game PGN data and input into your software.

To do so, just go to your game (you want to analyse), click the analysis button, then at the bottom of the page, click the "FEN & PGN" tab and download the PGN data.

Hopefully this works.

Yeah, I see you can get the PGN and use my own software, but I love the way lichess does it. I was hoping to use the same software...

You can get the specific _engine_ lichess uses here, though you will have to compile it yourself: It is only supported on Unix-like systems (Linux, OS X, etc). However, that code is just the engine. If you want the user interface, you are probably out of luck I'm afraid, unless you are an expected Scala programmer and systems administrator.

There are Stockfish apps (with UI) available for multiple platforms:
