"The Future"


Tell me why the grass was greener,
Years ago, I swear, it used to grow here,
But no more here.

Tell me why on this hill,
All the birds they used to come to fly here,
Come to die here.

Tell me why I need to know,
Sometimes I wish I didn't have to know
All you've shown me.

Hey world, what you say,
Should I stick around for another day or two?
Don't give up on me, I won't give up on you.
Just believe in me like I believe in you.

Tell me why, on the corner,
All the kids that used to come to run here,
Load their guns here.

And tell me why it's okay to kill in the name of the Gods we pray,
Tell me who said it's okay to die in the name of the lies we say,
Tell me why there's child soldiers,
Tell me why they close the borders,
Tell me how to fight disease, and
Tell me now, won't you please

The only thing I want to do
Is to be in the arms of someone who
Believes in me, like I believe in you

And I sayThey talk of the future like it's already the past
They Talk about the future like today will never last
Thay talk of the future while their diggin' through your trash
Taxman come to remove your cash
They talk of the future like a criminal plans
Corporate robberies in far off lands
They tell you the future's a big wonderland
And that homeland security's got a career for you
Don't you believe what they told you before
It's the same frikin' lies that they'll tell you some more
They searchin' your bag as you're boarding the plane
And they telling your neighbors that you went insane
I wouldn't believe that this was all coming true
If I could not see with my eyes that it's true
Even still I hope the future gets here soon
Bring it on bring it on

The future's comin' on like a bomb
The whole worlds rockin' and the beat goes on [x2]
Ready or not we're bringing it on
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on

They take all your privacy give it away
And for musical piracy lock you away
They tell you that war is a permanent thing
And American Idol kids really can sing
Potheads on a rescue mission,
Put your cancer in remission
People starving, malnutrition
Work your abs into condition

Oh no now they after your soul
And they're telling you now that you're losing control
Well it's true cause I just got sick of it all
They say the savior's comin he's down at the mall
He's signing some autographs and selling them all
Pick up the phone now and make the call
I wouldn't believe that this is all coming true
If I could not see with my eyes that it's true
Even still I hope the future gets here soon
Bring it on bring it on

The future's comin' on like a bomb
The whole worlds rockin' and the beat goes on [x2]
Ready or not we're bringing it on
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on

Stay for Tomorrow
Stay For Tomorrow
They talk of the future like today will never last
They talk of the future like it's already the past
They talk of the future while their diggin' through your trash
Taxman come to remove your cash

The future's comin' on like a bomb
The whole worlds rockin' and the beat goes on
Ready or not we're bringing it on
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on [x2]

Stay for tomorrow
Stay for tomorrow
Hey world what you say,
Should I stick for around for another day
Hey world what you say,
Should I stick for around for another day
Hey world what you say,
Should I stick for around for another day or two?

Don't give up on me, I won't give up
And I try, try, try, try,
I try, try, try, try,
On you
Don't give up on me
And I cry, cry, cry, cry,
I cry, cry, cry, cry,
You
Just believe in me like I believe

Hey world, what you say
Hey world, what you say
Hey world, what you say
Should I stick around for another day
Hey world, what you say
Should I stick around for another day or two?

Don't give up on me, I won't give up on you
Just believe in me like I believe in you

Don't give up on me

Hey world, what you say
Hey world, what you say
Hey world, what you say
Hey world, what you say?
