The Future
Michael Franti & Spearhead

They talk of the future like it's already the past
They Talk about the future like today will never last
They 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
Its 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 werent 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 futures 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

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 canver 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 its true cause I just got sick of it all
they say the savior's comin he's down at the mall
He's signing 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 futures 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

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

The futures 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

Stay for tomorrow
Stay for tomorrow
