about

Chilled, slow-building, bluesy song with a catchy chorus and some awesome sounds made entirely by acoustic guitar.

lyrics

In the future, nobody is older
In the future, everybody always looks young
In the future, everybody’s hot forever
In the future, everybody’s song gets sung

Tell me why, nothing ever turns out like we write, in space age or sci-fi
Tell me why, we all think it’s gonna be fine

We could like in a world where people take video with their eyes
But we might find that we would never have the time
To be free, to be free
The future’s what you want it to be
The future’s what you want it to be

In the future, our energy comes from water
In the future, everybody lives on the moon
In the future, there’s shiny robots that cure cancer
But I don’t think, the future’s any time too soon

Tell me why, nothing ever turns out like we write, it’s the future but not quite
There’s no dolphins who travel through time

We could like in a world where people take video with their eyes
But we might find that we would never have the time
To be free, to be free
The future’s what you want it to be
The future’s what you want it to be

Take your science and technology, is that what you want it to be
Superstition and plastic surgery, is that what you want it to be
Success at any cost, or do you want to live a life with balance
Time accepts no apologies

The future’s what you want it to be
The future’s what you want it to be
