The Future Is Coming To Get Me (2:55)

in the dark room
at the end of the hallway
where the saviors never came
rocked a trembling child
who despite his lot smiled

oh, the future is coming to get me
the future is calling out
the future would never forget me
and it will not let me down

most of our time we’re waiting
most of our time we’re hanging on

to the doldrums of adulthood
from the powerlessness of youth
we retain the refrain
but its meaning has changed

oh, the future is coming to get me
the future is all around
the future would never forget me
and it cannot let me down
