Time moves like the cars on the street
A million miles from here to nowhere
The only thing real is the fact
That you search for a way just to try not to get there

Another day
Another problem
Another way for me to solve them
The things you do are so mysterious
When the things get so serious

The shape...
The shape... of things to come has just begun, alright

Don't be afraid of the future
It doesn't include you
It only removes you
It's the only way out of the past
Out of the now
Out of the anything

Another day
Another battle
Another cage for me to rattle
And what is gone is never new
So let your mind explode in two

The shape...
The shape... of things to come has just begun, alright
The shape...
The shape... of things to come has just begun, alright

Don't turn your back and walk away
Don't turn your back and walk away
Don't turn your back and walk away
It will lead you straight back to your yesterday
Take your place straight up in the line
Place the blindfold over your eyes
So many stories that need to be told
It doesn't matter ‘cause you're already sold

The shape...( don't let it end without you )
The shape...( don't let it be that way ) of things to come has just begun, alright

The shape...( don't let it end without you )
The shape...( don't let it be that way ) of things to come has just begun, alright

    To me, it seems like its about how life is basically pointless, and we all know it by try to avoid realizing that. Despite that, people should face the future anyway instead of trying to hide from it.
