"Will The Future Blame Us" as written by Michael Maida, Jeremy Taggart, Duncan Coutts, Steve Mazur and Bob Rock....
Are you disappointed,
And have we destroyed it?
I, well I've been stumbling down this long and winding road
And these times are changing,
And it's complicated,
I, well I don't want to know

[Chorus]
And I, don't ask why, anymore
And I, don't ask why, anymore
Anymore

Is it getting better,
And can we live forever?
I, and I'm not sure what the hell we're fighting for
Does the money make us,
And will the future blame us?
I, oh, I don't want to know

[Chorus]

When you're tired and alone,
And you feel like letting go,
Come home
When you can't take anymore,
When you're beat up and ignored,
Come home

The son is headed home
The pastor you don't know
You're a long, long way from home
There are things you need to know,
The answers leave you cold
You're a long, long way from home
The summer's coming back,
And it brings a second chance
If you're not part of this,
Then I don't want to know

[Chorus]

When you're tired and alone,
And you feel like letting go,
Come home
When you can't take anymore,
And you're beat up and ignored,
Come home
I'm coming home.

    General CommentHere's the proper lyrics, straight from the Our Lady Peace site:

    Are you disappointed and have we destroyed it all
    I’ve been stumbling down this long and winding road
    These times are changing and it’s complicated
    Well I don’t wanna know

    And I don’t ask why anymore
    And I don’t ask why anymore, anymore

    And is it getting better, can we live forever
    I’m not sure what the hell we’re fighting for
    Does the money make us, and will the future blame us
    Oh I don’t wanna know

    And I don’t ask why anymore
    And I don’t ask why anymore, anymore

    When you’re tired and alone and you feel like letting go
    Come home
    When you can’t take anymore, when you’re beat up and ignored
    Come home

    You’re the sun inside the hole ,the past that you don’t know
    A long, long way from home
    There are things you need to know, the answers leave you cold
    You’re a long, long way from home
    The summer’s coming back and it brings a second chance
    If you’re not part of this then I don’t wanna know

    And I don’t ask why anymore
    And I don’t ask why anymore, anymore

    When you’re tired and alone and you feel like letting go
    Come home
    When you can’t take anymore, when you’re beat up and ignored
    Come home

    You’re coming home


    Again, I think this song is pretty much about what's going on in the middle-east.

    General CommentI'm not sure if it is or not. It all depends on when Raine went to Africa - I thought he went last year.

    This song originally was made in 2003, and it had the same chorus. But the rest of the lyrics could have obviously changed since then.

    I do agree that this CD is mostly about the middle east.

    General Commentthis song is about the middle east just as much as its about North Korea or Congo or Cambodia or 9/11
    there is nothing in the song that indicates a specific war zone.
    i think its about our detirioration as a species.

    General Commenti do agree this is a political song but i also interpret it as being about a relationship ending and wondering whether you made the right decision or whether youl wake up one day alone blaming your younger self for throwing away the best thing yu ever had. i find all the lyrics fit with this interpretation.awsome song

    General Commentdoes anyone else think "come home" means to GO to the middle east or anywhere that's AWAY from where we are...
    cuz raine said that the culture shock wasnt from GOING to the middle east, it was coming home and i think coming home just means being able to get away from all the crap thats deteriorating north american society right now
    how does that sound?

    General CommentRaine went to Iraq by the way. I read it in an interview about the new album. this, like all of the songs from Healthy in Paranoid Times, is unbelieveable, and very powerful.

    General CommentI don't get very much political such and so out of this song... And I usually get political refferences alot. All this song says to me is "Will the future looks back at our generation as a good thing or a bad thing?"
