"Futures" as written by Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker....
Made a note of it
Did you write it on your hand
Put a name on it
To help you understand

Well do you see
The futures holidays are for me
Just let me know
Where we go after the fall

Like the sound of it
Gonna hang it on your wall
Turn and run with it
For the sake of one and all
Where you go, nobody knows

Well do you see
The futures holidays are for me
Just let me know
Where to go
Where you go after the fall

    Song MeaningI had a completely different impression of the song from the first time I head it. The song is about the environment and how we are destroying our future.

    Each verse makes the historical links between science, capitalism, and consumerism. In each there is an act through which we take possession of something. But the aggregate of our individual actions is destroying the planet. And at the same time we have and idea, a myth of some future, the futures holidays, where things will still be able to continue much as they have been.

    The narrator questions, "Just let me know, where we go after the fall."
    The narrator doubts the myth.
    The the narrator states, "Where you go, nobody knows.'
    But like many of us the narrator continues to believe that there can be a way out.
    "Just let me know, Where to go, Where you go after the fall"

    When I saw the video I was convinced that I had it.
    I never even thought about it the way that others are.
    Now I begin to doubt.

    General CommentJose Gonzalez sounds very identical to Jose Feliciano (famous for Faliz Navidad) on this track, so much so that I thought it was him before looking it up. This is a great track, very clean eclectic rock tune, not too trippy, not too electronica, it's just right.

    General Commentoh yeah..i think its just about dissappearing for the winter to a nice place and forgetting the world for a spell while the world does the same about you. i think it involves 2 people on the vacation

    General CommentMaybe its about a relationship between a boy and a girl that was good but some circumstance forced them to split...perhaps she had to move far away for college or work or just because her family is moving.

    This song could be about false hopes...he presents to her that he wants to go wherever she is going to hide from the truth...that deep inside he knows he will have to let her go...and it will burn like hell.

    Whatever this song means...from the tone of the music...I get a very melancholy vibe. There's nothing happy about it.
