I was painfully aware
I was painfully unprepared
Though I did my best to make everything right

And I spent some time alone
On the surface of the sun
And I burned away to what I once was

All that time I have wasted
All that time I was wasted

It doesn't matter now
Because I have seen the future
It's amazing
We will fall to our knees
Faster cars and stronger cures
You won't get wet when it's raining
And no death and no pain

In November of last year
I thought I could use a change
So I quit my job and got myself a home
But it turns out I was wrong
Just another wasted year
And the knowledge that a duplex doesn't save

All that time I have wasted
All that time I was wasted

It doesn't matter now
Because I have seen the future
It's amazing
We will fall to our knees
Faster cars and stronger cures
You won't get wet when it's raining
And no death and no pain

    General CommentThe lyrics are wrong.

    It's not "And no death and no pain"

    It's "And no death penalty."
