"The Future" as written by and Eric James Victorino....
Can't help but wonder about what's underneath these city streets
The wires and cables tangled up connecting everything
And down below we'll find the bones of people from the past
People with dreams about the future

And when we die our empty bodies turn to dust
Ther'll be no pit of fire
No angels singing songs for us
There's nothing we can say that people won't forget someday
There's nothing we can do that matters
That's okay

Just when you think you've got it all worked out
That's probably when they'll put you in the ground

Just when I think I've got it all worked out
That's probably when they'll put me in the ground

(Just when I think I've got it all worked out
That's probably when they'll put me in the ground)x2 speed

Ain't got much faith in god or modern-day mythology
The lies and fables, fate and luck, directing everything
So down we go down like dominoes, our lives go by too fast
Nobody lives to see the future

And when we die, buildings and bridges left to rust
No heaven in the sky, no pearly gates on clouds and stuff
The monuments will crumble and decay someday
There's nothing we can do that matters

Just when you think you've got it all worked out
That's probably when they'll put you in the ground

Just when I think I've got it all worked out
That's probably when they'll put me in the ground

The Future

Hey!

I wanna laugh as many times
As I can
Before I die
I wanna love
I wanna smile
I don't need much
I'm a simple child

I wanna laugh as many times
As I can
Before I die
I wanna love
I wanna smile
Just wanna fuck
Every once in a while

I just wanna fuck every once in a while

I think I finally got it all worked out
Somebody come and put me in the ground

I think I finally got it all worked out
Somebody come and put me in the ground

Can't help but wonder about what's underneath these city streets
The wires and cables tangled up connecting everything

    I love this whole album, but this song is my favorite. The message is so perfect. Live your life as fully as you can, because you never know when it will end and it's the only one you're going to get.
