I went out with my umbrella and looked a little grim
The sky was black the air was cold the day was grey and dim
But as I strolled towards my goal the sun burst through the clouds
I threw down my umbrella and then I cried out loud

Oh the future is the past that hasn't happened yet
And everybody knows that what you see is what you get
But the movies in your mind is a place you can not find
And if you see ahead you are missing your behind

I drove out to the airport, I tried not to be late
But I was very nervous as I walked up to the gate
I dreamed I saw an albatross that soared across the sky
And then I heard our plane had crashed and everyone had died

Oh the future is the past that hasn't happened yet
And everybody knows that what you see is what you get
But the movies in your mind is a place you can not find
And if you look ahead you are missing your behind

I learned I had a tumor, I knew that I would die
I made a will I took a pill and prayed to God on high
But when I walked toward them I learned the truth at last
I'd been born in my own colon and the world was up my ass

Oh the future is the past that hasn't happened yet
And everybody knows that what you see is what you get
But the movies in your mind is a place you can not find
And if you look ahead you are missing your behind

I don't wanna a model army life
Gee mom I wanna go back to Ontario
Gee mom I wanna go home
