Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah

Your revolution is a silly idea, yeah
All your friends are feeling sad
It's like you need a reason to be feeling bad, yeah
You sport an armband when you're good and mad, yeah

La la la la, Revolution
(The future never happened)
La la la la, Revolution

I don't know why I'm feeling bad, yeah
I picked up a bad vibration
Oliver North is running for senate
Bomb the abortion clinic
Reagan's defense is the deficit
The virus was invented
Black man can't get acquitted
Of the crimes that we committed
The future never happened, it never happened

La la la la, Revolution
(The future never happened)
La la la la, I picked up a bad vibration

Your revolution is a silly idea, yeah
You tried to look like a punk rock girl
A whole lotta sneer, and little curl
But I don't have time for your theatrics
Everybody knows that you're a bad actress
We've been sorry for way too long, yeah
The scum is rising
Yeah

La la la la, Revolution
(The future never happened)
La la la la, Revolution

La la la la, Revolution
(The future never happened)
La la la la, Revolution, yeah

    General Commentthis song was recorded for 'Batman and Robin' and was supposed to be recorded with the techno act Underworld. 2 versions were recorded, one was an all-out techno track and the other was a rocker that just featured Rick from Underworld singing the background line (the fute-cha neva happ AH unnd).....Stipe hated the techno version Underworld turned in and after a heated fight in the studio Rick walked out. The label used the REM version (that still featured Rick, but un-credited) but let Underwolrd have a song all their own on the soundtrack.

    General CommentA song about how the 60's baby-boomer "revolution" changed everything on the surface---and nothing at the core---how, as John Lennon put it in his ROLLING STONE interviews over 30 years ago, they grew their hair long and fucked around, yet the same ruling asses still are in charge and raping the world. The future never happened, indeed.....
