I know everything is never much
Sound of the sound you heard was serious
So take back everything you ever got
Cause this is the future that…that never was

Right
That’s right
[I never would have imagined it would be anything like this]
Right
[I never would have imagined it would be anything like this]

The pages turned around from what it was
So maybe I’ll hate you now just because
The burden is tiresome and has become
The same as the future that…that never was

Right
That’s right
[I never would have imagined it would be anything like this]
Right
[I never would have imagined it would be anything like this]

The dream that you dreamed about…it never came
Step back and look around…now who’s to blame
Your voice is weaker now…it’s just a buzz
It sounds like the future that…that never was

    General CommentThis song put me to sleep once, listening to it. It sounds kinda industrial, in a cosmic sense at first, which is a side I like about powerman 5000. And then gets nice and peaceful.

    General CommentBeautiful. Seems to be about how, as a society, we just keep going backwards instead of forward
