"The Future Ain't What It Used To Be" as written by and Percy Miller Raymond Poole....
Ever since you said our love was dead I've come to dread what lies ahead true, I'm going to miss you but let's not skirt the issue-- from now on everything is going to suck. The future ain't what it used to be all the same things are gonna happen to me but they're gonna turn out differently the future ain't what it used to be. I'll still be bored by the same old stuff still falling short of close enough I'm still gonna breathe air but you're not gonna be there seems like a pointless exercise without you the future ain't what it used to be you altered the course of history now you're not gonna be together with me the future ain't what it used to be. I've seen this alot with you now we'll just have to wait and see if this new kid you've got with you honors his big promises where will you be if it's too good to be true start all over with a brand new groupie? It'll be awhile before I'll know where I'll be but when I'm there then I'm there try to find me I'll get one more wish in but there's a strong suspicion everything will seem a little weak now that the future ain't what it used to be the future ain't what it used to be if you're not gonna be together with me with me the future ain't what it used to be.

    General Commenti've never heard this song (i need to obtain this album somehow) but how can you not love a band that has a song called "the future aint what it used to be"? and the lyrics are equally as clever, and i'm willing to bet the music is awesome too...nowhere around me has any MTX selection and its always sold out on their sight. alas
