Each moment's just a reflex
Response is just a motion
The pressure never ends baby
I hope it don't drive me crazy
I don't wanna be a poor boy
It don't help to say gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme
I ain't foolin' myself now
All I know is what I feel

I know I don't like it
You can't disagree
Come on, say it'll be alright
I say yeah, yeah, yeah

Future tense, gone too far
Future tense, a world apart
Future tense, more than a feeling in my heart
Oh yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I feel a little unbalanced
Between the pros and the con men
I try for satisfaction
You always let it slide
Every day is like the last day
Whatever happened to 50, 50, 50, 50
I don't have a solution
All I know is what I feel baby

I heard about the good life
I'd like to give it a try
They say it's gonna be alright
I say yeah, yeah, yeah

Future tense, is what I feel
Future tense, is what I see
Future tense, as much for you as it is for me
Oh yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah)

If you don't like somebody
Say "leave me alone"
It's just like a bad time
You have to make good on your own

We're racing through time now
It's all hit and run
You say it's gonna be alright
I say yeah, yeah, yeah

Future tense, we've gone too far
Future tense, a world apart
Future tense, more than a feelin' in my heart
Oh no (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh no (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh no (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh no (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh no (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh no (yeah, yeah, yeah)
No (yeah), no (yeah), no (yeah), oh no
