Lyrics

The future's here!
F. U. T. U. R. E

Future, never fear
Now we're here for the future
Compare how the time is mine now
So you've done that and been there
Grandfather why you talking to me
About this population of a nation? You know I weren't there
So I hate to say
But I don't care

That stuff's in the past, we can't go back
A people's history is of no use to me
A broken radio transmits how life used to be
No tuning in the F. U. T. U. R. E

F. U. T. U. R. E

Back then never a lock on our door
Not back in the war
The kids weren't scared, the Bobbies cared
The criminals were fair and the beans got shared
But then they came from across the sea
Single-mothers suddenly got houses free
With Turkey-Twizzlers and homosexuality
Well things ain't what they should be

That's in the past, we can't go back
A people's history is of no use to me
A broken radio transmits how life used to be
No tuning in the F. U. T. U. R. E

That's in the past, we can't go back
A people's history is of no use to me

Grandmother, won't you tell another story?
Grandfather gave the best years of his life to this country
So that we could all be free from a fascist tyranny
Now he only goes and votes for BNP
So now let's meet it. Take stock of the past and we'll beat it
Or otherwise we'll just repeat it
Woah. I said we're the future and I meant it
Woah. Best way to predict is invent it

A point so simple to see. F. U. T. U. R. E

That's in the past, we can't go back
A people's history is of no use to me
A broken radio transmits how life used to be
We can't go back, a people's history of how life used to be
The Golden Age of life is just a story to me
I'm looking to the F. U. T. U. R. E

F. U. T. U. R. E
