The Future Lyrics

The Future (未来) - Teddy Thompson (泰迪汤普森)

Give me back my broken night

My mirrored room

My secret life

It's lonely here

There's no one left to torture

 

Give me absolute control

Over every living soul

And lie beside me baby

That's an order

 

Give me crack and anal sex

Take the only tree that's left

Stuff it up the hole

In your culture

 

Give me back the Berlin wall

Give me Stalin and St Paul

I've seen the future brother

It is murder

 

Things are going to slide

Slide in all directions

Won't be nothing

Nothing you can measure anymore

The blizzard

The blizzard of the world

Has crossed the threshold

And it has overturned

The order of the soul

 

When they said

Repent repent

 

I wonder what they meant

 

When they said

Repent repent

I wonder what they meant

 

When they said

Repent repent

I wonder what they meant

 

You don't know me from the wind

You never will

You never did

I was the little jew

Who wrote the Bible

 

I've seen the nations rise and fall

I've heard their stories

Heard them all

But love's the only engine of survival

 

Your servant here

He has been told

To say it clear

To say it cold

It's over

It ain't going

Any further

 

And now the wheels of heaven stop

You feel the devil's riding crop

Get ready for the future

It is murder

 

Things are going to slide

Slide in all directions

Won't be nothing

Nothing you can measure anymore

The blizzard

The blizzard of the world

Has crossed the threshold

And it has overturned

The order of the soul

 

When they said

Repent repent

I wonder what they meant

 

When they said

Repent repent

I wonder what they meant

 

When they said

Repent repent

I wonder what they meant

 

There'll be the breaking of the ancient

Western code

 

Your private life will suddenly explode

 

There'll be phantoms

There'll be fires on the road

 

And a white man dancing

 

You'll see a woman

Hanging upside down

 

Her features covered by her fallen gown

 

And all the lousy little poets

Coming round

Trying to sound like Charlie Manson

 

And the white man dancin

 

Give me back the Berlin wall

Give me Stalin and St Paul

Give me Christ

Or give me Hiroshima

 

Destroy another fetus now

We don't like children anyhow

I've seen the future baby

It is murder

 

Things are going to slide

Slide in all directions

Won't be nothing

Nothing you can measure anymore

The blizzard

The blizzard of the world

Has crossed the threshold

And it has overturned

The order of the soul

 

When they said

Repent repent

I wonder what they meant

 

When they said

Repent repent

I wonder what they meant

 

When they said

Repent repent

I wonder what they meant I wonder what they meant
