lyrics

They've stolen our future to sell it back to us
Wrapped up in plastic, infused with industrial waste
And available for four easy payments
They've pulled all our teeth, confiscated our arms
Replaced what they took with electronic distractions
And cognitive dissonance
And the future ain't what it used to be

The lords of our ancestors started this fire
Burning our fields from the past and setting us up
For chronic mediocracy
The wolves would be closing in if they still could
But they're competition so they're dissapearing
Passing into metaphor
And the future ain't what it used to be
No the future ain't hat it used to be

The hand we've been dealt is a hand that can't win
Dealt from the bottom of a deck full of jokers
And the dealer declares that nothing is wild
Tricked into thinking we actually could win
But the rules keep changing to send us all back to zero
This game is rigged!
And the future ain't what it used to be
No the future ain't what it used to be

Today's the tomorrow we looked towards yesterday
Hoping in vain that today would be something it's not
But! Tomorrow's another day!
So together today let's work towards a tomorrow
Not tied to the one that was built for us yesterday
Where everyone plays and nobody loses
'Cause the future ain't what it used to be
No the future ain't what it used to be
Th future ain't what it used to be
