The future
The future
The future

Well I've been looking, looking for an answer
Somebody promised me one
And I've been waiting, waiting for the chance
Well somebody said it would come

Wake me up when we hit 2001

And I've been talking talking to the maker
Of the compromise
They said, "She's fine, call the undertaker"
You shouldn't look surprised

Wake me up when we hit 2001
Wake me up when we hit 2001

Oh it's barely alive with a story at five
So turn your video on
We live in these years, dark age of fear
Meet me in 2001

I saw my sister
Saw the ones who twist her, a social suicide
If looks could kill each and every cheap thrill
Could be a homicide

Wake me up when we hit 2001
Wake me up when we hit 2001

Oh it's barely alive with a story at five
So turn your video on
We live in these years, dark age of fear
Meet me in two, zero, zero, one

I've been searching, I've been searching searching for a reason
To either fight or fly
Either way patriot or treason
It's gonna be one long hard ride

Wake me up when we hit 2001
Wake me up when we hit 2001
Wake me up when we hit 2001
Wake me up when we hit 2001

The future
The future
The future
