In the year 2525
If man is still alive

If woman can survive they may find
In the year 3535
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth tell no lies

Everything you think do and say is in the pill you took today
In the year 4545
You ain't gonna need your teeth won't need your eyes

You won't find a thing to chew, nobody's gonna look at you
In the year 5555
Your arms are hangin' limp at you side

Your legs got nothin' to do, some machines doin' that for you
In the year 6565
Ain't gonna need no husband won't need no wife

You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too
From the bottom of a long glass tube
In the year 7015
If God's a-coming he oughta make it by then

Maybe he'll look around himself and say
Guess it's time for the judgment day
In the year 8015
God is gonna shake his mighty head

He'll either say, I'm pleased where man has been
Or tear it down and start again
In the year 9595
I'm kind a wond'rin' if man is gonna be alive

He's taken everything this old earth can give
And he ain't put back nothin'
Now it's been ten thousand years, man has cried a billion tears
For what he never knew, now man's reign is through

But through eternal night the twinkling of starlight
So very far away, maybe it's only yesterday
In the year 2525
If man is still alive
In the year 2525
