Hear dis

They talk of the future like it's already the past
They talk of the future like today will never last
Talk of the future while their diggin' through your trash
Taxman come to remove your cash

They talk of the future like a criminal plans
Corporate robberies in far off lands
They tell you the future's a big wonderland
And that homeland security's got a career for you

Don't you believe what they told you before
It's the same frikin' lies that they'll tell you some more
They searchin' your bag as you're boardin' the plane
And they tellin' your neighbors that you ain't insane

I wouldn't believe that this was all comin' true
If I could not see with my eyes that it's true
Even still I hope the future gets here soon
Bring it on, bring it on

The future's comin' on like a bomb
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on
Ready or not we're bringin' it on
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on

The future's comin' on like a bomb
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on
Ready or not we're bringin' it on
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on

The future

They take all your privacy, give it away
For musical piracy lock you away
They tell you that war is a permanent thing
And American Idol kids really can sing

Potheads on a rescue mission, put your cancer in remission
People starvin', malnutrition, work your abs into condition
Oh no, now they after your soul
And they're tellin' you now that you're losin' control

Well, it's true cause I just got sick of it all
They say the savior's comin', he's down at the mall
He's signin' autographs and sellin' them all
Pick up the phone now and make the call

I wouldn't believe that this is all comin' true
If I could not see with my eyes that it's true
Even still I hope the future gets here soon
Bring it on, bring it on

The future's comin' on like a bomb
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on
Ready or not we're bringin' it on
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on

The future's comin' on like a bomb
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on
Ready or not we're bringin' it on
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on

Stay for tomorrow, stay for tomorrow

They talk of the future like today will never last
Talk of the future like it's already past
Talk of the future while their diggin' through your trash
Taxman come to remove your cash

I hope the future gets here soon
Bring it on, bring it on

The future's comin' on like a bomb
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on
Ready or not we're bringin' it on
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on

The future's comin' on like a bomb
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on
Ready or not we're bringin' it on
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on

The future's comin' on like a bomb
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on
Ready or not we're bringin' it on
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on

The future's comin' on like a bomb
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on
Ready or not we're bringin' it on
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on

The future, the future
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on
The future, the future
The whole world's rockin' and the beat goes on

Stay for tomorrow
