Lyrics

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 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 hanging limp at your side You legs got nothing to do Some machine's doing that for you In the year 6565 Ain't gonna need no husband Won't need no wife You'll pick your sons, pick your daughters too From the bottom of a long glass tube Whoa-oh-oh In the year 7510 If God's a-coming He ought to make it by then Maybe he'll look around himself and say "Guess it's time for the Judgement Day." In the year 8510 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 Whoa-oh-oh In the year 9595 I'm kinda wondering If man is gonna be alive; He's taken everything this old Earth can give And he ain't put back nothing Whoa-oh-oh 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 the eternal night The twinkling of starlight So very far away Maybe it's only yesterday... 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 or say Is in the pill you took today ....(fading...)
