Dreadful anticipation or present-day satire? You decide.


We're living in the future
we cracked the spiral code
computers in our pockets
and gridlock on the road
we eat organic waffles
and mow our yards with goats
we're living in the future
they rammed it down our throats

We're living in the future
it's ominous and weird
but robots still take orders
it's better than we feared
we've got a million channels
but all the news is fake
we're living in the future
there must be some mistake

We're living in the future
they've got us on our backs
we haven't got our flying cars
or personal rocket packs
the internet remembers
what we tried to forget
we're living in the future
and it's not over yet

We're living in the future
more future every day
we're photographing pluto
while glaciers melt away
and time deals three-card monte
with jokers up its sleeve
we're living in the future
cuz it's too late to leave
