lyrics

remember when we used to dream
of flying cars
and color screens
over skies of blue
and parks of green

we're living in the future now

the monuments are white
and the roads are so clean
trains above the street
pictures everywhere I see

all I thought could not be done
is now resting in my hand
do you remember how it happened so fast?

we're living in the future now

i see a large square box
it's the wealth of all men
it sits in perfect beauty
in the center of the town

its symmetry is silver
and the walls are only glass
it houses all the gold of years past

we're living in the future now

i see a leopard in the box
but he's thrashing all around
he shatters all the glass and steel

all the gold is scattered around
as his fury takes it down
and his tail is curled in power you can feel

we're living in the future now

now we're riding through the clouds
on an american beast
and we're flying towards a mountain that stands holy in the east

and I know when we collide
it will be the final end
and it's time to say goodbye
there is nothing after this

and our bodies will fold
as we dissolve into the sky
and in my dream you're blind
but I'm just crying and crying and crying because I know it's truly the end of all time

we're living in the future now

sit and tell me rome
saw its own demise
that they saw their glory fading with their eyes

if a prophecy is real
how does it make you feel?
if our dreams become real
and we're living in the future now?
