In The Year 2525
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.
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.
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.
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 throught eternal night,
The twinkling of starlight,
So very far away,
Maybe it's only yesterday...
