Livin' In The Future

  • A letter come blowin' in
    On an ill wind
    Somethin' 'bout me and you
    Never seein' one another again

    And what I knew had come
    Stars struck deaf and dumb
    Like when we kissed
    That taste of blood on your tongue

    Don't worry, darlin'
    No baby, don't you fret
    We're livin' in the future
    And none of this has happened yet

    Woke up election day
    Sky's gunpowder and shades of grey
    Beneath the dirty sun
    I whistle my time away

    Then just about sun down
    You come walkin' through town
    Your boot heels clickin' like
    The barrel of a pistol spinnin' round

    The earth it gave away
    The sea rose towards the sun
    I opened up my heart to you
    It got all damaged and undone

    My ship Liberty sailed away
    On a bloody red horizon
    The grounds keeper opened the gates
    And let the wild dogs run

    Alone I limp through town
    A lost cowboy at sundown
    Got my monkey on a leash
    Got my ear tuned to the ground

    My faith's been torn asunder
    Tell me is that rollin' thunder
    Or just the sinkin' sound
    Of somethin' righteous goin' under

    None of this has happened yet
    None of this has happened yet
    None of this has happened yet
    None of this has happened yet

  • Kyle from Huntington, NyGreat song off a great album. It's kinda funny how easy it is for an old guy like Bruce to still sell so many albums. Not only is he awesome but its easy with such crappy competition.
