Someday (August 29, 1968)

Album: Chicago Transit Authority (1969)
  • Would you look around you now
    And tell me what you see
    Faces full of hate and fear
    Faces full of me
    Do you feel the rumblings
    As your head comes crumbling down
    Do you know what I mean

    Run, you better, run you know
    The End is getting near
    Feel the wind of something hard
    Come whistling past your ear
    As they try to get you
    Where it will upset you
    Down
    Now you know what I mean

    Someday you will see how long
    We've waited for the time
    To show you how we've died
    To get together with you all

    Twist and turn your head around
    'Till everything's unclear
    Twist and turn your arm around
    Until it is not there
    And they'd love to burn you
    Or at least to turn you around
    Now you know what I mean

    Can you look around you now
    And tell us what's to be
    Can you look inside yourself
    And tell us what you see
    As you feel the rumblings
    As your head comes crumbling down
    And you know what I mean
    Someday you will see how long
    We've been waiting for the time
    To show you how we've died
    To get together with you all
