Lyrics:

Got no future, we live in the past
There's no future, nothing lasts
They feed us[?] promises they can't keep
Was it all for nothing, yet still we sleep
To [?] yourself in pictures, man on the run
The writing's on the wall, what have they done?

Oh, it seems that we're together, oh yes
It's so cool, I look around
Got my vinyl, got my iPad
Got my memorabilia that I will treasure forever

What can I say, no constitution, they took it away
We the people have got no rights
Totalitarian plan is headed our way
Always seems like yesterday, laughing, oh yes, ha ha
[?] everyone, the blind leading the blind, leaving us all in the dark

C'est la vie, I'm going nowhere, are you coming my way?
Got no future, it's all up for grabs
Is it all for nothing? I guess nothing lasts

Well, everybody sing
And do your thing
No matter what they say, the future's here to stay

Oh, got no future, got no faith
Was it all for nothing, or just one big mistake
We've got a big future, there's gotta be a way
If we all come together, love will show the way
Build a better future, no matter what they say
Better change your mind before they blow us away

Can't you see you're in a dream, don't you get it? Oh yes
I'm so proud of your intellect, ego, oh oh, so fame[?] it's insane
Just let it go
(Well everybody sing)

No matter what they say, the future's here to stay
Well everybody sing
And do your thing
No matter what they say, the future's here to stay

Oh, everybody's talking about the end of the world
[?]

No matter what they say, the future's here to stay
