The Future Lyric

Leonard Cohen Lyrics
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

The Future Give me back my broken night
My mirrored room,
My secret life
Its lonely here,
There's no one
Left to torture
Give me absolute control
Over every living soul
And lie beside me, baby,
Thats an order!

Give me crack and an*l sex
Take the only tree thats left
And stuff it up the hole
In your culture
Give me back the Berlin wall
Give me Stalin and St Paul
Ive seen the future, brother:
It is murder

Things are going to slide,
Slide in all directions
Wont be nothing
Nothing you can measure
The blizzard,
The blizzard of the world
Has crossed the threshold
And it has overturned
The order of the soul
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant

You dont know me from the wind
You never will, you never did
Im the little jew
Who wrote the Bible
Ive seen the nations
Rise and fall
Ive heard their stories,
Heard them all
But loves the only engine
Of survival
Your servant here,
He has been told
To say it clear,
To say it cold:
Its over, it aint going
Any further
And now the wheels
Of heaven stop
You feel the devils riding crop
Get ready for the future:
It is murder

Things are going to slide ...

There'll be the breaking
Of the ancient
Western code
Your private life
Will suddenly explode
Therell be phantoms
Therell be fires on the road
And the white man dancing
Youll see a woman
Hanging upside down
Her features
Covered by her fallen gown
And all the lousy little poets
Coming round
Tryin to sound like
Charlie Manson
And the white man dancin

Give me back the Berlin wall
Give me Stalin and St Paul
Give me Christ
Or give me Hiroshima
Destroy another fetus now
We dont like children anyhow
Ive seen the future, baby:
It is murder

Things are going to slide ...

When they said Repent Repent ...
