We Need a Future

This song was created for Game of Bands round 258 : "Nostalgia"

Lyrics:

You want to go back to good ol' times
When saying a joke wasn't a crime
It was much simpler for you
Today everything's taboo
We're sorry for you , times are changing
Ladies and gents, get on with the program, you're the ones dreaming

Time to wake up
We're living in the present
Good riddance to the past
It wasn't so pleasant
Don't look behind
Look ahead to the future
Good riddance to the past
It wasn't better

You want to return to simpler times
When being out and about was a crime
But of course you're not a bigot
you just prefer them inside the closet
You might prefer to feel on top
For others to lick your boot

Time to wake up
We're living in the present
Good riddance to the past
It wasn't so pleasant
Don't look behind
Look ahead to the future
Good riddance to the past
It wasn't better

We need a future without racism
It must be better than before
A future without gender roles
Without sexism
It must be better than the past
Must be better than today

We need a future

It must be better than before
A future without hunger
Without wars
It must be better than the past
Must be better than today

You want things to go your way
For us to have nothing to say
[Exit]
