Lyrics

Where do you come from,
if you come from the future?
Where, exactly, is your country?

It is the same one
that the folks know here.
It’s just been changed
so slightly.

Has it been improved?
Has it become worse there?
Has it been improved?
The country from the future.

What kind of country are you from?
You, who are from the future?
It is your country. You created it.
You are from the future.

All the actions that you took
it has helped create your country.
All the actions you condoned,
it too helped create your country.

You are from the future.
The future you created.
You are from the future.

The future country that you will be from!
Be from, the future, future country!
Be from, be from, you’re your future country.

All countries, they have a future,
unless they have been destroyed.
You can’t be from one of those
because you’re from the future.

What great joys will
the future hold for us all?
We might know when we make them.
We might fight out then.

But, what will we make?
What shall we embrace?
As we create the country
that we will be from.

As we make your country
in the future
for the future
of the future
now.
