Old man sitting by the side of the road He's not watching the birds today He's not watching the sunset like he always does He's looking at the future He has seen the past School boy passes by interrupts his thoughts He said sir, can you spare me a dollar I got to make in time for my grade 8 class I am fresh out of cigarettes And I can't be late The old man said
Chorus The world is changing Take your time, look around Make the right decision
He has no crystal ball But he sees the future Doesn't like what he sees, but what can he do Little girl passes by with a baby in her arms He thinks it's her mother's But no, it is her own She's only twelve years old for crying out loud With his trembling finger He wipes away the tears If this is the future, he doesn't wanna be part of it
Chorus The world is changing Take a time, look around Make the right decision
Old man sitting by the side of his bed. When he goes to sleep tonight He won't have no sweet dreams He'll be haunted by ghosts from the future Welcome to the future.
