With Hullabaloo 22

Looming from out of the darkness, the future

Looming from out of the cold, the future


Don’t straighten the wheel, crash and burn

Don’t study history, we’ll never learn


The key to the future lies in the past

Blind eyes, closed ears, our future is cast


Sick at heart at what passes for thought,

Sick in my soul for the lies we have bought


There’s no sense that I can find

There’s no sense of any kind.


Just a tunnel of darkness looming nearer

Just a tunnel of darkness where nothing’s clearer.


Need to slam on the brakes, stop the rush

For the future... me, it’s gonna crush.


Looming from out of the dark, the future

Looming from out of the cold...

Great Mike,
and history is important, which is why I studied it at university. Now it is written by Fox News. Half the population prefer to believe lies nowadays. Nothing really changes, does it? It could be 1936 all over again.

Thanks, Craig--and we keep repeating the mistakes of yesterday instead of learning from them
