they say that in the future

you won't have to travel far
there will not be a motor boat
an airplane or a car
you'll step inside a little box
three seconds, there you are
they say that in the future
you won't have to travel far
 
they say that in the future
you will look just like a dream
your skin a textured piece of silk
with eyes like jewels that gleam
your teeth a pristine sculpture
hairstyles done by laser beam
they say that in the future
you will look just like a dream
 
they say that in the future
you will have no need to dine
a daily pill supplied to you
will keep you running fine
a perfect mix of vitamins
of well thought out design
they say that in the future
you will have no need to dine
 
they say that in the future
there will be no books to read
yet there'll be thrilling stories
in which you will play the lead
a virtual experience
with everything you need
they say that in the future
there will be no books to read
 
i do not want this future
all these things are not for me
for i enjoy the journey
and the lovely things you see
stuff my ugly face with tacos
while i read beneath a tree
i do not want this future
all these things are not for me
