Seen The Future

from Alienated by Shapeshifters



Seen the Future was a band and crowd favorite which ended up on a soundtrack of an indie film called “Films That Suck.” I remember playing this song at the Bristol Theatre when we opened for Junior Brown. His country crowd didn’t know what to think of us. People in the front were covering their ears. Good times indeed.


Got a lonely wife, a beat up truck, a hungry little boy
Too many bills to pay
I got a joint as big as my leg
Waiting for me at the end of the day
Gotta plan an attitude, a cheapo tank of gas
Got my underwear packed
Got a map of Area 51
Don't plan on coming back

I have seen the future and I'm going around it
I'm gonna build a rocket and put my ass on it

Been watching the stars real close
Gonna hit my window like a bayonet
Got a truck load of solid fuel
From an Israeli at the AMVETS
Have the same dream every night
Sit waiting on the launching pad
Thinking about my city on the moon
With my pale little almond-eyed dad

I don't care if I miss work, I don't care, I don't care, I won’t lie
I just want to see that face on Mars up close before I die

I've got a guitar won't stay in tune
I've got an amp on the fritz
I've got a new song that I can't sing
Cause the words don't seem to fit
Eleven starts the count down
Gonna burn a hole in the sky
I'll be singing at the speed of light
Hitting a G-chord when I fry
