Another one from the backlog. I started this about 10 months ago, but when I read Elon Musk is building rockets out of stainless steel I thought I better get a move on.

This took a while, in part because the Theremin is harder than it at first appears, even if you want it to sound cheesy…

Living in the Future Now
Lyrics (cc)BY D A Ayer 2018-10-30
Efm

I live in the future Now.
My house makes my breakfast but I don’t know how.
I live in a future town
but the same old local politics are getting me down.
Everything’s nice and clean and stainless.
In school they teach the kids that adolescence is painless.
There’s a drug for every symptom — two if you’re nice —
And we’re so diverse we’re all alike as laboratory mice.
I live in the future Now. The future Now…

I married my future wife
but I had to take a mortgage on the rest of my life.
We live in a future whirl
where sometimes I can’t tell if she’s a robot or a girl.
Now everything we need is just a keypress away;
we’re shopping, shopping, shopping through the night and the day.
Deliveries are endless to our snug little hive
while our neighbors troll each other just to feel like they’re alive.
We live in the future Now. The future Now…

The future’s a lovely place
as long you’ve got money and a nice pretty face.
I work at a future biz
though I’d rather be in Eden but I don’t know where it is.
I’ve got no time to worship in a typical way
so I pray to mobile advertisers seven times a day.
Every link that I follow is a miserable read
and I hope someday redemption just shows up on my feed.
‘cause I live in the future Now. The future Now…

I live in the future Now.
My house makes me breakfast but I don’t know how.
I live in a future town
where the same old local politics are getting me down.
Everything’s nice and clean and stainless.
In school they teach the kids that adolescence is painless.
There’s a drug for every symptom — two if you’re nice —
and we’re so diverse we’re all alike as laboratory mice
We live in the future Now. The future Now…
We live in the future Now!
