The Future

Leonard Cohen / Leonard Cohen: The Future (1992)

Am Dm
- Give me back my broken night, my mirrored room, my secret life,
G6 E7 Am
It's lonely here, there's no one left to torture.
Dm
Give me absolute control over every living soul
G6 Am
And lie beside me, baby, that's an order!
Dm
Give me crack and anal sex, take the only tree that's left,
G6 E7 Am
stuff it up the hole in your culture.
Dm
Give me back the Berlin Wall, give me Stalin and St. Paul.
G6 E7 Am
I've seen the future, brother: it is murder.
Dm C
Things are gonna slide, (slide) in all directions,
Dm C
Won't be nothing (won't be) nothing you can't measure anymore.
Dm F
The blizzard, the blizzard of the world has crossed the threshold
Fm C
and it's overturned the order of the soul.
G
When they said (they said) Repent (repent) Repent (repent)
Am
I wonder what they meant.
G
When they said (they said) Repent (repent) Repent (repent)
Am
I wonder what they meant.
G
When they said (they said) Repent (repent) Repent (repent)
Am
I wonder what they meant.
 
You don't know me from the wind, you never will, you never did, 
I'm the little jew who wrote the bible. 
I've seen the nations rise and fall, I've heard their stories, heard them all, 
But love's the only engine of survival. 
Your servant here, he has been told to say it clear, to say it cold: 
It's over, it ain't going any further. 
And now the wheels of heaven stop, you feel the devil's riding crop, 
Get ready for the future: it is murder. 
Things are gonna slide, (slide) in all directions. 
Won't be nothing, (won't be) nothing you can measure anymore. 
The blizzard, the blizzard of the world has crossed the threshold 
And it's overturned the order of the soul. 
When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent) 
I wonder what they meant. 
When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent) 
I wonder what they meant. 
When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent) 
I wonder what they meant. 
 
There'll be the breaking of the ancient western code, 
Your private life will suddenly explode. 
There'll be phantoms, there'll be fires on the road, 
and the white man dancing. 
 
You'll see your woman hanging upside down, 
Her features covered by her fallen gown, 
And all the lousy little poets coming 'round, 
Trying to sound like Charlie Manson - and the white man dancing. 
 
Give me back the Berlin Wall, give me Stalin and St. Paul, 
Give me Christ or give me Hiroshima. 
Destroy another fetus now, we don't like children anyhow. 
I've seen the future, baby: it is murder. 
Things are gonna slide, (slide) in all directions. 
Won't be nothing, (won't be) nothing you can measure anymore. 
The blizzard, the blizzard of the world has crossed the threshold 
And it's overturned the order of the soul. 
When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent) 
I wonder what they meant. 
When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent) 
I wonder what they meant. 
When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent) 
I wonder what they meant.
