This is a song I wrote after reading saintmaker's piece "Welcome to the Future". I added sci-fi sounds and beats from other sources that are cited. Last minute I also added "Open Your Ears (VO 1)" by thegoddamnparticle because I felt it fit the mood of the song and the track just seemed to beg for some spoken word at the end.
Here are the lyrics I wrote for the song:
I went to bed weary, heart ready to still Life's burned out the sun, I was ready to be done In my sleep the past and present were villages turned to dust A door stood bright before me, opening with new promises
Welcome to the future Welcome to the future Do you really want to know?
The source of my dreams keep me from dying Each crumb another taste, another step I turn my head without even trying If that hill comes on to quick, I'll fall back, I will slip down
Welcome to the future Welcome to the future Do you really want to know? I don't really want to know?
I have too much hope and too much bet on tomorrow Thoughts of every possible color fill me with desire I have practiced far too long for far too many reasons If I skip all the tunnels how will I recognize the light?
Welcome to the future Welcome to the future Welcome to the future....
