Yeasayer – 2080

I can’t sleep when I think about the times we’re living in
I can’t sleep when I think about the future I was born into
Outsiders dressed up like Sunday morning
With no Berlin wall what the hell you gonna do..

It’s a New Year
I’m glad to be here
It’s a fresh spring
So let’s sing.

In 2080
I’ll surely be dead
So don’t look ahead
Never look ahead

It’s a New Year
I’m glad to be here
It’s the first spring
So let’s sing

And the moon shines bright
On the water tonight
So we won’t drown
In the summer sound..

If you find me I’ll be sitting by the water fountain
Picket signs, letdowns, meltdown it’s Monday morning
But it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright
It’s alright..
Cause in no time, they’ll be gone I guess I’ll still be standing here…

Yeah yeah we can all grab at the chance and be handsome farmers
Yeah you can have twenty one sons and be blood when they marry my daughters
And the pain that we left at the station will stay in a jar behind us
We can pickle the pain into blue ribbon winners at county contests..
