...I See the Future Faded...

...And so I turned to see Miss Liberty

But the copper was so rusted,

it looked like there were freckles

on her nose...

Then I turned to see an angel

flying through the sky,

And it looked like he was Black,

or I suppose...

Yes, his wings shone like a shield,

and yet he seemed too real...

And, yes there was a rumor of a war...

I was looking through the past,

just to find my future,

And the picture was as perfect

as a dream...

But, this is just my fantasy

of what is yet o be...

I was trying to find the best

there was in Man.

But, then the vision faded,

or was it just my mind so jaded

that the vision fled as soon

as I awoke.

Well, the man he spoke in pictures,

and still he shouted loud...

But no one there could hear

what he has said..

So, when the truth comes a callin'

it's going to be so sad...

'Cause we miss it cause we

just don't know the words...

For I see the future faded,

Parading through my dreams...

For the days of tomorrow

now are done.

Yes I hear the soldiers coming,

their voices calling through

the clouds...

They have come to fight

the last war for the Son...
