I've seen the future

A Poem by Aa Harvey

I’ve Seen The Future




I've known the truth, since the day my eyes were opened,

That this world is amazing, yet equally frightening.

Since I saw Michael Jackson, dancing on The Soul Train TV Show;

Since I saw E.T. die, because he couldn't phone home.

Since I saw Neil Armstrong, land on the moon;

Since I saw Uri Geller getting paid, to simply bend spoons.

The truth will set you free.  Your ignorance will blind you.

If you’re lost in the darkness, his light will guide you.




All my young life, I believed what I was shown,

Until my life scarred me and now I know.

This whole thing is an illusion, were just part of the plan;

But even if that’s true, I'm still a man.

Who can see such beauty, in such bitter sadness;

Who can't be happy, even when surrounded by happiness.

Experience teaches us things, we don't want to know;

But if you learn from your mistakes, you will know it's time to go.



My friend died of a heart attack,

Is there no way I can bring him back?

I want to learn immortality, so I don't end up like that;

But I don't want to live forever, for Heaven sounds quite a laugh.



It was written in a book, two thousand years ago.

The prophets spoke of things to come

And Jesus was the star of the show.

He sacrificed himself, to free us all from damnation;

But now were condemned to end the world.

There is gonna be a termination.



Einstein lead us to the bomb, that condemned all human beings;

For power leads you to be evil, there can be no happy ending.

The end of the world is nigh, they've been saying for years;

Now their words will become reality…the end is here.
