Testo The Future – Leonard Cohen

Testo della canzone The Future di Leonard Cohen
Album: Future
Give me back my broken night my mirrored room,
my secret life it’s lonely here,
there’s no one left to torture
Give me absolute control over every living soul
And lie beside me, baby, that’s an order!
Give me crack and anal sex
Take the only tree that’s left and stuff it up
the hole in your culture
Give me back the Berlin wall give me Stalin and St Paul
I’ve seen the future, brother: it is murder.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won’t be nothing Nothing you can measure anymore
The blizzard, the blizzard of the world has crossed
the threshold and it has overturned the order of the soul
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant …
and the white man dancin’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
