Future Tense

This song is by April Wine and appears on the album The Nature Of The Beast (1981).

Each moment's just a reflex
Response is just emotion
The pressure never ends, baby
I hope it don't drive me crazy
I don't wanna be a poor boy
It don't help to say gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme
I ain't foolin' myself now
All I know is what I feel

I know I don't like it
You can't disagree
Come on, say it'll be all right
I say yeah, yeah, yeah

Future tense, gone too far
Future tense, a world apart
Future tense, more than a feeling in my heart
Oh, yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh, yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I feel a little unbalanced
Between the pros and the con-men
I try for satisfaction
You always let it slide
Every day is like the last day
Whatever happened to 50, 50, 50, 50
I don't have a solution
All I know is what I feel, baby

I heard about the good life
I'd like to give it a try
They say it's gonna be all right
I said yeah, yeah, yeah

Future tense, is what I feel
Future tense, is what I see
Future tense, as much for you as it is for me
Oh, yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh, yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah)

If you don't like somebody
Say "Leave me alone!"
It's just like a bad time
You have to make good on your own

(Guitar Solos: Brian Greenway, Gary Moffat and Myles Goodwyn)

We're racing through time now
It's all hit and run
You say it's gonna be all right
I say yeah, yeah, yeah

Future tense, we've gone too far
Future tense, a world apart
Future tense, more than a feelin' in my heart
Oh, no, (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh, no, (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh, no, (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh, no, (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh, no, (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh, no, (yeah, yeah, yeah)
No (yeah), no (yeah), no (yeah), oh, no!
