​In the Year 2525

This song is by Ian Brown and appears on the album My Way (2009).

In the year 2525 if man is still alive
If woman can survive they may find

In the year 3535 ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
Everything you think, do or say is in the pill you took today
In the year 4545 ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes
You won't find a thing to do, nobody's gonna look at you
In the year 5555 your arms are hanging limp at your sides
Your legs not nothing to do, some machine is doing that for you
In the year 6565 ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife
You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too from the bottom of a long black tube
In the year 7510 if God's a-coming he ought to make it by then
Maybe he'll look around himself and say, guess it's time for the Judgement day
In the year 8510 God's gonna shake his mighty head
He'll either say I'm pleased where man has been or tear it down and start again
In the year 9595 I'm kinda wondering if man's gonna be alive
He's taken everything this old earth can give and he ain't put back nothing

Now it's been 10,000 years, man has cried a billion tears
For what he never knew, now man's reign is through
But through the eternal night the twinkling of starlight
So very far away, maybe it's only yesterday
