Future Call

This song is by Jill Cunniff and appears on the album City Beach (2007).

Can you hear the future call?

In this electric Babylon
We got to, got to carry on
I see you coming 'round again
But we were so much different then, back then, my friend

Daa, daa, daa, daa, daa
Don't be diggin' up the past
It wasn't meant to last, to last, to last
Daa, daa

Can you hear the future call
Valley boy, repo girl?
We're tearing down the shopping mall
Did you like the way we were?

Can you hear the future call
Wild boys and West End girls?
Read the writing on the wall
This is your modern world

The fame we chased to our disgrace
The lust we lost to win the race
Now the movies in our head
They seem so, oh, so simply dead, look ahead, my friend

Daa, daa, daa, daa, daa
Don't be diggin' up the past
It never comes again, my friend, my friend
Daa, daa

Can you hear the future call
Valley boy, repo girl?
We're tearing down the shopping mall
Did you like the way we were?

Can you hear the future call
Wild boys and West End girls?
Read the writing on the wall
This is your modern world

We have come a long, long way
We can't get back on yesterday's trail
Watch me leave the station now
The doors have closed, carry on

Can you hear the future call
Valley boy, repo girl?
We're tearing down the shopping mall
Did you like the way we were?

Can you hear the future call
Wild boys and West End girls?
Read the writing on the wall
This is your modern world
Can you hear the future call?
