lyrics

Welcome to the future
Most things are the same
But we're all now gluten free
People live in space
We've cured every disease
Oh and Mika is massive again


Scotland finally left
Then came back again, then left again
The bees all disappeared
But the bees came back as well
Stronger, angrier, stingier
So we had to give them Scotland


We couldn't call it the UK anymore
When Wales sank into the sea,
and so for sponsorship reasons
we're now the United Kingdom of Amazon Prime.


Cars now drive themselves.
But they also drive each other
In a sort of carpool system.
Often there is a 'designated driver'
so the other cars can just loosen up and live a little.
We've run out of dill.


Welcome to the future
Everything's now privatised.
The sky and it's contents
Are the property of Sky.
With the exception of the moon
Which obviously still belongs to Rymans.


Welcome to the future
We don't have flying cars
But poverty and inequality are spiralling
Towards a ghettoised police state
Because of the unstoppable progression of the neoliberal rightwing agenda
But it's fine for me, I'm rich
