Here I am in 2020 By: Mike Mezz
Here I am in the year 2020 It's not as cool as I thought it would be No humans on the moon, nobody on Mars Where the hell is my flying car?
It's hard times in this millenium Getting by on just the bare minimum Everything to lose and nothing to spare Everything seems to be going straight to hell
Some say we're in the Age of Aquarius We lived through the Mayan Apocalypse A pie in the sky from sea to shining sea A crazy American utopian dream
If you believe the lies that are plenty You're more optimistic than me We're living in the year 2020 It's not how the Maharishi said it would be
Lights out in the heart of America No love in a time of hysteria It's head for the hills, every man for himself Nobody helping out anyone else
Pray for guidance, beg for forgiveness Vote for change and hope they'll listen The only thing I know for sure is this It's a time that history won't forget
The world can be anything we want it to be Hope for love and pray for peace Fighting through a deadly pandemic Wear a mask and fight for King's dream
Out in the streets, downtown in the park The future's just waiting on you and me When there's a fire, there's a spark Let's show the planet how life should be
Try hard to for a peaceful world today Keep working to change minds and hearts Don't be afraid to go outside and play This year has been a doozy so far
By the way, where the hell is my jetpack? I was promised one back in school We should be flying here and back With no more gasoline engines or fossil fuels
Here I am in the year 2020 It's not as cool as I thought it would be No man on the moon, nobody on Mars And I'm still waiting on my flying car
Maybe next year?
