You walked up to me
and said
I'm your future
If you're my future.,
I don't want to go., Joe.
Does  anyone want to know their future?
It could be kind
it could be scary.
It could be a bloody suicide.
I don't think you're my future
If you're my future,
I say, an emphatic no.
Don't confuse your muddy past 
with my golden future.
If I were to become you in 2032
My eyes would be crossed
my mind would be blown and my words
would come out backwards too...
Still I wonder what convinced you
you were my future
Do you believe a myth is true.
Step into my world
do the magic  that I do.
you're feet would be on fire,
trying to wear my dancin'
thank you all the same.
Your colors don't have
the method or the muscle to
buy into my game
Put away your wing clippers
and find some other
song bird to 
win a place in your show..
