Curtis Mayfield - Future Shock Lyrics




Future shock

Hey, little sister, where's your brother?
See your mother standing on the soup line
God bless your father
Ain't got the strength to be bothered

The almighty world hear me now
Whisper on to weigh him down

We got to stop all men from messing up the land
When won't we understand this is our last and only chance
Everybody, it's a future shock
Future shock, future shock
Future shock, future shock

All worldly figures playing on niggers
Oh, see them passing
See how they're dancing to the superfly
Oh, ain't it wrong when you don't know where we come from

Dancing in our youth
Dying at the truth, it ain't over
(Over, over, ain't over)

We got to stop all men from messing up the land
When won't we understand this is our last and only chance
Everybody, it's a future shock
Future shock, future shock
Future shock, future shock

The price of the beat higher than the dope in the street
Is it any wonder for those with nothing to eat

We got to stop all men from messing up the land
When won't we understand this is our last and only chance
Everybody, it's a future shock
Future shock, future shock
Future shock, future shock
