I couldn’t put it better myself

From Roy Harper’s The Dream Society’

Can’t you see the future in drugs for everybody
Can’t you see the future in our hands
Spliffs at 15p down at the 7 to 11
Make your choice from 20 different brands
Smoking shit
Talking it
Can’t you see the future in our hands

The future
Well she’ll be right on by
En route to the never ever lands
Back on the gondolas
With the broken rock-n-rollers
Dreaming of some future in their hands

Can’t you see the future in drugs for everybody
Don’t you want to live the fairy tale
Happiness available on tap over the counter
Life and death and skunk all in the mail
With Hillary
Ancillary
To make sure Bill remembers to inhale

The future
Well she’ll be right on by
En route to the never ever lands
Back on the gondolas
With the broken rock-n-rollers
Dreaming of some future in their hands

Can’t you see the future in drugs for everybody
Helping us escape the aches and pains
The future is a planet I imagine I inhabit
On board the cocktail flowing through my veins
Reality
Is not for me
I’d sooner be completely out my brains

Can’t you see the future in drugs for everybody
We could all be hundreds of years old
Grafted onto blue baboons and propagated monkeys
With valium
Up the bum
Can’t you see the pharmacy unfold

And the great Pharmacist
Well he’ll be right on by
En route to the never ever lands
Riding the gondolas
With the broken rock-n-rollers
The future permanently put on hold
As usual everybody put on hold
We could put the universe on hold
Let’s go put the universe on hold
