I know all of my exits
I'm always plannin' my escape
It's the most aggressive symptom
Of this collective phantom pain
And the more that you ignore it
The more it makes you go insane
Just look around

It's the battle of the passwords
It's the trumpets on the hill
It's that constant paranoia
It's that final fire drill
And if you won't sing the anthem
They'll go find someone else who will
They're crackin' down

We're livin' in the future
So shine a little light
It may not make it any better
I'm just hopin' that it might

I'm not talkin' 'bout forever
How 'bout just gettin' through the night?
We're livin' in the future
So shine a little light

I'm always lookin' over shoulders
Not knowin' what I'm lookin' for
Now that the feelin' someone's watchin'
Isn't just a feeling anymore
Now that both sides of the aisle
Are this good at keepin' score
We've crossed a line

There's a madness to the method
There's a market for the fear
It's that dance out on the razor's edge
A wolf held by the ears
It's the man behind the curtain
It's the way of all frontiers
Since the dawn of time

We're livin' in the future
So shine a little light
It may not make it any better
I'm just hopin' that it might

I'm not talkin' 'bout forever
How 'bout just gettin' through the night?
We're livin' in the future
So shine a little light

We're livin' in the future
So shine a little light
It may not make it any better
I'm just hopin' that it might

I'm not talkin' 'bout forever
How 'bout just gettin' through the night?
We're livin' in the future
So shine a little light
