In the year 2525

Purchase yourself an airline flight ticket for the mind in a flight you may never want to take ever again. A turbulence far worst than physical fear, but somewhat a creepy ride of life that often questions you and your seed of future family generations in the lives they will live in. Be under standby mode with those herbs for possible full effect and while the time pressed in pause, have a listen to the song ‘In The Year 2525’ by Zager & Evans :

Have a listen to that while reading the lyrics to it, a possible chill traveling down your spine may occur.

In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
they may find…

In the year 3535
Ain’t gonna need to tell the truth tell no lies
Everything you think do and say
Is in the pill you took today

In the year 4545
Ain’t gonna need your teeth won’t need your eyes
You won’t find a thing to chew
Nobody’s gonna look at you

In the year 5555
Your arms are hanging limp at your sides
Your legs got nothing to do
Some machines doing that for you

In the year 6565
Ain’t gonna need no husband won’t need no wife
You’ll pick your son, pick your daughter too
From the bottom of a long glass tube

In the year 7510
If God’s a-comin’ he ought to make it by then
Maybe he’ll look around himself and say
“Guess it’s time for the Judgement Day”

In the year 8510
God is gonna shake his mighty head
He’ll either say “I’m pleased where man has been”
Or tear it down and start again

In the year 9595
I’m kinda wondering if man is gonna be alive
He’s taken everything this old earth can give
And he ain’t put back nothing

Now it’s been 10,000 years
Man has cried a billion tears
For what he never knew
Now man’s reign is through

But through the eternal night
The twinkling of starlight
So very far away
Maybe it’s only yesterday…

*Repeat verse of 2525 and 3535

Frightening world ain’t it? Simple poetry taste of the early 70’s of the hippie days reminds us today of what we may not ever foresee it coming. Safe to say technology has brushed our human morales aside, or perhaps wrapped a blindfold on us and assures us, it is pretty comfortable wearing it.
