lyrics

We sure done did it now,
The future’s here.
We’re sprouting wires now,
And the path is clear.
Our bodies obsolete now,
Like the human race.
We’re endless numbers now
In endless space.
A brand new interface!
A brand new human race!
A whole new sense of place!
A whole new goddamn human race!

Welcome to the future kid,
You never stood a chance.
Welcome to the future kid.

They got a pill to save your soul, now ain’t that sweet?
They wrote a code to fill that hole in your heart!
They got a war to save the world, come and pull up a seat!
They got a plan for you, you’ll see, this is just the start!

There’s no time to feel let down, the future’s here.

They’re packing slaves away in distant factories and prisons,
to make machines to do the things we thought gave our lives meaning.
Our dreams (as obsolete and distant as the world that dreamed them) can’t slow us down, ain’t we proud, science is the new religion!
A brand new interface!
A brand new human race!
A whole new sense of place!
A whole new goddamn human race!

They got a pill to save your soul, now ain’t that sweet?
They wrote a code to fill that hole in your heart!
They got a war to save the world, come and pull up a seat!
They got a plan for you, you’ll see, this is just the start!
They know you’re fucked up and alone and they got a cure!
They know exactly what you need, gonna sell it to you!
They know I’m fucked up and alone and they got a cure!
They know exactly what I need, gonna sell it to me!

There's no time to feel let down, the future's here.

Slow Teeth is an anarcha-herbalist quintet from Portland Oregon formed in January, 2009. We play vocally oriented, often choral, usually apocalyptic punky folk music with shades of goth-western, vaudevillian and string band arrangements. Each member plays multiple instruments and writes songs, taking it in turn to sing lead and switching instruments between songs. ... more
