Father To Son lyrics

(one, two, three, four)

My father said "son, now my life's work is done
There's a future for you, there's a job to be done
Stop fighting the system 'cause the system won't break
Get your hair cut boy and learn from my mistakes"
Now i said to my father "father give me a break
There's a million more chances that i'm bom to take
I don't want to die like i saw you die
In a dead end job in a dead end way"

How many years must i waste in these black times
How many years must i waste

Today i can't find nothing nowhere
Tomorrow i might find something somewhere
Give me a future now
I need it so badly now
Oh for tomorrow

"these are times of recession" father said unto me
"don't you leave now my son, you'll break our family"
I said, "i've got ideas that i cannot deny
If i stay i'll be killed by the dreams on my mind."

How many years must i waste in these black times
How many years must i waste

Today i can't find nothing nowhere
Tomorrow i might find something somewhere
Give me a future now
I need it so badly now
Oh for tomorrow

I see the signs of black times everywhere i run
I can't can't escape them
No matter how hard i try
I see these signs of black time everywhere i run
I can't stand another day
I gotta move away
I gotta move away

Today i can't find nothing nowhere
Tomorrow i might find something somewhere
Give me a future now
I need it so badly now
Oh for tomorrow
Oh for tomorrow
