Description
Here's another tune that is part of my "Future Man" concept that I'm doing for Feb Album Writing Month (http://fawm.org) this year. You can check out the first tune for this concept at http://www.macjams.com/song/50223. Basically, it's about a time traveler who, as a side effect of time travel, loses some of his memory and must wait for it to return. I thought that having a concept might help me plow through songs at a record pace... but that doesn't seem to be the case. In fact, I think it is slowing me down! I'll be happy to finish 10 tunes at this rate...

The first tune for this was a bit groovy... this one however kinda comes off as a disjointed mess. But it's MY mess!!!

Lyrics
The future man was still sleep deprived
When the camera crews and the press arrived

They all wanted to know really how it could be
That he traveled through time and then conveniently
His mind was a blank when it came to proof of his conjecture

Don't write the writing on the wall
Give me a chance to prove it all
Prepare for tidal waves
And a massive earth quake in two days
it says it right here in black and white
in an article you have yet to write
it says thousands have died and they will no doubt
unless you believe and help them out

Now the heads of state didn't know how to plan
Should they mobilize thousands because of one man?
but what if by chance the prediction was true

As the moment neared
All the skeptics cheered
When it seemed there was nothing to be feared

But then just as was foretold
The ground shook uncontrolled
And leaving nothing to surprise
The tidal waves reached for the skies

But no one was home to devastate
They had all been forewarned to evacuate
And the futureman proved his story was true
But was that what he came to do?
