First released as a demo contribution on the No Division EP, but later re-recorded for the debut album The Optimist LP and by now one of the live classics.

So future boy, where are you from
my time machine crashed over yonder
Syphillis is a bitch but contracting HIV is much worse.
Why are you pushing info into me,
I have no need for it, I’m from the stars.

I thought you’d like to know the scoop
I’m taking babies back with me, yeah.
I’m taking them back home
so they can see there’s a much better place.

I’ve got a sister with an open mind
and my friends are all junkies
But they’re still my friends, as long as they don’t use monkeys,
We enjoy the heat of stolen days in the summer of ’93.

Well the future boy said “I’ve got friends
but you know sometimes it all depends
on how tall they are
against yourself.”

I am the future boy
I am the future boy
I am the future boy

My friends have all gone and left me
so I decided to come here and see myself as a baby,
but it looks like I’m stuck here this time, oh shit,
I’m gonna miss my friends.

No you’re still the future boy,
Yes I’m still the future boy
We’ll build you a time machine to get back home.
Still the future boy
Still the future boy
Still the future boy
Well I’m still the future boy
