Story behind the song
"Folks: It's time to evolve ideas. You know, evolution didn't end with us growing thumbs. You do know that, right? Didn't end there. We're at the point, now, where we're going to have to evolve ideas. The reason the world is so f#cked up is we're undergoing evolution. And the reason our institutions, our traditional religions, are all crumbling, is because … they're no longer relevant. They're no longer RELEVANT. So it's time for us to create a neeew philosophy and perhaps even a new religion, you seeee. And that's okaay... 'cause that's our right, 'cause we are Free Children of God with minds who can imagine anything, and that's :-P *kind of our role*." - Bill Hicks (1961–1994 r.i.p.) Bill didn't inspire this song, but his rant above is definitely in the same conceptual area.
Lyrics
Sooner or Later James Hollingsworth © 07/09/2003 When you look around the World It's hard to imagine how things are gonna get better Without feeling like an idealistic fool Who's gone and traded dreams For what's right before his eyes Who sooner or later, has got to get Wise And the troubles that we face That time and time again come back to haunt us With the feeling that we've all been here before And we've gone and fallen for The same old themes and lies But sooner or later, we're gonna get Wise Look again at all the questions That we answered in whatever way we could Without being in possession of the facts Settling for Chimeras Blockages that won't let truth arise But sooner or later, we're gonna get Wise Take a look into the Future Perhaps you will already have been there Without wordplay taken too far, I will say We could be reaching for the stars 'cause surely we could make it if we tried But sooner or later, we're gonna get Wise When you look around the World It's hard to imagine how things are gonna get better
