Dan Bern - Take Back the New Millenium

Song Lyrics

I remember back in '99
How excited I was by the concept of time
Great big numbers about to turn
And the hopes that I had, and the baggage we could burn

It was all gonna be smooth and easy and slow
Drifting in a daydream, or just up and go
Cover everything with fresh paint, poetry and song
Wind chimes and candles and wine

Oo-oo-oo, Oo-oo-oo
Time to take back the new millenium
This one was gonna be ours
Take back the new millenium
Oo-oo-oo

No oil family power
Making your enemies cower
Planes smashing into towers
Gonna keep us from the world we deserve

Take back, take back
Take back the new millenium

Lately in my sleep I've been trying to scream
This is not my vision, this is not my dream
I ain't being heard, ain't being understood
And I can't find my way to the three acre wood

But just lately, I've got to say this
I feel like things are turning
Like a cool country kiss
I see signs in the small things
Even though you can't always win
But like Kennedy said, "Let us begin"

So no I don't think it's too late
To turn it around
No I don't think it's too late
To throw the bums out of town
I've got all my senses, I'm walking around
I've got all my senses, I'm walking around

Time to take back the new millenium
This one was gonna be ours

No oil family power
Making your enemies cower
Planes smashing into towers
Gonna keep us from the world we deserve

Take back, take back
Take back the new millenium
