i can tell a lie
that won’t change my fate
as hard as i try
the future’s been set

don’t know what’s ahead
what’s coming my way
there’s been enough said
the future’s been set

it’ll be better
it couldn’t be worse
does it matter
the future’s been set

what will be will be
nothing i can do
it’s not up to me
the future’s been set

the future’s been set

don’t expect a thing
so i’ll ride it out
i can’t change a thing
the future’s been set
