    "Soylent green is made of pe-e-e-opl-l-le."

    In The Year 2525 (Exordium & Terminus)

    Written and Sung by: Denny Zager and Rick Evans

    In the year 2525
    If man is still alive
    If woman can survive
    They may find...

    In the year 3535
    Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
    Everything you think, do, or say
    Is in the pill you took today

    In the year 4545
    Ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes
    You won't find a thing to chew
    Nobody's gonna look at you

    In the year 5555
    Your arms are hanging limp at your sides
    Your legs got nothing to do
    Some machine, doing that for you

    In the year 6565
    Ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife
    You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too
    From the bottom of a long glass tube

    In the year 7510
    If God's a comin' he ought to make it by then
    Maybe he'll look around himself and say
    "Guess it's time for the Judgement day''

    In the year 8510
    God's gonna shake his mighty head
    He'll either say ``I'm pleased where man has been''
    Or tear it down and start again

    In the year 9595
    I'm kinda wondering if man's gonna be alive
    He's taken everything this old earth can give
    And he ain't put back nothing...

    Now it's been 10,000 years
    Man has cried a billion tears
    For what he never knew
    Now man's reign is through
    But through the eternal night
    The twinkling of starlight
    So very far away
    Maybe it's only yesterday...

    In the year 2525
    If man is still alive
    If woman can survive
    They may find...

    It's the year 2022. People are still the same. They'll do anything to get what they need and they need SOYLENT GREEN.

    When I thought the truth was truth I thought songs like The Year 2525 and movies like Soylent Green were entertaining but not a possibility. Now I realize that the world could become a science fiction kind of scenario.

    I don't know anymore what our fate is. I guess there is a strange comfort in accepting that perhaps the truth is not ours to know in this life.
