promotional notice:

we, the head-honchos over at the BMRT record label, have decided to work with mister mark in creating a special promotion for the release of this 45; mister mark is hard at work on his next album with a self-imposed twelve-track minimum, but for every person who buys this single (any time in this here month of July), that minimum will increase, and you will be guarenteed more musical when the upcoming LP "A Cyclist's Guide To North America" finally releases (in december probably)!


(i) guess we'll all go to the future place
(we) never know when we'll return
(i) guess we'll all go to the future place
take it to your heart and learn

i see so many people being themselves
.. (and) waving hello as they walk down the street
.. (se)rene; (ob)scene to some but we
know the type (know the type)

i've seen so many people holding hands
.. (ig)noring demands to bring themselves
down . (from) all (the) happy clouds and
(e)lectric skies

(oo)ooh the world is (o)orange flavoured
(i) taste it in the oxygen
(ne)evermind the rope they're pullin
(it's) all in the past for me, for me


i've seen so many people blind and confused
.. (un)happy at birds and elephants too
.. (they) dont feel all the strings pullin at
their backs

i've seen so many children go to the park
unhappy to walk, (oh) wait till you're grown
.. (you'll) see (the) brighter side if you're
searching right
