Lyrics copied from http://www.richiehavens.com/lyrics-tahitf.html


THERE'S A HOLE IN THE FUTURE
Words by Richie Havens

Like the smoke that rises to the ceiling, Mona.
I keep seeing the things I seen yesterday.
Yet the wheels keep turning. They keep turning, Mona.
Things I am seeing, I just can't say.

Like the sun that rises, I keep trying, Mona,
To let everyone know that I won't give up.
Yes, the water is dripping. Can't you taste it, Mona?
Lift up your head from that bitter cup.

Oh, Mona, don't close the door.
The fireman's coming and he's bringing more.
Oh, Mona, the gardener's here.
He's got loads of dirt. He can plant your hurt.
Oh, Mona, the water is on.
The water is a-boiling and it won't be long,
Won't be long, won't be long, won't be long.

Like the hole that's waiting in the future, Mona,
It could already be filled when we get there.
There's a hole that's waiting in the future, Mona.
It could already be filled when we get there.
It could already be filled when we get there.
It could already be filled when we get there.

There's a hole in the future, dear Liza, dear Liza...

Then fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry...

With what shall I fix it, dear Liza...

With time, dear Henry...

...and so on ad infinitum.
