    This song means something to me because I am the one who wrote it and sang lead on the RCA release, 1969. What I wanted to say is exactly what I wrote: beware of technology and use it well lest it runs out of control and dehumanizes all of us.
    Legal: "In the Year 2525 (Exordium & Terminus)" was written exclusively, lyrics & music, by Richard (Rick) S. Evans.

    This song was written during the height of the tune in and tune out drug times and of course when free uncommitted love was the way of life. This song reflected the growing concern also of pills being made for every facet of our lives. Also, the concern for the environment which was rarely talked about the politicians. This song played at high volume really rocked. It was played at Hugh Hefners playboy mansion in Chicago as a big crowd favorite.

    I personally love the part where they say that man has taken all this old earth can give and they ain't put back nothing. It's true, we treat the earth like our personal trash can and expect to be around forever? Not gonna happen people. The other part I love is the ending. Because you can begin to change the world before it ends up like it does in the song. Now this might not be correct, but this is my personal opinion.

    Profecy? I think it is coming long before then. We have your prozac, done all of these things, test tube babies, dna, and I don't think we will have to wait until 2525. I think god is already tearing the world down or allowing us to do it and will make his judgement on each and every one of us loongg before 2525! Just my opinion. My advise, tho unasked, is make yourself right in the eyes of our lord jesus christ! Amen this last sentence I know in my heart is true! Think about it now. What have you got to lose. An eternity in heaven or hell or if you think it just ends after this body dies. You have nothing to lose by saying and believing in your heart that jesus christ is your savior, do you?

    The song's lyrics although written in the sixties or so (?), hence such a long time ago, was able to predict so many things. One think I predicted too, some 20 years ago is that marriage will disappear from the face of the earth and today you see less and less marriage that last and less and less people who get married due to equal rights.
    The children will grow without parents, without a guide or direction in life, without any affection. They will grow like a weeds on the side of the road. Time to shake the world.
