Owl City – This Is The Future lyrics

Wake up on your own
And look around you cuz you're not alone
Release your high hopes and they'll survive
Cuz this is the future and you are alive

Dive in and swim away
From your loneliness and miserable days

And when you wake up on your own
Look around you cuz you're not alone
Let your hopes go and they'll survive
Cuz this is the future and you are alive
? Youre headed home
(? Youre headed home)

This Is The Future meanings

  • u
    To me, this song is like a reminder that everything is going to be okay. It's saying look around, you feel alone but you're not. It's saying that you have to let go of your high hopes or you'll never be happy because you'll never be able to achieve them, but if you let them go something good will come of it. It's saying leave behind your "loneliness and miserable days". And most importantly, it's saying wake up, stop living in the past, this is the future, and you are alive.
