by the time you get this note we’ll no longer be alive

we’ll have all gone up in smoke—there’ll be no way to reply
you’ll be wondering about the world that vanished long ago
and the words that reach you now that were buried underground

greetings to everyone in 1937
it seems that you were never aware that we were here
you’re probably too busy rejoicing in the present
to stop and be reminded of the dark and troubled past

by the time you get this note we’ll no longer be alive
but our skulls are smiling still at the thought of things to come
we can confidently know that you’ll enjoy a better world
when the evils that we faced will at last be laid to rest

when the poisons of the earth are completely neutralized
when the hatred and the lies are forever put aside
when the voices of dissent and contradiction all abate
and the peaceful air is filled with a silent harmony

we can’t be certain at the moment of this writing
but surely in the future there’ll be no barking dogs
the sound of crying babies will be thankfully forgotten
no long will the chattering classes make a noise

by the time you get this note a millennium from now
we’ll have all gone up in smoke—there’ll be no way to reply
and we confidently know you’ll enjoy a better time
when the evils that we faced will at last be laid to rest

 











                           
                       
                   
               







                                       
                                   
                               
                           
                       
                   
               
           
   







They Might Be Giants' new album I Like Fun, a remarkable 15-track album, is here.


I Like Fun is as big a critical smash as it is a hit with live audiences. The scope of the album rivals any in the band's catalog—from the highly melodic to the full rockin’ to sounds that are simply unique to TMBG, I Like Fun is an album worthy of a deep dive. Recorded with their stellar live band at Reservoir Studios, this is a release not to be missed.

I Like Fun available on vinyl, LP, CD or instant download.
