Got so weary of bein′ nothin', Felt so dreary just doin′ nothin' Didn't care ever gettin′ nothin′, felt so low
Now my eyes on the far horizon can see a glow Announcin' things ain′t what they used to be. No use bein' a doubtin′ Thomas, No ignorin' that rosy promise; Now I know there′s a happy story yet to come. It's the dawn of a day of glory: millennium I tell you things ain't what they used to be.
