In the year 3535

Ain't gonna need

to tell the truth, tell no lies

Everything you think, do and say

Is in the pill you took today

In the year 4545

Ain't gonna need your teeth,

won't need your eyes

You won't find a thing to chew

Nobody's gonna look at you

In the year 5555

Your arms are hanging

limp at your sides

Your legs got nothing to do

Some machine's doing that for you

In the year 6565

Ain't gonna need no husband,

won't need no wife

You'll pick your son,

pick your daughter, too

From the bottom

of a long glass tube, whoa-oh

In the year 7510

If God's a-coming

He ought to make it by then

Maybe he'll look around himself and say

Guess it's time for the Judgment Day

In the year 8510

God is gonna shake his mighty head

He'll either say,

'"I'm pleased where man has been '"

Or tear it down and start again, whoa-oh

In the year 9595

I'm kind of wondering

if man is gonna be alive

He's taken everything

this old Earth can give

And he ain't put back nothing, whoa-oh

Now it's been 10,000 years

Man has cried a billion tears

For what he never knew

Now man's reign is through


What are you doing? We're going to be late.

- Are you excited?

- Yeah.

And guess what?

I heated up the hot water bottle

so you can sit on it while we drive.

In the year 2525

If man is still alive

If woman can survive

they may find

Benjy, I'm so glad you signed up for this.

I think this is gonna be

a really neat opportunity for you.

- Hey. You Benjamin?

- Yeah.

I'm Mr. Keefe,

the homeschool co-op advisor this year,

but you can call me Todd,

or some people just like to call me Keefe.

I think you're really gonna enjoy

the Cletus Festival this year.

It's the best writers' camp in the state.

Keefe, can you tell me how much money

he's gonna need for two days?

You think 4 bucks would be enough?

- Uh... I'd say more like 40, maybe

- Really?

Well, we better hit the road.

Got a big day tomorrow.

Be safe.

Hey, Benjy.

Remember who you are

and what you stand for.

I love you forever and ever.

Good morning, homeschoolers

Is everybody excited

for Cletus Fest or what?


We will be stopping for lunch

at the Kozy Cafe in Echo

Some of you can afford to eat there,

but those who can't will just eat

the food they brought from home

Are there any questions?

Whether you like it or not,

when you get overseas,

- especially to Europe, I think...

- Right.

- It's different.

- It's totally different.

And you're completely infused

with another energy,

whether you open yourself up to it or not.

- So, I found it really, really inspiring.

- Hey, Benjamin.

Come here, I want you to meet someone.


I'd like you to meet Tabatha Jenkins.

She's new to the co-op as well. Kind of.

She spent all last year as

a foreign exchange student out in Europe.

Cool. Where did you go?


Benjamin is from Saltair,

and he likes to write sci-fi stories.

Keefe is so dang awesome.

Yeah, he seems pretty cool.

I write French mysteries, you know.

How long you been doing that?

Mainly the last six months.

I write about a stable hand named Pierre.

Can I borrow some money

to buy some tampons?

All my cash is still in euros and I haven't

had time to change it over yet.

What? Yeah, sure.

Thanks. I owe you big time.

Don't worry about it.

Sorry, they didn't have any, so I just

bought some treats for me and Lonnie.

Hey, can we come sit by you?

Hey, Lonnie, bring our stuff.

Let's sit over here.

Benjamin, this is Lonnie Donaho.

- Hi.

- Hi. Nice to meet you.

He has his own video production company,

Donaho Studios.
