The OFFICIAL video clip for "The Future", single from the 1992 album of the same name. -- INTENTIONALLY BLEEPED --


IMPORTANT NOTE: There's an INTENTIONAL "censorship" of words "crack" and "anal sex" to further underline the song's message. This was made probably by Cohen himself, and in any case, it's present in the ORIGINAL video clip - my copy comes from the official The Future press kit.

Cohen himself sings "careless sex" instead of "anal sex" - in 1993 tour, honn the concerts which were broadcast, and in 2008-2010 tour constantly on every single show.

NOTE: The video follows *radio edit* version. The single version was shortened from 06:41 to 04:53, shortening chorus (REPENT lines), omitting the verse starting with line "Your servant here", and in the end, by omitting the repeated first verse and shortened chorus (you can clearly hear the cut before the last chorus, at 04:01).

Note, April 12, 2012
I was forced to close the comments option as people didn't read the description and I have received to much hate emails about my censorship. I even was acused of omitting the missing lines from the album version...
