    What do the lyrics mean? I've been trying to bend my mind around them but I haven't had any luck.

    i ain't happy, i'm feeling glad
    i got sunshine, in a bag
    i'm useless, but not for long
    the future is comin' on
    i ain't happy, i'm feeling glad
    i got sunshine, in a bag
    i'm useless, but not for long
    the future is comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on

    yeah...ha ha!
    finally someone let me outta my cage
    now time for me is nothin' cuz i'm countin' no age
    now i couldn't be there, now you shouldn't be scared
    i'm good at repairs, and i'm under each snare
    intangible, bet you didn't think so i command you to
    panoramic view, look i'll make it all manageable
    pick and choose, sit and lose
    all you different crews, chicks and dudes
    who you think is really kickin' tunes?
    picture you gettin' down in a picture tube
    like you lit a fuse, you think it's fictional?
    mysical? maybe. spiritual, hearble
    what appears in you is a clearer view
    cuz you're too crazy, lifeless
    to know what the defnition of life is, priceless
    for you because i put you on the hype ****
    you like it? gunsmokin' righteous with one token
    psychic among you posess you with one go

    i ain't happy, i'm feeling glad
    i got sunshine, in a bag
    i'm useless, but not for long
    the future is comin' on
    i ain't happy
    i'm feeling glad
    i got sunshine, in a bag
    i'm useless, but not for long
    the future is comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on

    the essence the basics, without it you make it
    allow me to make this, child, like in nature
    rhythm, you have it or you don't, that's a fallacy
    i'm in them, every sprouting tree, every child apiece
    every cloud you see, you see with your eyes
    i see destrucction and demise
    corruption in disguise, from this ****in' enterprise
    now i'm sucking to your lies, through russ
    though not his muscles, but the percussion
    he provides, with me as a guide
    but y'all can see me now 'cuz you don't
    see with your eye, you perceive with your mind
    that's the inner, so i'm gonna stick with russ
    and be a mentor, with a few rhymes
    so mother****ers, remember where the thought is
    i brought all this, so you can survive
    when law is lawless, feelings, sensations
    that you thought were dead
    no squealing, now remember (that it's all in your head)

    i ain't happy, i'm feeling glad
    i got sunshine, in a bag
    i'm useless, but not for long
    the future is comin' on
    i ain't happy, i'm feeling glad
    i got sunshine, in a bag
    i'm useless, but not for long
    the future is comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    my future is comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    my future is comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    my future is comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    my future is comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    my future is comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    my future is comin' on
    it's comin' on
    it's comin' on
    my future

    In the 60s, Owsley orange SUNSHINE acid was one of the most popular/widely used forms of LSD. LSD is a hallucinogen which brings on revelations, often of a spiritual nature. The "future is coming on" could refer to the realization of something while under the influence of LSD. Also, the happy/glad thing could reflect the rapid switching of emotions which happens during an acid trip.


    And the reason the song is called Clint Eastwood is because of the strange harmonica-like instrument used in the background. The Same instrument was used in Eastwood's movie A Fistful of Dollars.


    That is all...

    based on the lyrics it looks like someone has been unhappy with their past but finally see a glimmer of hope in the future so although they aren't yet at that good place, they see that getting there is only a matter of time so they are biting their tongue and getting on with things until their time comes...


    sounds like a song i would write if i was leaving an old band to form a virtual one to be honest.

    The song is from the drug's point of view - "I'm useless, but not for long" - the drug is useless until you use it, until you let it out of its cage.
