Tomorrow

they’ll wipe that smile
off your face
they won’t even tell you why
take your time
take your place
it’s already passed you by

too much too soon
too little to lose
it’s late
too late

they’ll squeeze you in
on the sly
and push ‘till you’re too far gone
they’ll cut you off at the knees
rip the wings off the fly
and tell you whose side you’re on

too much too soon
too little to lose
it’s late
too late

tomorrow is a fade away
tomorrow - shades of grey
tomorrow is here to stay
but it looks like yesterday

you can’t do it like this
you won’t make it like that
but there’s never an in-between
there’s no view from the ground
the world has gone flat
sucked into the TV screen

too much too soon
too little to lose
it’s late
too late

tomorrow is a fade away
tomorrow - shades of grey
tomorrow is here to stay
but it looks like yesterday

take your eyes off the wheel
the hands off the clock
and backdate the calendar
bounce your thoughts off the wall
draw the chain in the lock
become part of the furniture

too much too soon
too little to lose
too much too soon
too little to lose
tomorrow
tomorrow
tomorrow
tomorrow

it's late
too late
