Track Name: yesterday was
yesterday was the first day I saw you
for who you really are, for who you've always been
and I cant say that I'm all that surprised
terrified you sat and shook while the world swallowed you whole
yesterday I saw the sky open
and as the floors of heaven gave out, I saw a thousand glowing souls
they didn't say anything they just waited
so I opened up my mouth and asked for them to answer me
what is the colour of blindness
and just how far do you have to fall before you don't feel like falling anymore

yesterday I was married to a holy ghost
yesterday she sang to me till i fell asleep
yesterday I held every inch of the universe in my hand
but I gave it all away, and now I cant remember why
yesterday everything seemed so easy and simple
and meaningless and sad
it was beautiful and bright
yesterday was a different world than it's been today
the sun has already gone down and I'm waiting in the parking lot
musing about the joy and ignorance of a former world
I'm not quite sure if I'm waiting for another day like yesterday
Track Name: today is
today's another day, it's just like any other day
the sun is boiling hot and the sky is a blinding grey
and I woke up this morning, just like every other morning
for the past five years, god knows i still feel the sam

convince myself to hold on to something
just hold on to something
wrap your hands around anything you can find
pretty soon you will be nothing at all

today I fell into a bottomless well
today I fell asleep in hell
it was an afternoon nap I wont soon forget
today my bloody finger tips were excommunicated by gods lips
my hands they are unholy, oh my god they are unholy

so just hold on to something
just hold on to something
wrap your hands around anything you can find
pretty soon I will be nothing at all

there is a brooding blackened skyline over the city we call hell
watch the borders keep expanding as they are filling up their cells
and the man holding the shotgun for when the sinners try to run
says "give me blood, give me blood, give me blood"

so just hold on to something
just hold on to something
wrap your hands around your own neck if you can swing it
pretty soon I will be nothing at all
oh my god, I've become nothing at all
Track Name: tomorrow will be
tomorrow will be the greatest day I've ever lived
so long as tomorrow stays a day away
tomorrow will be a beautiful blue painting
that I will hang in the house I've not yet dreamt of

tomorrow will be thursday

tomorrow I'll be falling out of aeroplanes
and hopping on north bound trains to canada
tomorrow I'll be shooting holes in the atmosphere
with my body and I will suffocate in space

and I will become the first bleeding satellite
and there will be no applause, no one will stand in awe
as I become the one and only anything

tomorrow I will find myself completely lost
tomorrow I will keep on walking anyway
tomorrow i'll forget the words to every song I've written
and sing what I've been meaning to say
and everyone will sing along just like they do in my dreams
and we won't stop until we've had our fill
there will be blood in our throats
my hands will play until they're broke
every line like hallowed sound propagation

and there will come a silence
a deafening unsettling sweet silence
and it will wash away with everything
wash away along with everything
because tomorrow is the rest of my life
at some point tomorrow will be the day that I die

tomorrow will be the greatest day I've ever lived
so long as tomorrow stays a day away
