"Then The Morning Comes" as written by and Gregory D./barry Camp....
Paint the town take a bow
Thank every body you're gonna do it again
You are the few the proud
You are the antibody mind soul and Zen

And the world's a stage
And the world's a faze and the end is near
So push rewind just in time
Thank anybody you're gonna do it again

[Chorus]
The way that you walk
It's just the way that you talk like it ain't no thing
And every single day is just a fling
Then the morning comes

Take your knocks shake them off
Duck everybody you're gonna take them again
You are your foe, your friend
You are the paparazzi

You are the tragedian
And the world's a craze
And the world's a faze and the end is near
So push rewind just in time

Thank anybody you're gonna do it again

[Chorus]

And when it comes it moves so slow
Kind of like it's saying "I told you so"
Looking back before she goes
Tomorrow's gonna hurt

And the world's a stage
And the world's a faze and the end is near
So push rewind just in time
Thank anybody

[Chorus]

    General Commentthe trademarked smashmouth sound combined with some poignant lyrics make this song for me.

    seemingly, the song tells the tale of a nice guy who's trying to pass off his string of failures, especially with the girl ("looking back before she goes") in his life.

    everybody, to a certain extent, tries to take their knocks and shake them off. unless you're one of those people that drowns in self-pity and milks every semi-tragedy for all its worth, then you're gonna end doing your best to stay calm and collected about things. but underneath you're the tragedian, the actor in a tragic situation.

    best part of the song, musically and lyrically-"when it comes it moves so slow...tomorrow's gonna hurt". for all of us who have been there, you know that tomorrow isn't gonna be pleasant. and voila, then the morning comes and you have to deal with it.

    General CommentI actually really like this song, especially:

    "And when it comes it moves so slow
    Kinda like it's saying I told you so
    Looking back before she goes
    Tomorrow's gonna hurt"

    General CommentHahah.. This song reminds me of a friend of mine. The world may seem like it's working out for him for a while.. but it's just like the bridge.

    "And when it comes it moves so slow
    Kinda like it's saying I told you so
    Looking back before she goes
    Tomorrow's gonna hurt"

    He eventually realizes, Oh, shit, this is the worst possible thing I could do, but he always sees it when it's either too late or about to be in the next five seconds. All these girls look back before they leave him, thinking everything is alright, but he's so incredibly riddled with problems.

    And he's always so depressed; indeed the actor in a tragedy. Shaking off your problems until the last minute? Yep... that's him. Probably another reason why I love this song so much..
