Inside black decision concealing what no one knows but I
To regain the vision that my freewill once cast aside
Tomorrow Turned Into Yesterday
The sweet downhill sadness of our slow decay

Tomorrow Turned Into Yesterday
And I see the fault of the steps that I mislaid

Tonight the north wind spoke to the trees
And said, "Open your eyes"
Deep silver glimmer slither, drip down
And emoition dies, emotion dies

Tomorrow Turned Into Yesterday
And I see the fault in a chance that never was taken

Tomorrow turned, tomorrow's gone
But did we learn, where we went oh so wrong

Tomorrow Turned Into Yesterday
Tomorrow Turned Into Yesterday

Tomorrow turned, tomorrow's gone
But did we learn, where we went oh so wrong
Oh so wrong

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who never took a chance in life and let people push him around. He never "opened his eyes" and thus just lived a boring life, a cog in a cold, lifeless machine. All his dreams just died out and he's living such a routine life that tomorrow just feels like yesterday.

    General CommentIt's deeper than that, and plus this song is speaking to more than one person. I think it's about a wasted vision, apathy in a large sense. The writer sees this wasted chance at pursuing this vision (or truth) but at the same time wonders if anybody even knows where this missed opportunity has taken humanity.

    General CommentBleh, I change my mind. I get the feeling that this song references the material on Dreaming Neon Black. I think this is about Warrel's girlfriend.

    General CommentWhenever I listen to this song, I feel like it's about social progress being sacrificed in the name of religion. It's tragic, really.

    General CommentIn an interview, jeff said that this song is about regretful for things you did.
    He said: it's something like when you sleep with someone else (that isn't your wife), and on the next day you feel guilty. But you can't change what is done anymore.
