"Tomorrow" as written by and Justin Furstenfeld....
Tomorrow
I'm gonna find a way to die
I'm living only for a lover
And the death of you and I
But if you find a way to break my back
With needles, thread, and guilt
Will you cover me in kerosene
And burn my strychnine quilt
Yeah, will you spit upon the path I took
Will you cry from all the drugs I took
Will be my little come down hook
And I'll never ask again
Will I wake up feeling half of you
Has been striped or torn in two
To kill a young man's point of view
Is to kill his only friend
Oh, oh

Tomorrow
We're gonna find a place to live
I'm packing only means for red wood dreams
It's a place that you'll be excepted
Oh fuck the world
Just a boy and a girl
But it's that leach you'll have to shake
Through the love we'll need to make
Call me sure
Yeah I'm sure I said
I said I'm open wide
But you really have to understand
We'll build a water slide
If you're brave enough to hold my hand
Oh, oh

    General Commenttomorrow might be my favorite song by the band. the lyrics are laced together so intricately and with so much purpose it makes me almost cry. its about this complicated person who no longer wants to live. people have been tearing his self-esteem down for so long that there is nothing left.

    "But if you find a way to break my back
    With needles, thread, and guilt
    Will you cover me in kerosene
    And burn my strychnine quilt"

    now his back, what holds him up and contols his actions, is a cruel fuck-the-world attitude thatis self destructive and can only be brocken by the guilt of his actions and changed by the sewing back up of his heart that has been torn wide in two. but he doesnt stop there. he has to make sure that its all done away with. he needs her to burn his the posion that drentches every aspect of himself.

    "Will you wake up feeling half of you
    Has been striped or torn in two
    To kill a young man’s point of view
    Is to kill his only friend"

    this part is really amazing. hes saying that his point of veiw on life is his only friend and if she were to kill it, it would be like killing herself. wat i find really interesting though is that he says half of her would be stripped away. like there is possibly another point of view that he might have. maybe hes not all poisoned and he can live after all.

    essentially its about being in a shitty state of mind and haveing only one person that understands you while the rest of the world fucks you and you hate yourself for what you have become. the second half is almost a suicide note saying he and his love are leaving to try what is ever next togther. i dont know but i still get the feeling that, there inside of him, nomatter how small, is a part that hungers for live and has a longing to belong. and that longing is the fuel to the battle he will fight for life. wanting to and almost giving up. thats wat the song is about.

    General CommentTomorrow
    I’m gonna find a way to die
    I’m living only for a lover
    And the death of you and I

    i think the song is about how a relationship had ended and that she was all he lived for..and now he just feels like shit since its all over.

    General CommentI think it is about suicide, but then realizing that thats not the way.


    "Tomorrow
    We�re gonna find a place to live"

    That shows that he doesn't want to die anymore. that he wants to live, and the "Fuck the World" Is just saying, "Who cares what other people think? This is my life"

    Song Meaning*DISCLAIMER* I have just obtained a copy of Justin Furstenfeld's book Crazy Making. It's not very detailed, but it contains all the lyrics to all current (The Answers - Approaching Normal) Blue October songs, and his inspiration behind them. As I said, it's not very detailed, but it's his words on every Blue October song that is in the book. I know everyone interprets a song differently from everyone else, but having the original intent behind the song will be helpful to people who don't fully understand a song. Also, any grammatical errors are not made by me, I'm putting down Justin's words exactly how he writes them. So yea... enjoy :)

    Tomorrow: "I'd experiment to see wut/how each dose differed the writing. The creations or songs from then on, meant by any means necassary"
