"Can't Catch Tomorrow (Good Shoes Won't Save You This Time)" as written by and Ian/gaze Watkins....
Done a thousand times and a million more
How many lies did he tell this time?
How many times did he cross the line?
It won't help me but I have to ask
Is there something real that's behind the mask?
Something true we don't know about?
A little faith then a much to doubt

And maybe someday you will grow
Maybe someday you will know
Maybe someday you will end these tears and go

A little piece of me grows old
I keep on walking down this road
I've seen a million people change
But I won't stay the same
Had to know you, (Know you, know you)
How to steal and borrow
Had to know you, (Know you, know you)
Never catch, you're never gonna catch tomorrow

I'm sure I've played this scene before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
I'm sure I used to hold your hand
Did I hurt you?
All this attitude with no history
All this anger when you were attacking me
Got a lot to learn and you need to know
That your time is up can't let it go

Maybe someday you will grow
Maybe someday you will know
Maybe someday you will end these tears and go

A little piece of me grows old
I keep on walking down this road
I've seen a million people change
But I won't stay the same
Had to know you, (Know you, know you)
How to steal and borrow
Had to know you, (Know you, know you)
Never catch, you're never gonna catch tomorrow

Never gonna catch tomorrow

A little piece of me grows old
I keep on walking down this road
I've seen a million people change
But I won't stay the same
Had to know you, (Know you, know you)
How to steal and borrow
Had to know you, (Know you, know you)
Never gonna catch tomorrow

Yeah the head comes hot
But this is gotta stop
Good shoes won't save you this time
I think your gonna find where
The everything can ride
Time is running out of this line

Had to know you, (Know you, know you)
How to steal and borrow
Had to know you, (Know you, know you)
Never catch, you're never gonna catch tomorrow

    General Comment"how many lies did you tell this time?
    how many times did you cross the line?
    it won't help me, but I have to ask
    is there something real that's behind the mask?
    something true we don't know about?
    a little faith in amongst the doubt?"

    I think this is about two friends or somethiing who used ot be really close but then one friend chanegd a lot and the other one feels really betrayed but also kind of wants to help or wishes they could go back to how it used to be. i think the one that changed is lying all the time now and became completely fake and no one really knows what they feel anymore, when before they used to tell each other everything.

    "I'm sure I've seen this look before
    done a thousand times and a million more"

    i think that part's like they're almost expecting this friend to be fake and lie and they almost expect them to fail and they're getting relly frustrated that the friend won't just snap out of it.

    "I'm sure I used to hold your hand
    did I hurt you?
    all this attitude with no history
    all this anger when you're attacking me"

    Maybe they think that their friend changed because of something they did and now they feel bad because they think they could have prevented all of this. And now they're fighting all the time and there's no real reason for it, so they think they might have hurt their friend somehow to change them so much and make them so angry.

    I could be way off with this but I think most of this because it all really relates to something me and my friend are going through right now... Anyways, great song. Cheers!

    General Commenti really like this song, but it's "but i will stay the same"
    i think it's about people who are afraid of being themselves, but i don't really know... i would like to hear some other opinions on this one^^

    General CommentHe says 'The Haircuts hot, but this has gotta stop
    and good shoes wont save you this time
    Think you're gonna find with everything combined
    that time, times run out on this lie.'
    Awesome, probably the best on Liberation Transmission :]

    General Commenti get the impression from this song that they are singing about someone whos changed alot.
    They look and act fake, and lie just to fit in.
    "maybe someday you will grow
    maybe someday you will know
    maybe someday you will end these fears and go"
    - i think that they are saying that someday the person will grow up,
    finally know who they really are, get rid of their fears of not fitting in and go and live their life.
