There is no yesterday
There is no tomorrow
Can't look, can't speak
Another word
As far as you know
Over and over
Clear and forgotten

Over and over
Over and over
There is no tomorrow
There is no tomorrow

    General CommentSome history:

    "But fate played a hand while he was in Amsterdam with the Trees and Homme met up with Dave Catching. Somehow they wound up with free studio time and wrote and recorded a song for the Roadrunner stoner compilation 'Burn One Up' (ironic as Kyuss virtually invented stoner rock but actually despised the term). The song was called '18 AD'. And after a brief dalliance under the name Gamma Ray, it was QOTSA's first ever song. "We recorded it with a giant stack of mushrooms, marijuana and ecstasy," recalls Catching happily.

    General CommentGreat song, I think it's 'Cannot catch me in other words' after 'There is no tomorrow', not too sure though.

    General CommentI always heard "Can't speak another word" before "as far as you know". I really love this song how the bass is hammering in one ear and the guitar in the other. It'd have to say its about distorted perceptions you get while you are high, maybe the the guy who is tripping out is 18 and feels like he died. Hey it happens.
