"Tomorrow's Fool" as written by and Charles Nicholas Joseph Costa....
I will be a fool today
I'm scared of what tomorrow brings
Tears will flow, I'll beat myself
But I'm too proud to ever change
Lord give me the strength to be
A man who could never be loved
Fearful, reckless, lazy, thoughtless,
Charmless traits betide my mind

Money buys the easy life
The easy life
Ain't easy at all

No sound of love will deafen me
No sound of love will deafen me
No resounding gong will echo here
No resounding gong will echo here

Pride is kept from questioning
His gatekeeper is arrogance
Wise men preach with healing words
The wicked teach cutting remarks

Beware romantic gestures
Are investments in your vanity
I hope I'm not too despicable
To bring ruin to love's purity

No sound of love will deafen me
No sound of love will deafen me
No resounding gong will echo here
No resounding gong will echo here

When I'm in turmoil my Lord is with me
When I'm in turmoil my Lord is with me
When I'm in turmoil my Lord is with me
When I'm in turmoil my Lord is with me

    General CommentThis song is referencing 1 Corinthians 13

    1If I speak in human and angelic tongues* but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. 2And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing.b 3If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.

    I would argue that this is the allusion meant here. Futhermore, the artist would need a fairly strong exposure to the bible to know this passage. It is near the wedding vow passage in 1 corinthians 13, however most people are not familiar with this section. He also speaks directly to God, as though praying. So I would definitely argue that he is a somewhat spiritual man at least.
