I know you vie for the good ol' days
And with less of us around, we were a cinch to sway
Does it feel like it's the end of the world?
Well maybe it is, but when was it not?

'Cause it's true
Me and you
We are all tomorrow's food...
Today.

There's no such thing as the good ol' days
The older we all get, the better we all were
There's no such as 'the end of the world'
(But just in case)
You best batten down and button up!

Because it's true
Me and you
We are all tomorrow's food...
Today!

    General CommentThis song seems to be talking about the past being pointless to worry about, and making decisions that the future will feed off of to make what it will be, hence talking about being food for tomorrow.

    Lyric CorrectionI know you vie for the good ol' days
    there were less of us around, we were a cinch to sway.
    Does it feel like it's the end of the world?
    Well maybe it is, but when was it not?

    'Cause it's true
    me and you
    we are all tomorrow's food...
    today.

    General Comment"'Tomorrow's Food' was written about two years ago. Making it the first song penned for this album. Here Michael shows us once again how deep his musical well runs. A vibrant, sonic quilt is wrapped around us and we are lulled by it's choices and it's warmth. Lyrically I am specifically referencing Philosopher Ken Wilbur's quote from 'A Brief History Of Everything' , "No epoch is finally privileged. We are all tomorrow's food. The process continues. And spirit is found in the process itself, not in any particular epoch, or time, or place." No one had ever put so succinctly and eloquently into words how I felt about growing up. About reaching my mid-thirties. After reading this quote, and witnessing the vast push and pull at play between the old and the new, the young and the not so young, I saw the inherent beauty and wisdom in the process of it all. And consequently, wrote a song about it. It is in this reporter's opinion that we are in the midst of a massive shift. Culturally, ethically, artistically, technologically, intellectually, philosophically and spiritually. Almost of of the "-ally's". This shift has occurred before; with different details and end results of course. And this shift will happen again. Absolutely. The new thing at play is our awareness of this shift. The awareness that there is never an 'end of the world'. Only the process and the choice to witness and to participate. What may feel like the end of the world is that humbling moment when you realize that a new set of ideas has usurped your generation's ideas. Confused and confounded by the "way things are going" you can't help but think it's all going to shit, and that you have to fight to defend what you've built. But in actuality what is occurring is a necessary evolution. A handing over of the collective baton. If not now, when?"
