"Tomorrow" as written by Benjamin David Gillies and Daniel Paul Johns....
It's twelve o'clock and it's a wonderful day
I know you hate me but I'll ask anyway
Won't you come with me to a place in a little town
The only way to get there's to go straight down
There's no bathroom and there is no sink
The water out of the tap is very hard to drink
Very hard to drink
You wait til tomorrow
You wait til tomorrow

You say that money isn't everything
But I'd like to see you live without it,
You think you can keep on going living like a king,
Oh babe, but I strongly doubt it

Very hard to drink,
Very hard to drink,
You gonna wait too, fat boy,
Fat boy, wait til tomorrow,
You gonna wait too, fat boy,
Fat boy, wait til tomorrow,

You, wait til tomorrow,
You, wait til tomorrow,
You gonna wait too, fat boy,
Fat boy, wait til tomorrow,
You gonna wait too, fat boy,
Fat boy, wait til tomorrow.

    General CommentI think this song is about a certain type of hypocrite. A rich man who thinks that he knows what the real world is like and that he can survive outside of his bubble. In reality, however, he does not stand a chance in the real world. Achilles could also be correct.

    I do however disagree with myownprisons post about the fat boy stereotype. I think the fat boy comments are not made with the assumption stated ('I was going to say that calling him a "fat boy" is a stereotype but as I think about it, I guess if you were rich, you would have more to eat. It's still a stereotype, but more like a "semi-stereotype"') however, as another word for capitalist pig. Pig = Fat.

    This is all my opinion, I could very well be wrong.

    General CommentThis song is about a rich person who takes his life for granted. That is until he has to spend a night in a trashy hotel room he can't stand staying in but can't get out till the next day.

    General Commenti partly agree with achilles libertine, i think its about daniel looking at someone who is obviously higher class than him and saying, come with me, put up with what people you look down too live with, and ur saying that money isnt all that but u wudnt live without it, money runs out and when it does, you'll regret acting like u acted :)

    General CommentYou say that money isn't everything
    Well I'd like to see you live without it

    To me, these words mean that someone who is richer than the speaker of this song says that money isn't that important. I think Daniel wants the richer man to experience what life is like without it. It's easy to claim that money isn't everything, but sadly, we all depend on the government and it's money in order to live.

    General CommentYou're all only looking at that one line about money. Ever thinkit might be about Hell or something? "The only way to get there's to go straight down."
