"How Will I Laugh Tomorrow" as written by Michael Muir and Mike Clark....
Here I sit and watch my world come crumbling down
I cry for help but no one's around
Silently screaming I bang my head against the wall
It seems like no one cares at all
Always an emotion, but how can I explain
How can I explain
Kind of like the scent of a rose
With words I can't explain
The same with my pain
Caught up in emotion-Goes over my head
Goes over my head
Sometimes I got to think to myself is this life or death
Am I living or am I dead
The clock keeps ticking but nothing else seems to change
Problems never solved, just rearranged
And when I think about all the times that I've had
So few good-So many bad
I search for personality and I look for things I can not see

Love and peace flash through my mind
Pain and hate are all I find
Find no hope in nothing new
Never had a dream come true
Lies and hate and agony
Through my eyes that's all I see
If I'm gonna cry
Will you wipe away my tears?
If I'm gonna die
Lord please take away my fear
Before I drown in sorrow
Last thing that I'll say
How will I laugh tomorrow
If I can't even smile today
Today today, when I can't even smile today
Today today, when I can't even smile today
How will I laugh tomorrow, when I can't even smile today
How will I laugh tomorrow, when I can't even smile today

    General Commentthis is such a good song. it expresses everything i needed to say out loud once. and as soon as i heard it i loved it. it's just a really really good song. i think this is probably the best suicidal tendencies song i've heard. it's just amazing.

    General Commentwow...almost 3 years and still missing the scond part of the song.....HERE!

    You think it's so funny...
    ...laugh at this!

    So when I look outside my room
    I see the world, but not the reason
    What is done to me is not fair
    You call it fair I call it treason
    But I don't know what to do
    Give me a sign I'll take whatever
    But if you want me here I am
    Ain't gonna die forever

    And I tried to hold ya
    But you just turned away
    And I tried to tell ya
    But not a word I say
    I cried out so loudly
    But you just covered your ears
    I gave you all the signs,
    but you ignored my tears

    So if you want me here I am
    I sit here waiting for your decision
    But my body fights my mind
    I headed straight for a collision
    So am I getting near or am I still
    Looking in all the wrong places
    But the only thing that seems to change
    Are the looks on the faces...

    Doesn't anyone...seems like no one cares at all
    I search for personality and look for things I cannot see
    Does anyone even care at all?
    Love and peace flash through my mind; pain and hate is all I find
    Seems like no one cares at all
    Find no hope in nothing new and I never had a dream come true
    Does anyone even care at all?
    Lies and hate and agony; thru my eyes that's all I see
    Seems like no one cares at all

    How will I laugh tomorrow?
    How will I laugh tomorrow?
    How will I laugh tomorrow?
    How will I laugh tomorrow, when I can't even smile today

    Today today; when I can't even smile today
    Today today; when I can't even smile today
    How will I laugh tomorrow, when I can't even smile today
    How will I laugh tomorrow, when I can't even smile today...

    General Commenthe's saying nothing ever goes his way and he's too depressed to even smile so he's thinking "how will i laugh tomorrow". pretty simple

    General Commentbest lyrics, and for the record, I've been looking for those last verses since like 1990, because they were never in the lyrics sheet

    great, great song, Mike Muir did his best lyrics in the Feel Like Shit album and the first one

    General Commenti really connect with this song a lot of the time. thinking about the fact that someone else wrote it helps me get through it. it lets me know i'm not the only one who feels that way, that i am not alone. this is a great song too.

    General CommentJust about depression. What it basically says is that you need to make a small step today to do a bigger thing tomorrow. Sounds cheesy, but that's what I get out of it. Suicidal for Fukkin life!
