Tomorrow Lyrics

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,

    This is song is about choosing a life of risk and adventure over a typical life of relying on money and having things. Those who decide to venture off "Today" verses those who always say I'll go "Tomorrow" find true happiness in how it is meant to be. "Today" refers to the sun still shining in the skies. We won't always have it.

    Lead singer Daniel Johns was watching TV when he came up with the idea for this song. There was a news story about a rich man who is asked to stay at a poor hotel. He pretty much hated it and begged to leave, but the employees kept telling that he won't leave "till tomorrow".

    Daniel John’s said he would never play this song again because it came about while he was dealing with his crippling and painful experience with his eating disorder anorexia..he came close to dying... dig a little deeper with a few interviews and you’ll find this information...better to get it from the mouth of the individual than go by what you imagine it to be or rather than about what you heard someone else say..

    It’s about Globalisation,
    It’s the small underdog telling the large corporations, wait till tomorrow fat boy.

    I feel the song is a reflection of someone who is only willing to stay in their comfort zone and to put off responsibilities to a later date.

    “Fat Boy” isn’t a specific person but rather laziness in human nature. “Wait till tomorrow” is the tendency of laziness to become procrastination.

    I been trying to figure it out since 1994. The “only way to get there’s to go straight down” leads me to believe it’s about going to Hell? I think its about telling the fat rich kid wait til tomorrow, you’re going to hell. Just my $0.02.

    It's about some rich kid they hated and didn't try to hide it. A whole music career launched by hatred and the only song they ever did that's worth a shit.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    Someone told me the song is about how the fat cat Europeans layed genocide upon the aborigines by poisoning their water.
