Glen Phillips: The Next Day lyrics



They got my number down
They know how tight to twist
One day they'll claim me
'Til then I'll be here
Tic-toc the hour goes
Junk food, junk TV shows
I can't remember
One thing I took in

Everyday, I promise (that)
I will change, the next day
New Years came
And everybody took the same vow we get it, better start it now

Awaken by degrees
Information as disease
The march of progress is
Kicking me lifeless
Good God, look at what we've lost
Built on a holocaust
Gave beads and blankets
For what was priceless

Everyday, I promise (that)
I will change, the next day
New Years came
And everybody took the same vow we get it, better start it now

Things are gonna change this time
Things are gonna change
Every empire has it's day, then it fades
Things are gonna change
Things are gonna change

How come it got so bad?
The noblest experiment
Maybe it's all done
We'll start a new one

Everyday, I promise (that)
I will change, the next day
New Years came
And everybody took the same vow we get it, better start it now

Everyday, I promise (that)
I will change, the next day
New Years came
And everybody took the same vow we get it, better start it now

Better start it now

Start the next day
