Lyrics

Once upon a time the time was now.

And 'Yesterday' was just a popular song.

Tomorrow and today feigned to get along.

And then yesterday went wrong.

Brightly shown the mise-en-scene.

The earth and the air and the sun were green.

And you knew that there was something you were gonna be

And then, yesterday went wrong.

Where you gonna go

Once the world says, “Man, you no longer belong”?

Where you gonna go

Once yesterday’s wrong?

 

It ain’t rained here in real real long.

 

The earth’s parched in tomorrow’s heat.

 

You’d drown at the bottom, but your well's run dry.

Hearts are punished for each done good deed.

Got to eat a frog, better swallow fast.

Got to eat two? It’s the small one last.

They’re all brightly colored as your checkered past

And as poisonous as yesterday’s wrong.

Where you gonna go

Once your purpose has been scavenged by a murder of crows.

Hope’s a magpie choking down stones.

And yesterday’s wrong.

Do the horrors around you no longer make you gasp?

Does your reach no longer exceed your grasp?

Do sorrow, shame and fear borrow to your core?

Have they finally wrestled from you just what a heaven’s for?

The future’s seared, furled,  gone,

Lost to the wind like seed.

But hope springs eternal for the beautiful,

The powerful, the stupid, and effete.

Green expatiates its own kind,

Selling off the places a man could rest his mind.

Man should have been blessed, now he’s lost and unkind,

And his yesterday gone wrong.

Where you gonna go

Once the world says, “Man, you no longer belong”?

Where you gonna go

Once yesterday’s wrong?
