  • Tomorrow people, where is your past?
    Tomorrow people, how long will you last?
    Tomorrow people, where is your past?
    Tomorrow people, how long will you last?

    Today you say you deyah
    Tomorrow you say you're gone
    But you're gone so long
    If there is no love in your heart - so sorry
    Then there is no hope for you - true, true

    Tomorrow people, where is your past?
    Tomorrow people, how long will you last?
    Tomorrow people, where is your past?
    Tomorrow people, how long will you last?

    So you're in the air
    But you still don't have a thing to spare
    You're flying high
    While we're on the low o-o-oh

    Tomorrow people, where is your past?
    Tomorrow people, how long will you last? Tell me now
    Tomorrow people, where is your past? No where
    Tomorrow people, how long will you last? Ten years!

    Stop tellin' me the same story
    Today you say you deyah
    Tomorrow you say you're gone and you're not coming back
    If there is no love in your heart oh now
    There will never be hope for you

    Tomorrow people, where is your past?
    Tomorrow people, how long will you last? Ten years!
    Tomorrow people, where is your past?
    Tomorrow people, tomorrow people, come on
    Tomorrow people, tomorrow people, come on
    Tomorrow people, tomorrow people, no soon come
    Tomorrow people, tomorrow people, soon come
    Tomorrow people, tomorrow people, today is here

    If you don't know your past, you don't know your future
    Everyone
    Don't know your past, don't know your future everyman
    Don't know your past, don't know your future, come on
    Don't know your past, don't know your future

    How many nations
    How many people did that one catch
    How many nations did that one catch
    Don't know past, don't know your future
    Don't know past, don't know your future
