Lyrics
:

My father said "Son, now my life's work is done
There's a future for you, there's a job to be done
Stop fighting the system 'cause the system won't break
Get your hair cut boy and learn from my mistakes"
I said to my father "Father give me a break
There's a million more chances that I'm gonna take
I don't want to die like I saw you die
In a dead end job in a dead end way"

And how many years must I waste in the black times
How many years must I waste

Today I just might be no one
Tomorrow I might really be someone
Oh give me a future now 
I need it so badly now
Oh for tomorrow

(Let's go)

I said to my father "won't you give me a break
'Cause there's a million more chances that I'm want to take
I don't want to die like I saw you die
In a dead end job in a dead end way"

And how many years must I waste in the black times
How many years must I waste

Today I just might be no one
Tomorrow I might really be someone
Oh give me a future now 
I need it so badly now
Oh for tomorrow

I see the signs of bad times everywhere I run
I can't escape them
No matter how hard I try
I see the signs of bad time everywhere I run
I see it shining in your eyes
And it makes me sad to see you cry
Oh it makes me sad to see you cry

How many years must I waste in the black times
How many years must I waste

Today I just might be no one
Tomorrow I might really be someone
Oh give me a future now 
I need it so badly now
Oh for tomorrow

Oh for tomorrow
