Another favorite song that found on my playlist. About this song: "Tomorrow" featuring an acoustic guitar intro and electric guitar coda. With the theme of poverty, the song is regarded as an alternative rock anthem and part of art rock.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Tomorrow"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
...very hard to drink.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Okay, let me explain this one... The FIRST time these lyrics are used, they're totally appropriate. They appear as, "There is no bathroom and there is no sink. The water from the tap is very hard to drink.," at the end of the first verse. That's all well and good (though I'm kind of confused where the "tap" would be if there was no sink). The SECOND time these lyrics appear is right after the second verse is over, appearing out of nowhere after the singer has changed the subject. "You say that money isn't everything, but I'd like to see you live without it. You think you can go on living like a king, ooh but I highly doubt it...very hard to drink." See what I mean?
Submitted by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe
"Do You Feel The Same"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Do you feel the same anyway? Now you've come.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Come where? The line doen't really mean anything in relation to the rest of the song.
