Conquer Tomorrow

from 18 Carat Garbage Demos by Billie Ray Martin

lyrics

raised in no-man's land of solitude and time
a radio's playing but the song's too pale to shine
you're like your mobile home that's, that's been parked in desert land
there's only a shopping mall to pull at the traveller's hands

you're the echo of another day that time forgets

conquer tomorrow
it's like a call from the past
conquer tomorrow
and make it last just as long as it lasts
and hold on to today cause this may be as good as it gets
do you ever, do you ever see such grace?

from the tequila inside you you wouldn't be too suprised
if an alien landed in your trashcan tonight
and there's a casino waiting at the chance of your restlessness
it looks like a spacecraft shining through the fog and the mist

and should you decide to gamble any future that you possess

conquer tomorrow
it's like a hole in the past
conquer tomorrow
and make it last just as long as it lasts
and hold on to today cause this may be as good as it gets
have you ever, have you ever been this blessed?

and did you ever
did you ever, yeah
and did you ever know that you're you're larger than life?

conquer tomorrow
it's like a hole in the past
conquer tomorrow
and make it last just as long as it lasts
and hold on to today cause this may be as good as it gets
and don't ever, (yeah) don't ever feel dispossessed

conquer tomorrow
it's like a call from the past
conquer tomorrow, yes
