This song is by Atmosphere and appears on the album Lucy Ford (2001).

Original video
(In tomorrow I see no promise)
(And yesterday was like today)

Woke up, got up, near eleven o'clock
Butt naked except I was wearing my socks
And that's cool, 'cause most the time this floor is cold
Stand up and stretch, look around this mess

My place has been a cage since she left me
Make my way to the kitchen, start the coffee
Then dip to the bathroom, begin the triple-s
And wash the previous evening off me

Now out the shower, get dry, shove a q-tip in my ear
Well, what do we have here?
It appears as if a piece of me has got motivation
Ain't nothin' wrong with a little morning masturbation

Fresh, dressed like fifty cents
Clean and awake now I'm ready to commence
Spark up the caffeine and nicotine binge
And that's pretty much the pattern of how the day begins

And I write for an hour, maybe half hour more
Then I put on my shoes and grab my key for the door
Put my headphones on for this world I ignore
Trek down the street towards the record store

"Hey, bro - how you doing, anything new today?"
"Nah man, how you been? it's the same old same again"
Well, then I'll be gone, friend, I'll see you around
Then I'm out, destination uptown

In the summertime the women wear a lot of skin
And if I sit in one spot I can take 'em all in
Sometimes I even talk to see if I can make one grin
And if not, yo, it's cool I ain't gonna take it personally

From Anne Landers, to Ani DiFranco to Orphan Annie
I love all women, but most of them just can't stand me
I don't know, maybe it's my hair or my clothes
"...or maybe she noticed that you was diggin' in your nose..."

Either way it's okay, I wasn't tryin' to get laid
I just wanted to say "I hope you have a great day"
And then she stopped with a smile that began to blush
"Here, take my number, call me up, I'll come over and make you lunch"

I got up and headed down towards the bookstore
To check the titles that my man Michael's got me lookin' for
My visit was short 'cause I just couldn't feel
That cat behind the counter actin' like I'm here to steal

So I dipped back out into a cloud of tattoos
Pierced body parts and colorful hairdos
And I questioned, did Babylon resemble this?
Are we getting any closer to the end of the list?

A sensuous kiss, placed on apoco-lips
We teach them how to make a fist, but not to resist
And I'm wondering how did we find this position
But people are people and I still love 'em (especially the women)

Onwards to the coffee shop, maybe Muddies
For a refill and some sociological studies
See the junkies, while they co-exist with the sobers
All the bugging of eyeballs, the shrugging of shoulders

And that's when I saw her, sippin' on water
I wanna kiss her mom just for having this daughter
Excuse me miss, I don't mean to come across strong
But I've been waitin' a while and you've been taking too long

And she smiled and I began to blush
She asked if I'd like to go to the bathroom and make some love
And I got visions of us and the mirror getting steamed
And that's the very moment I woke up from the dream

Woke up, got up, near eleven o'clock
Butt naked except I was wearing my socks
And that's cool, 'cause most the time this floor is cold
Stand up and stretch and look for my soul

(In tomorrow I see no promise)
(And yesterday was like today)
(In tomorrow I see no promise)
(And yesterday was like today)

(In tomorrow I see no promise)
(And yesterday was like today)
(In tomorrow I see no promise)
(And yesterday was like today)
