Make Tomorrow

In the previous post, the first one of the New Year – 2017, I shared information with an abundant number of links for further reading about the 10,000 Year Clock project. Reading about that project and one of the principals involved, music producer Brian Eno, set me to thinking about another musician named, Peter Gabriel, and a song he wrote titled, Make Tomorrow. This song comes from the his album titled; OVO – the millennial show. Both Gabriel and Eno have run in the same musical circles for quite a long time and they have worked with many of the same artists over the years.

The album offers music with a rich and ethereal quality. Some elements of trance music, rock and even jazz. The central theme of the song titled, Make Tomorrow shares a similar idea with that of the 10,000 year clock project – thinking for the long-term… and so, here are the lyrics:

“Make Tomorrow”

Put on the dress in which you were married
Pull down the veil til your eyes are hid
Can you remember where we both came from
Let us do as we did
Look at tomorrow today
Making tomorrow today
Making tomorrow today
Making tomorrow today
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow today
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow today
Put back the photo under your window
Put down the phone that you hold in your hand
Put away these things that stand in between us
Let us be what we can
When it seems
Hopeless
When it seems
Hopeless
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow today
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow today
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow today
What better measure of what you were doing here
Than what you can leave behind
All the children of your children’s children
Do you ever think what they’re going to find
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow
Where the sacred meet the scared
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow
Where the dreamer’s dream is dared
In each of us
A dream can burn like the sun
Let’s try it all one more time
To get this lesson learned
Sitting up in a spaceship
Looking down at the earth
You wonder what they’re all struggling for
What’s it all really worth
Making tomorrow today
Making tomorrow today
Make tomorrow
Make tomorrow
