Yesterday man, he gets out of bed
He has a quick drink, to clear his head
He gathers his thoughts, then gathers his things
And lights a big fire and throws them all in

Yesterday man, recalls yesterdays life
A little toy train and yesterdays wife
He starts to feel cold, his dinosaur bones
are rattling around, in his yesterday clothes

Yesterday Man, has nothing to lose
The thoughts in his head, are yesterdays views
He’s going along, he’s on his way home
He’s heading home, he’s travelling home, he’s looking for home

Yesterday man, no longer belongs
He’s sing out loud, his yesterday’s songs
There’s a crowd in his head, they’re cheering him on,
They’re chanting his name, it’s his time in the sun

Yesterday man, is yesterday’s news
He’s walking around, in yesterdays shoes
He’s travelling alone, he’s on his way home
He’s on his way home, he’s going home, he’s on his way home

Oh “start waking up, stop screwing up, start growing up” – he grew sideways instead
Now, there’s nowhere to go, he’s lying in the snow and he doesn’t know if it’s all in his head

Yesterday man, leaves nothing behind
He’s taking up space, the last of his kind
He’s looking for crumbs, to find his way home

He’s looking for home, he’s going home, he’s on his way home
He’s going home, he’s travelling home, he’s looking for home
