Not Promised Tomorrow

STUCK MOJO

About This Song


Before there was Limp Bizkit or Korn, there was Atlanta’s forefathers of rap metal, the one and only Stuck Mojo. They brought the live party to heavy metal. I saw these guys a handful of times in the late 90’s/early 2000’s and they always put on a hellva show. Are they comical? Sometimes. Are they fun? Always. There’s no way to stand still to this band—they will get you moving. Rich Ward (guitar and vocals) and Bonz (lead vocals) are just an insane duo. When you want a heavy, good time, go see Stuck Mojo.

The band has broken up and reassembled a few times and is now rumored to be back in the saddle. Let’s hope they go old-school and bring some of that flavor to the new era.

The band is charismatic so I wanted to illustrate a poster as such. Don’t have your head in the clouds. Know that today could be your last. Nothing is guaranteed and no one is promised tomorrow. What would you do today if you know tomorrow isn’t there?

LYRICS /

Youth never learns the truth about life.
All they see is money, ‘hos, a lot of hype.
I can tell you things that are wrong and some are right,
but I have a view of a different type.

I seen him come up on the block slang the rocks for the cops,
and my mother’s overworked and my pop’s gone berserk.
She puts on teeny weeny skirts for the money, that ain’t funny.
I got to stay alive do what I do to survive!

If I close my eyes will I rise?
If I don’t that won’t be no surprise.
I live my life like my last.
Learned many lessons but I have to laugh.
Because your not…
…Promised…
…Tomorrow!
Because your not…
…Promised…
…Tomorrow!
Because your not…
…Promised…
…Tomorrow!
Because your not…
…so live for today.

One life to live full of stress and strife.
Obstacles of chaos any time, many kind.
I can tell you things that are wrong and some are
right,
but I have a view of a different type.

I seen him grow up kinda wild,

a spoiled child living foul and he’s fed a silver spoon,

and he still acts like a goon.
I don’t understand it son.
Why must you carry a gun?
For the fun and the fame, pulling triggers ain’t no game.

If I close my eyes will I rise?
If I don’t that won’t be no surprise.
I live my life like my last.
Learned many lessons but I have to laugh.
Because your not…
…Promised…
…Tomorrow!
Because your not…
…Promised…
…Tomorrow!
Because your not…
…Promised…
…Tomorrow!
Because your not…
…so live for today.

Fuck the dumb ditty dumb able bodies being bums.
People always talking shit, get yours if it’s not legit.
How you think the rich got rich?
Cry and bitch and pitch a fit.
I say mind over matter and your pockets will be phatter!!!

If I close my eyes will I rise?
If I don’t that won’t be no surprise.
I live my life like my last.
Learned many lessons but I have to laugh.
Because your not…
…Promised…
…Tomorrow!
Because your not…
…Promised…
…Tomorrow!
Because your not…
…Promised…
…Tomorrow!
Because your not…
…Live my life like my last.
Because your not…
