LYRICS (thanks to www.songfacts.com)##############

Today is the greatest
Day I've ever known
Can't live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow's much too long
I'll burn my eyes out 
Before I get out

I wanted more
Than life could ever grant me
Bored by the chore
Of saving face

Today is the greatest 
Day I've ever known
Can't wait for tomorrow
I might not have that long 
I'll tear my heart out
Before I get out

Pink ribbon scars
That never forget
I tried so hard
To cleanse these regrets
My angel wings
Were bruised and restrained
My belly stings

Today is
Today is
Today is
The greatest day

I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you

Today is the greatest
Today is the greatest day
TOday is the greatest day
That I have ever really known
