Today’s song comes from an American punk rock band from Antelope Valley, California. Slick Shoes appears to have been influenced by Nirvana based upon the songs on their Rusty album. This group is named after a character from the 1985 movie the Goonies. After glancing at the lyrics, Slick Shoes doesn’t contain any life altering message, but appears to have fun singing each song.
Come now, you who say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a city and spend a year there and carry on our business and make money. 14 Yet you do not know [the least thing] about what may happen tomorrow. What is the nature of your life? You are [really] but a wisp of vapor (a puff of smoke, a mist) that is visible for a little while and then disappears [into thin air], James 4:13-14.
The song What Happens Next appears to be based upon the passage above. While writing first century Christians scattered throughout Europe and Africa, Jesus’ earthly brother reveals how fragile life is on earth. Nothing is guaranteed as only God knows what tomorrow will bring. Therefore, instead of speculating on what will happens next, appreciate each day the Lord gives you.
