lyrics

MY CATS TAIL

My cat’s tail
is curved like a question mark
Though he doesn’t understand
what that means to a cat like me
He just sits on the windowsill
staring at the blue, blue sky
He’s probably thinking about
Eastern philosophy

Lord, it seemed so easy to believe
in anything, oh, when I was young
A flash of light could make the demon go away,
magic was a fact,
and I hoped that I might fly someday
But now I challenge anyone to stand upon their faith
and make the case for me beyond a doubt,
iron all my theories out
Well, straighten up these questing curves
Calm the sea with certainty and offer me enlightenment

And I would believe
I would give up these pragmatic tendencies
Oh and I would play
to that Absolute everyday

My cat sighs
in the middle of the night lying in a shaft of window light
I guess I envy him sometimes
‘cause he just seems so content in dreams
But he can’t even go outside
He’s a prisoner –never has to make up his own mind
Well, well. I guess that’s one cozy way to make in this crazy world,
but what’s the price of his advice, when...

If I could believe
I would give up these pragmatic tendencies
Oh and I would play
to that Absolute everyday

My cat’s tail is curved like a question mark
though he doesn’t understand what that means to a cat like me
He just sits on the windowsill staring at the blue, blue sky
He’s probably thinking about chasing the birds flying by
