If he tries to rule the sky, he must fall

On repeat on my Media Player….Cat Stevens – Tuesday’s Dead. It has a lot of meaning if you get past the rolling rhythm. Here’s the lyrics:

Tuesday’s Dead – Cat Stevens (1971. From the “Teaser and the Firecat” album)

If I make a mark in time
I can’t say the mark is mine
I’m only the underline of the word
Yes, I’m like him, just like you
I can’t tell you what to do
Like everybody else I’m searching through
what I’ve heard
Whoa – where do you go when you don’t
want no one to know
Who told tomorrow – Tuesday’s dead
Oh preacher won’t you paint my dream
won’t you show me where you’ve been,
show me what I haven’t seen
to ease my mind
‘Cause I will learn to understand
If I have a helping hand
I wouldn’t make another demand, all my life
Whoa – where do you go when you don’t
want no one to know
Who told tomorrow – Tuesday’s dead
What’s my sex, what’s my name,
all in all it’s all the same
everybody plays a different game – that is all
Now man my live, man may die
searching for the question why,
but if he tries to rule the sky, he must fall
Whoa – where do you go when you don’t
want no one to know
who told tomorrow – Tuesday’s dead
Now every second on the nose
The humdrum of the city grows
reaching out beyond the throes
of our time
We must try to shake it down
Do our best to break the ground
try to turn the world around – one more time
Yes – we must try to shake it down
do our best to break the ground
try to turn the world around
one more time
Whoa – where do you go when you don’t
want no one to know
Who told tomorrow – Tuesday’s dead

    Which tee did you want to buy? I like the "Radical Islamic Feminist" one, but he‘s got other cool ones too.

    Lol, I have been on his case about the website since November! You should get the "my beard/facial hair causes…" one – I would if I could.

    Joker! Well I‘m sure there are treatments for growing facial hair! Tell him to at least get his store up and then he can earn some money.

  5. i think it is better if you can write more.
