The Cat

THE CAT - By Carroll Bryant

They're watching with the eyes of a corpse
Waiting to see how I do it
Eternity is forever a long time
I can pull it off
But all will die before I prove it

If you want to live on and on, the voices say
Repeat after me, and say it with belief ... conviction!

I do, I do ... through me and be like you
I do, I do ... and live in captivity
I do, I do ... through me to be like you
I do, I do ... and live eternity without love

They roam around, but invisible
Knowing all too well that I can see them
Their words can not be heard ... what'd I hear?
But I can pull the feat
And all must die before I save them

If you want to live on and on, the voices say
Repeat after me, and say it with belief ... conviction!

I do, I do ... through me and be like you
I do, I do ... and live in captivity
I do, I do ... through me to be like you
I do, I do ... and live eternity without love

I spoke the evil rhyme
Drank the magic liquid wine
Opened my gates of plea
Just to witness all I see

I crossed the Holy line
To shake hands with pure devine
God was on my mind

God was on my side
Right here beside me

They whisper with the tongue of the deceased
Telling lies among each other's presence
But I can fool a fox, and slither like a snake
I elude their trap because I am where it's at

The cat!

If you want to live on and on, the voices say
Repeat after me, and say it with belief ... conviction!

I do, I do ... through me and be like you
I do, I do ... and live in captivity
I do, I do ... through me to be like you
I do, I do ... and live eternity without love

I do!
