Down the Street of the Cat Who fished

You?d heard about the coming storm
From the fool you?d long suspected
And though you wore your brightest crown
Your demands were not respected
The test you set divides your flesh
Yet you said she won?t be missed
Then over time you lost your mind
Down the street of the cat who fished

Eve gambled all her favourite clothes
On a beast that had no shoes
But when it came to right and wrong
She thought that she might lose
Only having even odds
Just wasn?t worth the risk
So she loved her man and away she ran
Down the street of the cat who fished

Romeo?s not the staying kind
But you went out on a limb
You never had that much to give
But what you had you gave him
When love was blind he stole your time
And betrayed you with a kiss
The last you saw was a closing door
Down the street of the cat who fished

Godot?s friend said it?s the end
When he saw the sun descending
So he waited still in ancient hills
With the view he?d been defending
But a new day came that was just the same
As the one that follows this
So he cursed his luck and the path he took
Down the street of the cat who fished

Desdemona?s like a movie star
And you say she has a nerve
But they all think the camera?s on
And they?re Catherine Deneuve
Mais, tout le monde c?est une petite etape
Et les mots sont sur la page
Le histoire c?est la meme c?est la nommes qui change
Sur la rue de la chat qui peche

The love she knew hurt through and through
And leaves her all alone
She sees the dead inside her head
And hangs beside the phone
So now she never hear?s it ring
And doubts that she exists
And she and Descartes search for proof
Down the street of the cat who fished

Narcissus see?s strange faces stare
From the newest bridge of nine
He see?s them from the bank side path
As he struggle?s back in time
They say they?ve seen his dying scene
As he gazed and made a wish
Before he vanished beautifully,
Down the street of the cat who fished

Scheherazade counts her dreams at night
And the stories that she?d made
But one by one the stars were gone
And the light began to fade
Then the sandman came and called her name
And took her by the wrist
But she won?t speak and tries to sleep
Down the street of the cat who fished

You said that I?m the peaceful kind
But you know it isn?t so
I?ve always walked a crooked mile
And bargained for my soul
My virtue is my shamelessness
All goodness has been stripped
Come and see what?s left of me
Down the street of the cat who fished

So now it?s time for us to leave
This world and all it?s ways
I?m weary of uncertainty
And dizzy of the maze,
So let?s not fight eternity
There?s nothing to resist
We?re prisoners of the endless days
Down the street of the cat who fished
