The Crow's Anthem

From The Wiz which I just saw in San Diego (it's on its way to New York again and the set alone is worth the price of a ticket).

This is the song that the crows make the scarecrow sing every day. This is the song Bush should be singing to himself. It's what I was singing while I perused the Iraq Study Group report.

The crows said it better and to music.

You can't win
You can't break even
And you can't get out of the game
People keep sayin'
Things are gonna change
But they look just like they're staying the same
You get in
Way over your head
And you've only got yourself to blame

You can't win, chile
You can't break even
And you can't get out of the game

You can't win
The world keeps movin'
And you're standin' far behind
People keep sayin'
Things 'll get better
Just to ease your state of mind
So you lay back
And you smoke that smoke
And you drink your glass of wine

You can't win, chile
You can't break even
And you can't get out of the game

You can't win
You can't win
No way if your story stays the same
You ain't winnin'
But it's nice to see you
I'm awfully glad you came
Better cool it
'Cause it ain't about losin'
Then the world has got no shame

You can't win, chile
You can't break even
And you can't get out of the game

You can't win
You can't win
You can't break even
Ain't the way
It's supposed to be
You'll be spendin'
Your little bit of money
While someone else ride free
Learn your lesson, refuel your mind
Before some turkey blows out your flame

It makes you wonder when they will finally get a clue, because I have been way too up close and personal with a negative reality for my tastes. And wallet. But everyone else around me is serene, those anti-depressants must be really good.

That is the perfect song for where bush is now. Sadly, he either can't comprehend or he won't.
