Deja Vu All Over Again

I feel like I’ve been here before
Walked thru an open door
Went outside in the pouring rain
Its deja vu all over again

Like running rats on a Möbius strip
Trapped inside an Escher pic
No start, no end, just outside in
Its pretzel logic with a shot of gin

Dreams to share
Hopes to dare
A love to give
A time to live
Each step to take
A choice to make
Its deja vu all over again

Prometheus created humans from clay
Stole the God’s fire so men could play
Chained to a rock, to shake and shiver
Each day an eagle came and ate his liver

Dreams to share
Hopes to dare
A love to give
A time to live
Each step to take
A choice to make
Its deja vu all over again

Do you ... make it happen
Do you ... watch it happen
Do you ... wonder what happened
You wake up each morning ... it begins again

There’s a maudlin tale of a narcissistic mog
Who turned a prince into a frog
That poor frog prince so wanted a kiss
He gave it all up for a moment of bliss

Dreams to share
Hopes to dare
A love to give
A time to live
Each step to take
A choice to make
Its deja vu all over again
