You Can’t Win

I think we need a little break. Everyone is so upset and I feel a little responsible. So how about a nice sing along… it’s been a while since we had a good one. This one is my favorite song from The Wiz, “The Crow Anthem”. So hit play on the Michael Jackson video, the lyrics are down below. Hear it, sing it, feel it! Because, “you can’t win, you can’t break even, and you can’t get out of the game…”

[Verse 1]
You can’t win, you can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game
People keep saying things are going to change
But they look just like they’re staying the same
You can’t win, get over your head
And you only have yourself to blame

[Chorus: Michael Jackson (The Crows)]
You can’t win, chile (You can’t win chile)
You can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game

[Verse 2: Michael Jackson (The Crows)]
You can’t win, the world keeps moving
And you’re standing far behind
People keep saying, things will get better
(Just to ease your state of mind)
(So you lean back)(And you smoke that smoke)
(And you drink your glass of wine)

[Chorus]
Sayin’ you can’t win, chile
You can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game

[Bridge: Michael Jackson (The Crows)]
You can’t win, you can’t win no way
If your story stays the same
(You ain’t winning) No, no
(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

[Chorus]
You can’t win, chile
You can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game

[Verse 3: Michael Jackson (The Crows)]
You can’t win, you can’t break even
Ain’t the way it’s supposed to be
(You’ll be spending) No, no, oh
(Your little bit of money)
While someone else rides for free
(Learn your lesson) Ooo
(Refuel your mind before some turkey blows out your flame)

[Outro: Michael Jackson (The Crows)]
You can’t win, chile
(No, you can’t win) [4x]

You can’t win, chile
You can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game
You can’t get out of the game
You can’t get out, woo, of the game, no, no

43

For those who have been reading since the beginning of my “Red & Black” (located to the right in “My Stuff) you might remember my first post there. It was called 42. I explained the inside joke that any fellow hitchhiker did not need explanation for, that 42 is the meaning of life. I explained that I was 42 years old and talked about my hopes for the “red & black”.  Now almost a year later the “Red & Black” blog is done and my experiences on the internet has led me to where this blog now sits.

I’m not gonna rehash once again ALL the different sites, blogs, social medias, etc. that I blogged about last year. Between my LISK Blog and the “Red & Black” I covered quite a bit of people and subjects and yet they were all tied together by several different ideas.  There is some messed up stuff going on out there. Some who read this new blog may feel I have digressed. “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em”, right? I don’t know, it could be more like , “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, then beat ’em”.

There’s still wisdom there on the “Red & Black” between 42 and Seasons Change if you’re searching for some. Hell, there’s still plenty of wisdom here if you really look for it. But remember “True wisdom is in knowing you know nothing”.

But I wouldn’t read too much into the change in my blogs. Things change. After all I’m no longer 42.
