​The Promise Of Saturday

This song is by Abraham Cloud and appears on the album Voyage To Afghanistan (2000).

Sometimes when I can't sleep at night, I draw the shades and look outside
Rows of rooftops all exactly the same, cover people who will never change
I watch them come, and I see them go, they walk in circles and I'm sure they don't know
'Cause its ice cold beer and a Sunday drive, the promise of Saturday can keep you alive
When they lay in bed at night, everything's all right
They got a lot to do till Saturday
So far away
The promise of Saturday can keep you in line
I tried, but I couldn't decide, what kind of compromise Id make to survive
So many people window-shop for a vacation, wind up spending all their time stuck in hesitation
When they lay in bed at night, everything's all right
They got a lot to do till Saturday
So far away
The promise of Saturday can keep you in line
Love, lust, pride, greed, fear and hate
They're all games to make you sweat, I had to wait
I wait for freedom to deliver me from games
When I'm hungry Ill eat anything
And I saw it comin' back
It was the last page of the book
The page Id never seen
The one explaining games (success in reality)
I read it everyday, practiced what it said
Still I can't wait till Saturday
