lyrics

sisyphus had all of this
a heart, a head, a stone
a kiss, a cry, a last goodbye
a hunger for his thorn
it's been a long time
who knows how long?

it goes so
s l o w

murder, blunder,
blood and thunder
punishment and reward
making sense of consequence
only leaves him bored
it's been a long time
can he take much more?

what if this is all there is?
deep, dependable strife?
what if this is happiness?
is it less of a life?

always steep
never quite complete
a journey without end
there's only time
and chafe and grime
it rolls back down again
it's been a long time
do I see him grin?
