lyrics

We Dasein are all nonplussed
that we are all like Sysiphus
To us the meaning comes in strong
though meaningless at best
A florid torrid diamond
forged in fire by your waking life
and though the world is rife with pain
you cast a furtive glance
towards the meaning you would
hope to achieve
Hold those cards inside your sleeve my friend
don't show

You can paint yourself
and let the others paint you too
for all the worth we have accomplished
there are still great things to do so
roll your rock up on the hillside
just as far as you can go
and as your lungs pull in from pushing
you'll look back on those below
and see the meaning you had
hoped to achieve
pull those cards out of your sleeve my friend
and show
