KING SISYPHUS
(written 2014/recorded 2014)
contains a quotation from a piano sonata in c minor, D 958
by Franz Schubert/1797-1828



i am king sisyphus
and it was my hubristic belief
that my cleverness
surpassed that of zeus himself
thus as punishment
for my trickery
i was made to roll an immense boulder
up a steep hill

before i could reach the top
the massive stone
would always roll back down
forcing me to begin again
to begin again
to begin again
i have been consigned
to an eternety of
useless efforts and
unending frustration

do you know how i feel
when that thing slips away
do you know the
eternal return of the same and the same

this is king sisyphus
calling you from a meaningful past
and i can hear you assuming
he's saying a lot
while he's saying nothing at all
but i can watch you from here
as you're rolling your boulder
up that steep hill

just do you know how i feel
when that thing slips away
do you know the
eternal return of the same and the same
