till I push this boulder up this rocky hill
If I lose my footing this rock will kill
Perpetual dusk has me dimly lit
So I can't see the top or know how far is it

Now life is a constant & death is a beast
And every time it's been fed its presence increased
I feel its wings & its eyes bore my neck
And this pressure has turned me into a wreck

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

It's a cold & a hollow & a lonely life
I've seen anguish & anger, fear & strife
Now, the darkness comes & it takes my pride
But, I've learned to take the darkness in my stride

I felt its teeth pierce through my neck & back
I felt my skin rip & heard my bones crack
And if I have strength left we'll soon see
For the shadow of life has eaten me

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Comfort & security leave stride by stride
If I could see someway out I'd throw away my pride
But I can't go back & my death lies ahead
But the end of this life fills me with dread

Still I push this boulder up this rocky hill
If I lose my footing this rock will kill
Perpetual dusk has me dimly lit
So I can't see the top or know how far is it

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
