    General CommentThis is song is so strange. It reminds me of being home alone on a stormy night, when things around you come alive...

    General CommentThis song is about Sysyphus, a man in the underworld condemned to roll a boulder up a hill for all eternity. Every time the boulder reaches the top, it rolls back down.

    The music to part one represents Sysyphus beginning to roll the ball up the hill. This music is returned to in part four, signifying that he has to start all over again.

    General Commentits a sad song about a guy who masterbates while driving his trucks, he sees all his ex wifes while doing this and then he rolls a turd up a hill and everytime he gets to the top he farts and lets another turd out which rolls to the bottom and he starts again - or so I heard

    General CommentPart 1 is just one part looped over and over again which supports the Greek myth of Sisyphus (tiny spelling difference).

    General CommentBut surely the spelling difference must exist for a reason? Maybe?
