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 it is

Now life is a constant and death is a beast
Everytime it's been fed its presence's increased
I feel its wings and its eyes bore my neck
This pressure has turned me into a wreck

Ooh x 4

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

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

Ooh 4x

Well now comfort and security leave stride by stride
If I could see some way out I'd thow away my pride
But I can't go back and my death lies ahead
And the end of this life feels 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 it is
