The Argonauts always intrigued me
They typified every man
Happy unless something popped up
That wasn't part of the plan

But there'd been a pretension of plans from the start
So why did they go? Were they stupid and slow?
They were so cocky and sure at the start of the show

But when the sails hung flat and the Argus just sat
All the rocks came crashin' and the water ran low
When Hercules split and Jason admitted
That he didn't know where to go he said....

You can whine until your mouth dries up
You can hang your head and wonder why
You can die, or you can stand upright
And never go down again.

Sisyphus always intrigued me
He never decided to stop
The point of it lay in the trying
And not in attaining the top

Granted he didn't have much of a choice
But neither do you, and neither do I,
And neither do you, and neither do I

But even Mister Moneybags on the hill
Never stopped pushing and he never quite will
We're not just here to see how hard we try
But the way we try and it ain't no lie...


Let's go!

So I'm makin' up songs in my head to
The cadence of seams in the road
Most of 'em suck, it kills time though, we've got
A freakin' long way to go

But our hearts are strong and our minds intact
And we're never gonna stop and that's a big fat fact
And my baggage on the bus and there's money in my pocket so
Everybody sing along with me...

    General CommentArgonauts and Sysyphus are both existential references to Camus. It's about existentialism. How we cannot escape our past, but my choosing to embraze it we can have a measure of freedom.
