lyrics

Everyday I live in bad faith
And pretend it's alright
Everyday I turn the TV on
And watch the stars from the satellites

Sometimes I read the newsprint
And watch the politicians fight
Sometimes I cash my paycheck
And watch my bills ignite

Everyday I roll my boulder up the hill
And watch it fall back down
I tell myself my work is good
So I don't feel drowned

Every night I'm looking for love
To find a woman fair
Since I learned by reading Sartre
That my head is full of air

Some nights I see them looking
Returning my stare
I'd look back at 'em from the void
But I don't think I dare

Everyday I roll my boulder up the hill
And watch it fall back down
I tell myself my work is good
So I don't feel drowned

But my mind is blank
I live in sin
There are no thoughts
Behind my grin

Your soul is mine
Your brain I stole
I need your essence to make me whole
I need your essence to make me whole

Are other people objects
Or are their spirits free
I feel a need to own them
And I want them to own me

Why was I created
Was building me easy
I'm aware I exist
But I don't want to be

Everyday I roll my boulder up the hill
And watch it fall back down
I tell myself my work is good
So I don't feel drowned

But my mind is blank
I live in sin
There are no thoughts
Behind my grin

Your soul is mine
Your brain I stole
I need your essence to make me whole
I need your essence to make me whole
