Sometimes things seem pointless, but maybe the point becomes clear later...

Once again
I go through the motions;
and I let them cling
to their hard-won notions.
That somehow,
through lack of understanding,
I am compelled to do
all that they’re commanding.

And just now
I hear them calling
and I must go.
Sometimes I see
how far I’ve fallen;
sometimes I wish I didn’t know.

With some games of chance,
though I hate to say it;
what matters more is not the hand,
but how you play it.
Still, I fail to see,
how one of my position,
should find themselves reduced
to this position.


What I know now
I can’t begin to tell you,
but I know it’s okay;
What I’ve found out is that
I’m only here
to give it all away.

I roll away the stone
and I look up at that hill;
and I see once again
I’m at the bottom,
the look upon
some of their faces
for a moment
all but replaces
my regret.

Existentialist hero
One of the most influential books of my youth was "The Myth of Sisyphus and other essays" by Albert Camus. I loved the almost musical theatre baritone vocals, the bravado and big chested certainty of your style even in the face of knowing, not knowing and never being able to know. An existential hero's voice. Like a souther rock Les Miz. Roll away the stone also has this new testament biblical meaning, which works with your concept. Your vocals are often a hair below pitch, and I wish you could come down to a note instead of strain to reach up to it, every now and then. But it didn't get in the way of my pleasure listening to this. Thanks for sharing it.

i see you've been tobin mullered. baptism of fire. you've got a great voice...have you had musical theatre training? sounds like it. this is a good track...although i'd fill it out with more stuff and get it mixed so that everything gels together more. but a good anthemic sound. welcome to MJ.
