  • Repeated in the chorus is "Sisyphus." According to Greek legend, Sisyphus was a king of Corinth who was condemned to forever roll a huge stone uphill that always rolled down again. >>

  • John from Asheville, NcThis song falls into that category of "certainly not bad" but "hardly memorable." It's definitely vanilla fare from Rush. Not that they always have to be dynamic...(Bravado, The Pass, etc.)...but there needs to be something going on. The odd time signature in the chorus is probably the coolest element of the song.
  • Jesse from L.a., CaI've learned to like this song over the years!!! Great work from the band. Love the vocals, GED!
