Song Description

Hard rock song advising a defiant attitude amid the randomness and cruelties of life. From the album 'Pop Philosophy'. Full-length version also available. Written, performed and produced by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

We are rolling the rock up a hill
To watch it roll down where it was before
Always rolling that rock up a hill
And sometimes that's hardly a metaphor

Then you stumble on a mode of resistance
That some others seem to know without thinking

The arrival at a style
Of defiance
It's a noble attitude
The appliance of a science
Of defiance

This contract, it is sometimes insufferable
And despite that you're intended to suffer it all
The outlook predictably unpredictable
For a life's work that will recede to nothing at all

Can you summon up a show of resistance
Like some others seem to do without blinking

The survival of your trials
In defiance
It's a noble attitude
The appliance of a science
Of defiance
Is the strategy to chose

To resist in the face of what's certain
May appear on the face of it worthless
But you're showing your disgust at the format
That you'll grant life some purpose despite that

I am offering this course of resistance
As the closest thing I've heard yet to wisdom

The survival of your trials
In defiance
It's a noble attitude
The appliance of a science
Of defiance
On the only path we use

You don't have to stand for this
And you don't have to take it lying down either
You don't have to stand for this
And you don't have to take it lying down either
