about

The thirteenth of thirteen songs on my Concept Album, "Albion Moonlight and the Sea of Troubles". (26)

lyrics

Albion is a precious being, prescient and prone to seeing
everybody’s deepest inner fears.
sometimes he gets too tired to take it, swallows anything to make it easier to live through all the tears… and nervous laughter.

born to love the fountain pen, ridiculed by other men,
turns his anger all onto himself, with deadly skill.
and though he knows no true escape can come from any grain or grape,
he can’t resist the potions we distill,
it’s like trying to roll a millstone up a hill,
it’s like trying to roll a millstone up a hill....

at twenty, with his brave ambition, set upon his chosen mission;
writing down in stories all he saw.
loving people, so completely, finding girls who’d so discretely
monitor his drink, ‘til he’d withdraw into his own time.

for seven years he struggled there, preparing his electric chair
and all of these distractions only kept him standing still.
how his spirit needed motion, lost inside a mindless ocean,
floating on a wilting daffodil,
it’s like trying to roll a millstone up a hill,
it's like trying to roll a millstone up a hill...

now the boy is nearing thirty, trying to cleanse himself of dirty
habits, that don’t do the spirit good. asks himself the constant question; ”am i going this direction because i want to, or because i should?”, and that’s hard to answer.

wondering how long he’ll last, ‘til he just repeats his past,
believing he has nothing if he doesn’t have free will.
and though the weight may break his back, for now the lone insomniac
tries to resist those things that make him ill, make him ill,
it’s like trying to roll a millstone up a hill,
it’s like trying to roll a millstone up a hill, up a hill, yeah...
