Sisyphus – Andrew Bird (Breaks Down His Song, Sisyphus)

"Most of us have long ago lost our bodies. It seems, in fact, that 'I' am almost sitting on my body as if I was a horseman riding on a horse. I am my head, but I own my body. The body is reduced from self to property, something which is mine, but not me. Man will not live with his body, for that is corruptible, and thus he lives only as his ego, a picture of himself to himself, and a picture that leaves out any true reference to death. Ultimately, the body is avoided because it is the abode of death. " 
– Ken Wilber, No Boundary
Literature:
The Fox and the Grapes (Aesop), 
The Raven (poem by Edgar Allen Poe)
But the Raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing farther then he uttered–not a feather then he fluttered–
Till I scarcely more than muttered "Other friends have flown before–
On the morrow he will leave me, as my Hopes have flown before."
Then the bird said "Nevermore."
