Either Take Control, or Shut Up and Enjoy the Ride

Nietzschean Will to Power through the Eyes of Absurdism:
Absurdism through Nietzsche's Eyes:
And now I will tell a fable for princes who themselves understand. Thus said the hawk to the nightingale with speckled neck, while he carried her high up among the clouds, gripped fast in his talons, and she, pierced by his crooked talons, cried pitifully. To her he spoke disdainfully: `Miserable thing, why do you cry out? One far stronger than you now holds you fast, and you must go wherever I take you, songstress as you are. And if I please I will make my meal of you, or let you go. He is a fool who tries to withstand the stronger, for he does not get the mastery and suffers pain besides his shame.' So said the swiftly flying hawk, the long- winged bird. --Hesiod, "Works and Days"

Nobody listens to music in order to reach the end of the song.

"Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm." -- Sir Winston Churchill
