I figured out why I love Mason Jennings so: he reminds me of Camus. I have always passionately fixated on Camus, though not an existentialist myself as a believer. I feel closer to his sentiments now than ever. MJ brought me to tears with the last couplet of his newest CD "Boneclouds":

and even when I loose control, I will not let You go.
