Weight of the World

from by Days of Light



The words had their time
Yet never anything was said
Nothing was implied
But I took it all to the heart

And now I have gone beyond my years
Road-worn, collecting centuries worth dust
And nothing came from all the ideas
Aspiration - A flower never watered
The flashes of a life that may could've been
Don't really hurt, no more - but are added to the pile
Of the burdens one chose to carry, all by themselves

Weight of the world forcing down the shoulders
Oh how glad I was to shake off from mine
Step by step for you the road grows longer
I can't carry even a handful of pride
And you have gone pushing on the boulders
Over even the rockiest of hills
Doesn't look much but from where I stand
Nothing ever will...

Weight of the world

You know I never wanted to pay the price
Never to accept that time flows on
And whe I loved I loved like a fiend
Feeding on emotion until the vein was dry
Never to - like you would - to built it stronger
Lay foundations designed to take the blows
To withstand in jaws of entropy
Carry the weight of the world
