Since we first come out walking, looking for a way back in
From this crazy world where we're blowing like leaves in the wind
Just tryin' to make sense of this life any way that we can
And foolin' ourselves with the ways of man

We can do what we want to
We can burn at both ends
We can go half crazy
Like we got no sense
And it's a desperate feeling
Just to hold it all in
The weight of the world
And the ways of man

Well we thirst and we hunger and we love and we comfort now and then
But we fight over money and power like water and bread
Oh but it's simple the reason we're turning our backs on our friends
'Cause this brotherly love is such a hard thing to get through our heads

We can do what we want to
We can burn at both ends
We can go half crazy
Like we got no sense
And it's a desperate feeling
Just to hold it all in
The weight of the world
And the ways of man

We can do what we want to
We can burn at both ends
We can go half crazy
Like we got not no good sense
And it's a desperate feeling
Just to hold it all in
The weight of the world
And the ways of man
The weight of the world
And the ways of man
