Weight of the World [Live]
by Blue October



I black out in the room again
A busted lip and broken skin
I wake up in the bathroom
And dare not bother asking
Why the mirror is cracked
And all I see are shards of glass inside of me
There’s voices there that dare me
My fathers here to scare me
My mother sits beyond the door
She’s curled up crying on the floor
Look at what her sons done
When the weight of all the worlds gone wrong
It’s gone wrong again
Gone fucking wrong
It’s gone wrong again
Well liars they leave a guilty trail
Let me tell you something people
I’ve been lying for fucking years
That must be why I’m standing in this space
Disregarding that I’ve created these monsters
That are on fucking both of my sides
So I wipe the blood from both of their eyes
From all four of their eyes
And while I wait for wounds to heal
I see you by the window seal
Your hearts torn out a plastic spoon
When honesty that up that room
So I stool the pillow case to clean
This mess I’ve made from someone’s dream
Now you see what I’ve done
When the weight of the worlds gone wrong
It’s gone wrong again
Gone fucking wrong
It’s gone all wrong again
This room is old and wise
I fall onto the bed and wonder
How did I get here?
The little boy who’d argue with a tree
Just fucking dumb as hell
He’ll turn back to normal
Now why is that what I see?
Don’t bother trusting
Don’t bother waiting
Don’t bother changing things that won’t give into changing
Just let me go away
I’m packed whenever,
I’m down whenever
