Under The Weight Of The World

Under the weight of the world; I press,

Under the hands of authority; I bend,

Under the laws of humanity; I dress,

Under the disparity of the poor; I lend,


Against the walls of a nation; I stay,

Against the face of the earth; I kneel,

Against the winds of change; I fray,

Against the dead of the night; I reel,


Upon the ledge of a suicide; I hang,

Upon the notion of an end; I cry,

Upon the thought to decide; I sprang,

Upon the notes of memories; I fly,


Within the gravity of a fall, I give,

Within the depravity of love; I live.
