Blue October Weight of the World Lyrics

Last updated: 12/02/2009 10:00:00 AM

A blackout in the room again
a busted lip and broken skin.
I wake up in the bathroom
and dare not bother asking
why the mirror's craked and all I see
are shards of glass inside of me.

There's voices there to dare me,
my father's here to scare me.
and My mother she sits beyond the door she's
curled up crying on the floor,
look at what her son's done.

When the weight of all the world's gone wrong.
wrong again.
Gone fucking wrong again.

Well liars they leave a guilty trail.
let me tell you I've been lying for years.
That must be why I'm standing in this space.
constantly over and over Im Disregarding that I've created these monsters
that are on 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 sil,
your heart's torn out
a plastic spoon
when honesty lit up that room
so I stole the pillowcase to clean
this mess I've made of someones dream.
Now you've seen what I've done,

when the weight of all the world's gone wrong again
gone fucking wrong again.

This room is old and wise
and I fall onto the bed and wonder,
"How did I get here?"
I was a little boy who would argue with a tree
go ahead thump his head
he'll turn back to normal.

Now why is that what I see?
Don't bother trusting me
don't bother waiting
don't bother changing things that won't give into changing
just let me go away.
I'm packed down whenever.
Let's go.
Let's really really go.

Lyrics shock me to the core! (and they SHOULD!) | Reviewer: Jeff | 2/15/2008

These lyrics scare the hell out of me! That is exactly what some lyrics and music should do: they should 'wake you up and slap you right in the face!'

I was led to Blue October lyrics, at this time in my life, for a reason - maybe I still have time to save my son's life. Pray for me.
