Complicate this world you wrapped for me I'm acquainted with your suffering
And all your weight It falls on me It brings me down And all your weight It falls on me It falls on me
Hold me up to all whom you've deceived Promises you break you still believe

Mike from Lexington, ScBeing an accomplished guitar player I have to say that learning this song correctly was tricky and to really get the vibe of the song correctly it requires three guitars doing different things. That's what I like about Collective Soul is the instrument arrangements and Ed Roland isn't a rookie in that department either. He studied musical arrangements at Berkley. He knows what he's doing and it shows. Another great band from the great state of GA.
Zero from Nowhere, NjI'm pretty sure this song is directed at someone with a lot of emotional baggage and he/she makes it the burdon of the singer. If I'm right I can relate, I know people like that.
Ryan from Anahola, HiWhat is this song about?
Kayla from Oklahoma City, OkI think this is Collective Soul's best song...
Nathan from Sherwood, OrI think collective soul should be getting way more recognition than they are getting right now. My favorite song is run and just like all their other songs on the dosage album, it brings back awesome memories of when i was littler and my 4 brothers would blast collective soul on their stereos
Lalah from Wasilla, AkThe beginning guitar rift deserves to be as recognizable as the beginning of "Spirit In The Sky". This is a great song for when I'm angry. I put it on loud enough to shake the windows then do housework. By the time I'm done, I have a cleaner house and I'm not mad anymore. well, not as angry. What an awesome band. This is just te tip of their body of work.
Tom from Hershey, PaMore Collective Soul PLEASE on songfacts!! What a great Band!
Dana from Biloxi, MsI never paid much attention to this band until I saw them perform this live at the "Last" woodstock. I quickly became a beleiver and now have multiple copies of their stuff around the house,car etc..
Dani from Boston, MaThis has a great use of the guitar, I just love listening to the opening over and over again!
Jacob from Houston, Tx"Heavy" is my favor. song by Collective Soul their awesome.
Movie director Michel Gondry played live drums on the Late Registration track, "Diamonds From Sierra Leone." The Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind filmmaker happened to be in the studio on a day when producer Jon Brion was setting up a drum kit
"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
