Heavyweight

  • I'm looking for a sign that I can't see
    The good the bad is somewhere in between
    These warning signs, and the servant grinds, me down
    The kids are building fires by their homes
    The smoke is sending signals out in code
    These safety suits, these parachutes
    I don't know

    Gotta stop, drop, roll

    When all these walls come down
    They'll shake us
    We fight not to be, not to be weightless
    Oh when all these stars hit ground
    They'll wake us
    We fight not to be, not to be weightless

    I'm choking on the words that I cant say
    My lungs are full but everything's misplaced
    And these junkyard dogs, these cherry bombs, go off
    The sun, the sky, the moon will fall apart
    Come tumbling down just like a house of cards
    These fire escapes, and this lush landscape, it fades

    When all these walls come down
    They'll shake us
    We fight not to be, not to be weightless
    Oh when all these stars hit ground
    They'll wake us
    We fight not to be, not to be weightless
    Weightless

    I can feel this heavyweight hanging around my neck
    I can feel your heartbeat bringing me back
    Back again

    When all these walls come down
    They'll shake us
    We fight not to be, not to be weightless
    Oh when all these stars hit ground
    They'll wake us
    We fight not to be, not to be weightless
    Be weightless
