Weight of the World ------Blue October Submitted by whatiaminstead A quick note: The Bm in the chorus may be A's, you'll have to try it and let me know. A A blackout in the room again. Bm A busted lip and broken skin. A I wake up in the bathroom And dare not bother asking Bm Why the mirror's cracked and all I see Are shards of glass inside of me. A There's voices there to dare me, Bm My father's here to scare me. A My mother sits beyond the door She's curled up crying on the floor, Bm Look at what her son's done. A E When the weight of all the world's gone wrong. Bm It's gone wrong again. A E Gone so wrong. Bm It's gone wrong again. A Well liars they leave a guilty trail. And let me tell you something people, Bm I've been lying all these years. A Bm That must be why I'm standing in this space. A Disregarding that I've created these monsters Bm They sit at both of my sides, A So I wipe the blood from both of their eyes. Bm From all four of their eyes. A And while I wait for wounds to heal I see you by the window sill, Bm Your heart's torn out A plastic spoon When honesty lit up that room A So I stole the pillowcase to clean This mess I've made of someone’s dream. Bm Now you've seen what I've done, A E When the weight of all the world's gone wrong. Bm It's gone wrong again A E Gone so wrong Bm It’s gone all wrong again. A This room is old and wise I fall onto the bed and wonder, Bm "How did I get here?" A The little boy who would argue with a tree Just go and thump his head! Bm And he'll turn back to normal. Now why is that what I see? A Don't bother trusting E Don’t bother waiting Bm Don’t bother changing things that won't give into changing A E Just let me go away. I'm packed Bm Whenever I'm down A Whenever. Let's go. Yes, let's go.
