"Weight of the World" as written by and Colin Meloy....
Monday fell hard like the weight the world,
Weighing down my shoulders
Tuesday why do you stay so late this I can't abide

So I stand in line so I wait in line
Everyone must honor their own anodyne
So I hang around
So I hang around
And now we hear the homeless philharmonic singin'
All of Charlie's Angels to their heavenly convergence in the sky

You and me come on let's hitch a ride

Paint me confused on a carnival cruise
This tortured ambulance chaser

But I'm cured
I got two feet on the floor
I guess that's all I need

So I stand in line so I wait in line
Everyone must honor their own anodyne
So I hang around
So I hang around
And now we hear the homeless philharmonic singin'
All of Charlie's Angels to their heavenly convergence in the sky

I must confide (I must confide)
I'm fit to be homeward rolling
A tune, beneath the wayward moon
Singin' me to sleep

And as the weekend's ending
With the weekdays pending
Having trouble comprehending...
how I'll make it through

So I stand in line so I wait in line
Everyone must honor their own anodyne
So I hang around
So I hang around
And now we hear the homeless philharmonic singin'
All of Charlie's Angels to their heavenly convergence in the sky

Suck it down we're all gonna hitch a ride

Monday fell hard like the weight of the world
Weighing down my shoulders....

    General CommentIt is about drinking on a Sunday night and going to work the next day. Look at the lyrics it's obvious.

    General CommentI think its about someone trying to maintain a weekend alcohol addiction. Standing in line at the liquor store with all the homeless drunks... just to get a weekend's worth of booze. Then going cold turkey through the week, which seems to draw on by Tuesday.
