"Heard the World" as written by and Marc Andrew Roberge Jerry Harrison....
I just heard the world
Is breaking down into bits again
Tell me, what am I to do?
You just want me to stay here
So I'm just going to stay

The home, our last resort
I built a castle with an iron door
Lock the window, pull the shades
The hazed out sun won't help anyway

If the world is crumbling down
I don't want to be alone, no
Locked up in this place

I heard the world up late night
Holding my breath tight
Trying to keep my head on right
There's a chill in the air
Nobody could care how you're
Caught up in the fight of your life

Fear is bringing me here
The television got me seeing unclear
Bravery my neighbor, moved away
'Cause I don't need to be courageous today

And If that world is crumbling down
I don't want to be alone, no
Locked up in this place

When I heard the world up late night
Holding my breath tight
Trying to keep my head on right
There's a chill in the air
Nobody could care how you're
Caught up in the fight of your life

I heard the world up late night
Holding my breath tight
Trying to keep my head on right
There's a chill in the air
Nobody could care how you're
Caught up in the fight of your life

Nothing's gonna save me
I'm hanging from the nearest tree
Nothing's gonna save me
I'm hanging from the nearest tree

When I heard the world up late night
Holding my breath tight
Trying to keep my head on right
There's a chill in the air
Nobody could care how you're
Caught up in the fight of your life

I heard the world up late night
Holding my breath tight
Trying to keep my head on right
There's a chill in the air
Nobody could care how we're
Caught up in the fight of your life

When I heard the world of late night
See I'm holding breath tight
I'm trying to keep my head on right
There's a chill in the air
Nobody could care how we're
We're caught up in the fight of our lives

I heard the world of late night
Holding my breath tight
Trying to keep my head on right
There's a chill in the air
Nobody could care
We're caught up in the fight of our lives

    General CommentThe music for this song is intense. I love the beat and the guitar and the way he sings it. Everything is perfect. I don't know why more people haven't commented.

    For me it reminds me of those times you are flooded with memories at night right before you go to bed. Finally when you lay down to rest after a hectic day and you can't get away from the things that plague you during the day. Every problems is magnified because it's preventing you from the very peace you long for all day. I heard the world up, late night...

    General CommentTo me this is all about the world around you over baring you to the point were you can do nothing but collapse under the weight. You do everything you can to try and save yourself from yourself but you just can't.

    Personally i think this a great song to listen to after your girlfriend breaks up with ya... haha...

    General CommentThis song reminds me alot of September 11th because I almost lost my dad. This also has a lot to do with the apocaplse and the world bearing down.

    General CommentThis song to me seems to talk about a horrible ordeal someone may be going through in their life. And you feel as though no one can be their for you, regardless of what may happen..."Nobody could care, how you're caught up in the fight of your life." Trying to stay focused on whats important but the one thing will not leave your mind.
