it makes no difference to me
if i die in my sleep tonight
i'm sick to the bone
and longing for home
my blood runs white
and i didn't want anyone
and i didn't want anyone
to be hurt by my words
if there's pain in hell, i'm feeling it today
wishing i were seven in a children's heaven
how heavy the world weighs
how heavy the world weighs
how heavy the world weighs
how heavy the world weighs
ghosts don't cry
and the dead don't die
they walk hand in hand
as if partners in crime
partners in crime
i fall
on and on and on down
i fall
on and on and on down
i'm falling down
on and on and on down
i fall
on and on and on down
the world could feed you love
but it's me you've come to despise
like a head on a plate of purity
playing judas iscariot
in the hands of sanctity
how heavy the world weighs
how heavy the world weighs
when one must carry the world
i fall
on and on and on down
i fall
on and on and on down
i'm falling down
on and on and on down
i'm falling down
on and on
i fall down
i fall down
when you're not around
i fall
on and on and on down
i fall down
on and on and on
on and on and on
on and on and on down
i fall down
i fall down
how heavy the world weighs
how heavy the world weighs

    General CommentWell, this is a stab in the dark, but I'm going to say this is Billy's sort of plea for forgiveness for all of the things he's said about his band mates and friends. The lines "partners in crime" and "playing judas iscariot" sort of back that one up I think. I've never heard this song though, where could I find it?

    General CommentI found it on Projectplaylist.com. It's got an almost Billy Idol feel to it.

    General Commentthis is a great song, i think it's a shame it was never commercially released in any form. I got an mp3 from rspaa.org (reborn smashing pumpkins audio archive).

    General Commenturgh! i just found out something horrible! there's now some site using the same address (rspaa) which has porn, do NOT type that address in. sorry if the previous comment got your hopes up. i was shocked and disgusted when that came up on google. that's probably why the smashing pumpkins audio archive seems to be inaccessible now. i feel disgusted about this.

    General CommentI know what you mean Wiggy52, I found that out a couple of months ago. It's a shame one of the best SP audio archive sites has disappeared.

    As for the meaning of the song I think it's pretty obvious. It's just a song of pure depression, when you feel the whole world is against you and you can't get out.
