"Weight of the World" as written by and Justin Furstenfeld....
A blackout in the room again
A busted lip and broken skin.
I wake up in the bathroom
And dare not bother asking
Why the mirror's cracked and all I see
Are shards of glass inside of me.

There's voices there to dare me,
My father's here to scare me.
My mother sits beyond the door she's
Curled up crying on the floor,
Look at what her son's done.

When the weight of all the world's gone wrong.
It's gone wrong again.
Gone fucking wrong.
It's gone wrong again.

Well liars they leave a guilty trail.
And let me tell you something people,
I've been lying for fucking years.
That must be why I'm standing in this space.
Disregarding that I've created these monsters
They're on fucking both of my sides,
So I wipe the blood from both of their eyes.
From all four of their eyes.

And while I wait for wounds to heal
I see you by the window sill,
Your heart's torn out
A plastic spoon
When honesty lit up that room
So I stole the pillowcase to clean
This mess I've made of someones dream.
Now you've seen what I've done,

when the weight of all the world's gone wrong.
It's gone wrong again
Gone fucking wrong
It's gone all wrong again.

This room is old and wise
I fall onto the bed and wonder,
"How did I get here?"
The little boy who would argue with a tree
Just fucking thump his head
And he'll turn back to normal.

Now why is that what I see?
Don't bother trusting
Don't bother waiting
Don't bother changing things that won't give into changing
Just let me go away.
I'm packed
Whenever
I'm down
Whenever.

    General CommentThis song is about Justin's drug addiction and the pain/pressure on him and his deteriorating relationships with his family.

    "A blackout in the room again
    a busted lip and broken skin.
    I wake up in the bathroom
    and dare not bother asking
    why the mirror's craked and all I see
    are shards of glass inside of me."

    If you like blue october, put down (or throw away) your copy of foiled and pick up the answers or consent to treatment and see what you're missing out on.

    General Commenti have no idea what this song means. I love it still. The only thing i can think of is that theres so much pressure on him and one day it becomes to much and he breaks. seems like he took some drugs thats why hes in the bathroom with a broken mirror or he got into a fight with his dad and he got knocked out. I dont know help me out here.

    General CommentI've never heard a song quite like this one. I think it's about someone who can't live up to the expectations his family and friends have set for him. He can't be the perrson that everyone wants him to be and he hates himself for it and wants to be left alone.

    General CommentOk, I can see what you're getting at, but I think it goes a bit deeper than that. Justin is Bipolar, and I rememebr reading somewhere he never writes anythign that hasn't happend to him. My guess is, that this is about him loosing control, passing out, (Disregarding that I've created these monsters) He can't run from it, because it's in him.. It is him. (when honesty lit up that room
    so I stole the pillowcase to clean
    this mess I've made of someones dream.)
    Honesty hurts because it's not pretty, far from it. He thinks he's ruined the dreams of his mother etc, and blah blah blah, that's my idea.
