"A Heavy Burden" as written by Jeppe Christensen, Lars Christensen, Morten Toft Hansen, Jesper Tilsted, Jesper Meinby Kvist, Kasper Thomsen and Lars Vognstrup....
You know it turns me on to see
The way you look at me
With your eyes that dance on the pale white moon
Would you even think about leaving so soon?
And there she hits you within your eye
You know all is lost and about to die
Then she turns her head with a beautiful smile
And talks for a while with that?

Fateful severed spitful boy
Deep away in the heart of joy
Talks like crazy, talks to the sea
The sea is what you see in me.

Track to the city filth that lies below
When I?m with you the street are fields where flowers grow
You look pretty in every stitch you?re in
I?m a little boy I?m in love with you in ways they?ll never try.
Set sails for the future head on into the night
Set sails for the future head on into the night

You give yourself the red carpet grave
The last of the lost was hereby saved
With the serpent tongue and a hot plated heart
She turned back to the story from the start
And there she goes all dressed in style
All is won within all that dies
Then she turns her head with a beautiful smile
And talks for a while with that?

Deadly severed spiteful tongue
Sweep away the heart with songs
Run like crazy, run to the sea
The sea is what you see in me.

Track to the city filth that lies below
When I?m with you the street are fields where flowers grow
You look preaty in every stitch you?re in
I?m a little boy I?m in love with you in ways they?ll never try.
Set sails for the future head on into the night
Set sails for the future head on into the night

A rose dressed in thorns
Yet your touch is just a feeble plot
A rose dressed in thorns
A black kingdom between mountains of lust
Yet your touch is just a feeble plot
Kick up a fire and watch them explode

Track to the city filth that lies below
When I?m with you the street are fields where flowers grow
You look preaty in every stitch you?re in
I?m a little boy I?m in love with you in ways they?ll never try.
Set sails for the future head on into the night
Set sails for the future head on into the night

    General Commentanother GREAT Raunchy song partially ruined by crappy lyrics. the music and vocals are awesome but the words are just ok... the melodic chorus is amazing.

    My InterpretationGreat song, but I can see that a lot of the lyrics are confusing.

    The way I see it, it's about being in the friend zone, basically. While you have these strong feelings for her, she talks excitedly (Deep in the heart of joy, Talks like crazy) with some "severed spiteful boy." You see he's flat and boring (talks to the sea, which is empty and just nothingness), but that's all she sees in you.

    The chorus is great, and self-explanatory.

    Eventually she moves on from this guy, presumably after taking what she can from him, and you realize she's a maneater. Now you see how she works, with her "Deadly severed spiteful tongue," and the rest of the song just makes sense... you see how she really is, but you can't help but feel the same way you did before, whether it's lust or really love.

    Alternatively, you could be the "hateful, severed, spiteful boy," and it's about this girl that basically chewed you up and spit you out.
