"Weight of the World" as written by and Patrick J Grossi....
There’s a beat, in the street and he’s calling your name
Try and run, try and hide, but there’s no one left inside
But sometimes, it’s a lonely one
But in your eyes, I feel the weight of the world

There’s a queen on a scene, and she’s calling your name
You can run, you can hide, but you probably won’t survive
So you reach and you clutch to the things you can remember
Of the scent or the touch of the one you miss so much
But sometimes, it’s a lonely one
But in your eyes, I feel the weight of the world
Feel the weight of the world.
I feel the weight of the world
Sometimes, it’s a lonely one
I feel the weight of the world

    General Commentunless i'm mistaken, it's "there's a thief, in the street..." seems to make more sense.

    General CommentThis song is awesome. He sounds just like Ian Curtis. I think this song is what Joy Division would sound like if Ian lasted until 1983 or so.

    General Comment"Weight of the World" is about general loneliness. The second verse could specify long distance relationships. The world is a cold place to the naive.
