stop wait a minute, get em get em
pull that weight from in em, drop that cynicism
take the weight off, take that weight off
take the weight off, take that weight off

you’re so cynical
thought you’d play a pivotal role
but instead you insist on digging that hole
now your soul just aches
your body wakes
taking all the weight
voice shaking like a shoddy tape
you use that crutch to hold you up
to hold you down
but I’ve seen that stroll around
you ain’t breaking no new ground
just hanging onto old luggage
digging for a gold nugget
if you missed the subject
hold up, let me slow it down
I wake up to staying positive
in the face of all that could point me opposite
honesty and openness the policy
yeah, there’s work to do
lay aside all that that is hurting you
one, two, maybe you don’t get this,
maybe you don’t listen no way no how
insistent on digging your own way out
well grab your shovel then, boy

stop wait a minute, get em get em
pull that weight from in em, drop that cynicism
take the weight off, take that weight off
take the weight off, take that weight off

the biggest struggle learning how to unbuckle that muzzle
drop that burden, stay hungry stay humble
jump that rope before it grabs you by the throat
makes you choke
now you know you’re in trouble
when your troubles make you crumble
too much weight in the jungle make you stumble
it’s a long road better learn to rock the uphill
and all these heavy things are weighing down
your everything
but how much weight you trying to bring on you when the levee springs
but you’d rather bleed than plead for help
better watch what you say
because evil things will feed inside the veldt
you can get it if you get it right, I mean
I dropped the load and left the weight
right behind me

stop wait a minute, get em get em
pull that weight from in em, drop that cynicism
take the weight off, take that weight off
take the weight off, take that weight off
