As our world oscillates to shake the weak remains
Show your strength, resist all temptation
To follow illusions expressed with safety
Open up your wings, and fly to sanctuary

Trying to dislocate from talk and scoff
That shows them what they are
Murderous words might as well been sent by a bullet
Keep your eyes closed and your fingers crossed
Till our paths meet, I'll try to lead the way

Take me back to who I was back then
I'll show you what life means to me again
Maybe in due time, you'll let me in
I'll lift the weight so you don't have to fall

Brother, when every muscle strains
I will lift the weight for you
Sister, if you just call my name
I will lift the weight for you

You can't find the strength, your eyes lose resistance
I will lift the weight for you

I wasn't there for the darkest of hallways
The longest of paths
A crazy train going off the tracks

Catch my fall when the earth shakes
Catch my fall when the earth shakes

Take me back to who I was back then
An honest man and a faithful friend
I'll show you what life means to me again
Maybe in due time, you'll let me in

Take me back to who I was back then
An honest man and a faithful friend
I'll show you what life means to me again
Maybe in due time, you'll let me in
'Cause there is so much left to amend

Brother, when every muscle strains
I will lift the weight for you
Sister, if you just call my name
I will lift the weight for you

You can't find the strength, your eyes lose resistance
I will lift the weight for you
I know that we've changed but this remains consistent
I will lift the weight for you

We pick at the scab, it bleeds and it bleeds
Extending the healing to keep us contained
A weak doppelgänger, the bastard one
I'll leave you behind and continue on
