Bitterness and burden
Curses rest on thee
Solitaire and sorrow
All Eternity

Save the Earth and claim perfection
Deem the mass and blame rejection
Hold the pose, reign perception
Grudges break your back

All you bear
All you carry
All you bear
Place it right on, right on me

Die as you suffer in vain
Own all the grief and the pain
Die as you hold up the skies
Atlas, Rise!

How does it feel on your own?
Bound by the world all alone
Crushed under heavy skies
Atlas, Rise!

Crucify and witness
Circling the sun
Bastardize and ruin
What have you become?

Blame the world, and blame your maker
Wish ‘em to the undertaker
Crown yourself the other savior
So you carry on

All you bear
All you carry
All you bear
Place it right on me, right on me

Die as you suffer in vain
Own all the grief and the pain
Die as you hold up the skies
Atlas, Rise!

How does it feel on your own?
Bound by the world all alone
Crushed under heavy skies
Crushed under heavy skies
Atlas, Rise!

Masquerade as maker
Heavy is the crown
Beaten down and broken
Drama wears you down

Overload, the martyr stumbles
Hit the ground and heaven crumbles
All alone, the fear shall humble
Swallow all your pride

All you bear
All you carry
All you bear
Place it right on, right on me

Die as you suffer in vain
Own all the grief and the pain
Die as you hold up the skies
Atlas, Rise!

How does it feel on your own?
Bound by the world all alone
Crushed under heavy skies
Crushed under heavy skies
Atlas, Rise!

    General CommentThis is the modernized Misery.
    First the simger reach out for the person with giving the things he know to define the person. The bitterness feeling of isolation and sadness or pain.
    The he start to face the person that the caouse of the suffering is how egocentric or narcistic that person is.
    Save the earth and claim perfection.- This is what comes from misery a person that thinks he or she can change the world, so all his or her suffering will be justefied, all his misdeeds will be forgived.
    Deem the mass and blame rejetction.- The singers blame the perosn to his or her isolation becouse never even tried to become part of the mass, and now he or she think that they were never accepted by it.
    Hold the pose, reign perception.- Mocking about that the person doesnt realise he or she flaws and dont change, but rather judge others.
    Grudes brake your back.- In that he mean your grudes towards others but im not sure.

    All you bear
    All you carry
    All you bear
    Place it right on, right on me.- Basicly want the person to realise that he is honest and speaking to he or she, so get them change.

    Die as you suffer in vain
    Own all the grief and the pain
    Die as you hold up the skies
    Atlas, Rise!.- Well that part and some later, as well the now that we are dead song is seems to be an endorsment toward suicide. If you cant change die. Ofcourse maybe its mean the diyng of this childish self-important personality so the person can drop the burden and live a life.

    How does it feel on your own?
    Bound by the world all alone
    Crushed under heavy skies
    Atlas, Rise!.- Its plane and simple, sucks to be you then change.

    Crucify and witness
    Circling the sun.- This two verse is kinda strange, becouse its mean that the person actually got attention, and
    Bastardize and ruin
    What have you become? .- it got the worst of that person. And maybe got judged by a wast majority of people. And this push that person deeper into self-destruction.

    Blame the world, and blame your maker
    Wish ‘em to the undertaker.- Plane and simple, blame others for your faults and wish'em hell.
    Crown yourself the other savior
    So you carry on.- Act like you are pure and perfect, so you become functional.

    Masquerade as maker
    Heavy is the crown.- But soon you will find out that you are not that perfect.
    Beaten down and broken
    Drama wears you down.- And when you realise it you fall in depression.

    Overload, the martyr stumbles
    Hit the ground and heaven crumbles.- But even in this you still act like a childe and overdue the suffering
    All alone, the fear shall humble
    Swallow all your pride.- Becouse the only thing that actually effect you is fear. And ofcourse swallow all you pride.

    So thats it, modern Misery.
