"A Welcome Burden" as written by and Michael/donegan Wengren....
Shout!

Heavy! You want it heavy!
Welcome to my world, feel the weight of it grinding down
Heavy! I want it heavy!
Welcome to my world, feel the weight of it grinding down again

Gather your pathetic masses and bring them to me
To a world devoid of lie
To another time, to another place
And then the broken ones tastes my misery
Rip away her disguise and you will realize that ya find
The truth is sickening!
We don't need to change, It really
I kind of like it ugly!

Lay... it! Make... it binding! Seathing! Blinding!Screaming!

Heavy! You want it heavy!
Welcome to my world, feel the weight of it grinding down
Heavy! I want it heavy!
Welcome to my world, feel the weight of it grinding down again

Gather your psychotic masses and bring them to me
To a world devoid of sanity
Another time, & another place
And then the violent ones crave calamity
Rip away her disguise and you will realize that ya find
The truth is sickening!
We don't need to change, It really
I kind of like it ugly!

Lay... it! Make... it binding! Seathing! Blinding!Screaming!
Reow!
The race of the Mother Culture is thickening!
The rape of the Mother Culture is nearing!
The face of the Mother Culture is sickening!
The rape of a Mother is the loving I need

Bleeding now - 1! 2! 3! 4!

Bleeding now - 1! 2! 3! 4!


Heavy! You want it Heavy!
Welcome to my world, Grinding down and....
Heavy! I want it Heavy!
Feel the weight of it GRIN-DING!
Heavy!

You want it Heavy![Repeat: x 3]

    General CommentAre you sure of these lyrics?

    I could have sworn in the beginning he says

    "Welcome to my world, feel the weight of it grinding down."

    General CommentAnd another one:

    "Leave it! Make it... binding! Seathing! Blinding! Screaming!"

    I'm far from saying I'm right, but I was just wondering cause thats what it sounds like to me and I've become pretty good at distinguishing what he says.

    General CommentAs for the meaning of the song, it appears to be one of Disturbed's (very) few political commentaries; dosen't that fifth line remind anyone of the engraving on the Statue of Liberty?

    General CommentProbably the best non-album song by Disturbed. As far as I know, it is on no soundtrack. They recorded it live in the studio, but didn't put it on "The Sickness" There is footage of them in the studio playing it on the M.O.L DVD.
