"Weight of the World" as written by Amy Lee and Terry Balsamo....
Feels like the weight of the world
Like God in heaven gave me a turn
Don't cling to me, I swear I can't fix you
Still in the dark, can you fix me?

Free fall, free fall, all through life

If you love me then let go of me
I won't be held down by who I used to be
She's nothing to me

Feels like the weight of the world
Like all my screaming has gone unheard
And oh, I know you don't believe in me
Safe in the dark, how can you see?

Free fall, free fall, all through life

If you love me then let go of me
I won't be held down by who I used to be

If you love me then let go of me
I won't be held down by who I was

If you love me then let go of me
I won't be held down by who I used to be

    General Commenti heard that this song is about how amy knew that people were going to judge her/the band about the new album and how it's different than fallen. 'i won't be held down by who i used to be', i.e. musicians can't keep writing the same music over and over, and as she changed as a person the way she wanted her music to sound changed too. i think the 'if you love me then let go of me' part means if you liked my past stuff get over the fact that my newer music might sound different and enjoy how my writing has grown. the weight of the world is being pressured by people's expectations to write the same type of stuff as she did before versus what she wants to write.
