Some saw the sun
Some saw the smoke
Some heard the gun
Some bent the bow

Sometimes the wire
Must tense for the note
Caught in the fire, say oh
We're about to explode

Carry your world
I'll carry your world
Carry your world
I'll carry your world

Some far away
Some search for gold
Some dragon to slay
Heaven we hope
Is just up the road
Show me the way, Lord
'Cause I am about to explode

Carry your world
I'll carry your world
Carry your world
I'll carry your world
Carry your world (Carry your world)
And all your hurt

Carry your world
Carry your world

    General CommentI was asked the other day by a friend of mine why the song was entitled Atlas if the word is never mentioned in the song. The answer is simple, however this is a good question if you're not a mythology buff, so I thought I'd share it. The line "I'll carry your world" is the key to the title. In Greek mythology, the titan, Atlas, holds up the sky, or carries the world if you will. So, in a clever reference to the titan in Greek mythology, the song was named Atlas.
