Defeater - Carrying Weight

[Pre-Chorus 1]
That soap box song stuck in his head

[Chorus 1]
Burdens lie in graves past by, he carries his weight
That anthem for the disenchanted rings loud in waves of grain
Heavy hearted hymns heard in slums
Fade out on those country roads, hope burning in his lungs

[Verse 1]
Days pass, weeks pass
Sleeping under sky
Days pass, weeks pass
Days turn into nights
Sleep sound, the sun's out
Sleep long, sleep well
Days pass, weeks pass
Memories come flooding back
He prays his mother's god has saved her soul

[Pre-Chorus 2]
That soap box song still in his head

[Chorus 2]
Miles lost to heat and rain, he carries his weight
That message for the misdirected rings true to this day
Heavy hearted hymns sung in fields
He stops along that country road to listen as they sing
