Weight of the World

Nkrumah Music 0 Comments

It’s the way of the world,
It’s the ones we love that will make us do it
It’s the weight of the world
That’ll drag you down
Put your back in to it
The way of the word is violence
Let’s wait for the world in silence

It’s the way of the world,
When love grows cold,
So do all her kisses
It’s the weight of the world
An eye for an eye
Makes a deadly mistress
The way of the word is defiance
Let’s pray for the world in silence

You bite down hard
You’ve got a strong chin
They’ll knock you down
Got to have thick skin
A thin disguise
Chokes back your fear
They were born just to die here

It’s the way of the world
(It’s the way of the world)
The more you take
The more your giving to it
It’s the weight of the world
(it’s the weight of the world)
Suffocating all those
Who try to seduce it
The way of the world is violent
let’s pray for the world in silence

You bite down hard
You’ve got a strong chin
They’ll knock you down
Got to have thick skin
A thin disguise
Chokes back your fear
They were born just to die here
