Carry the Weight of Love

Politicians fighting since I don’t know when,
Say the same thing over and over again.
They identify another enemy,
Tell of danger hiding behind every tree.

These important people say we must be good,
On the straight and narrow as they know we should;
But the rules they make are the same they break:
The head of a man hides the tongue of a snake.

Carry the weight of love
Everywhere you go.
Carry the weight of love.
Let the people know:
You cannot make your father’s dream come true.
You cannot save the generations after you.
Your brother and your sister need you now.
Their faces and their fears will show you how
To carry the weight of love.
Carry the weight of love.

We’ve built grand cities for many centuries,
But we also build the penitentiaries:
Locking people out and locking people in,
Like the jungle outcasts we have always been.

Carry the weight of love.

Oh, my bones may break when the battle comes,
And my friends forsake me for fanatic drums;
But I only live until the day I die,
When my spirit lifts me up to the sky.

Carry the weight of love
Everywhere you go.
Carry the weight of love.
Let the people know:
You cannot make your father’s dream come true.
You cannot save the generations after you.
Your brother and your sister need you now.
Their faces and their fears will show you how
To carry the weight of love.
Carry the weight of love.
