Chains

Original and similar lyrics
I don't want any trouble. I don't want to make any waves. I don't want any conscience. And I don't wanna be brave. I've kept my distance. My feelings have never been shown. I know that I've been walking fences, Denied what I have known. I carry chains. (I carry chains.) Heavy, heavy chains. (Chains that are made.) I carry chains (I carry chains) 'round my feet. I feel the weight (I feel the weight.) Chains are the different things that should not be hanging on me. I put my conscience under a stone, the stone under the ground. Walked from where I had left it. I hoped it couldn't be found. My conscience persisted. It's a haunted seed I have sown. Calls me out from the distance And it just won't leave me alone. I carry chains. (I carry chains.) Chains that are made. (Chains that are made.) I carry heavy chains. (I carry chains.) Talk about the weight. (I feel the weight.) Chains are the temporary things that should not be hanging on me.

Hitlers Girlfriend

Dime Store Prophets
Someone left the window open, cold air is slowly creeping in. I'm siting watching TV sitcoms where everyone is happy in the end, and I'm beginning to believe it, some say we can get by without the help of a friend. And I'm lying here, I'm remotely controlled, strapped to an engine stuck in idle, don't feel 'cause I fear don't love 'cause I lost... don't know, don't want to know... Chorus: I'm not myself, till you are you (I want to bleed, bleed for you) if I close my eyes, I'm killing you (Kiss your hands, kiss your wounds) I carry the weight of this safety net, so I feel like Hitler's girlfriend, I'm blind to this and numb to that. I know a girl who draws happy faces on everything she writes. She doesn't Fool me, I've seen her bag of troubles – It's not light. Don't you know that I want to reach out, cry for her, carry the weight, but something won't let me leave the couch. There's a scream and a crash, there's a knife and a chain and her head is full of spirits... my foot is asleep. I was sprawled out at the foot of my bed with a rage of fire, going round in my head, I said Could this be the salt of the earth in my tears? I am watching Miss Brown, some say she didn't know, just took another Judas' kiss now, well I‘m not blaming you was there something you could do? My coffee is cold...

Jah Heavy Load

Ijahman Levi "Haile I Hymn"
I've got to carry Jah heavy load Because I walk in His gladness On His merry merry road I've got to carry Jah heavy load I've got to back up myself Against false evidence I've got to carry Jah heavy load I've got to pick up where them say Jah Jah left off and gone I have to carry Jah heavy heavy load in my meditation when I reason with Him Clearly in my visions of dreams He reason with me I feel Jah Jah heartically Oh I know what I do believe I believe in Jah-Jah truth and rights I've got to carry Jah heavy load OH I've got to carry Jah heavy load OH This rumour situation that is spreading across the nation Trying to dim the lights Been precious in my Father sight Saying that Rasta Father Trodding this earth no longer But in Zion is my Father's Throne And I know the earth is his foot stool I've got to carry Jah heavy load OH I've got to carry Jah heavy load OH He said I feel it every day I said its heavy every day OH Jah Jah is a every day Heavy every day

Everything In Between

JARS OF CLAY "The Eleventh Hour"
Must have thought I was so strong Might have ever thought I was the one for this all along But I can't even dream Or imagine how it seems To carry the weight of this crown [Chorus:] It's not as easy as it seems To carry the weight of your dreams Hiding in the shadows It's not as easy as it seems With Pharaoh and angel and everything in between (counting on hope) I might have come to a similar conclusion Only mixed up in the wake of confusion That the glamour was mine Though the power divine To carry the weight of this crown I don't know why I see your fire Carry me over Stay this way...
