lyrics

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Brother, could I talk to you for a minute
I've got something on my mind
Have you anything for my bundle
I'll take anything I can find
Now I see it in your eyes you're one like me
Just a mortal, burdened by desires

It may feel like the weight of the world
Let the mountains hold up the weight of the heavens

It's such a simple thing
You must carry yourself what you need to bring
So pack lightly

Sullen eyes own this burden of desires
Angry eyes own this burden of desire
Jealous eyes burdened by desire
Hateful eyes maddened by desire

Sister, could you help me out for a moment
I've got this boulder I can't budge
Gotta roll it up to the bus stop
and get downtown to see a judge
With the extra strain we move a little slower
We sure would appreciate a little nudge

It may feel like the weight of the world
Let the mountains hold up the weight of the heavens

You're such a simple being
You insult the gods with your arrogance and avarice
So get wiser

Sullen eyes own this burden of desires
Angry eyes own this burden of desire
Jealous eyes burdened by desire
Hateful eyes maddened by desire
+++++++++++++++++++++++++
