Lyrics

Took the fireworks and the vanity The circuit board and the city streets Shooting star, swaying palm tree Laid it at the arbiter's feet If I could change my mind, change the paradigm Prepare myself for another life Forgive myself for the many times I was cruel to something helpless and weak But here it comes, that heavy love I'm never going to move it alone Here it comes, that heavy love Tag it on a tenement wall Here it comes, that heavy love Someone's got to share in the load Here it comes, that heavy love I'm never going to move it alone I was dressed in white, touched by something pure Death obsessed like a teenager Sold my tortured youth, piss and vinegar I'm still angry with no reason to be At the architect who imagined this For the everyman, blessed Sisyphus Slipping steadily into madness Now that's the only place to be free But here it comes, that heavy love You're never going to move it alone Here it comes, that heavy love Tattooed on a criminal's arm Here it comes, that heavy love Someone got to share in the load Here it comes, that heavy love You're never going to move it alone No, I don't want to play It's a shell game, it's a shell game Distorted sounds on oscilloscopes Distorted facts, I could never cope My private life is an inside joke No one will explain it to me We'll be everything that we ever needed Everyone, on the count of three! Everyone, on the count of three! All together now! Here it comes, that heavy love We're never going to move it alone Here it comes, that heavy love Playing as the cylinder rolls Here it comes, that heavy love I only want to share in the load Here it comes, that heavy love I'm never going to move it alone
