lyrics

Atlas

They say to know the heart of a man first you must walk a mile in his shoes.
What I am learning from your footsteps...One day in my life would destroy you.
I remain firm where you falter.
I swim in the tears of your daughter.

I carry the weight of the world.
I carry your life on my shoulders.

I am ATLAS.

I step in any direction and there's your ghost right behind my.
Hands, turned to stone for protection.
Well the devil he came here to find me.

Anybody would break with this weight on their head.
I will carry this burden with me till I'm dead
and the names and the letters they come with a price.

This is my sacrifice:

Each day I rise, still in darkness, to feed machines that can kill you.
I count the heads of the dead men you don't have the strength or the will to

I watched your neck break with this weight on your head.
I will carry this burden with me till I'm dead
and the names and the letters they come with a price.

For those..... I sacrifice

The air you breathe
Belongs to me
Red eyes to keep me warm
In the calm before the storm

They say to know the heart of a man....
But I do all your walking for you
You have no heart.
