Cover of Antimatter’s “Weight Of The World” For The Singing Voice Week 14 on Hive

Greetings!!!

This week I’m doing a cover song, from the band Antimatter! This is one of Mick’s older songs from the album “Planetary Confinement” called “Weight Of The World”. I’m not totally sure his meaning when he wrote this song, but for me, it is the tale of someone who is very empathic and introverted. I’m not going to claim that I’m empathic, however, I am extremely introverted and I cannot be around too many people for too long. I get tired, overwhelmed, and depressed. It is a hard feeling to really explain to people who don’t feel the same way, but this song comes pretty close. Basically, unless I’m in nature, alone, or with a few close friends and family, I feel like I’m in Hell.

Lyrics

Save me…
‘Cause I’m in a sea of beings
And there’s no deny
The waves are holding me under
I’m drowning in a thousand faces
Alien expressions over and over again
I’m trying to scream, but I can’t exhale
The world seems to spin as I’m left on this square
With no will to hold on
Am I the only one crushed by the weight of the world?
Save me…
‘Cause I think I’ve swallowed more than I can comprehend
A soul laid low
A soul has lost its faith again
Wide awake in this hole
A maggot on a plate again
Wide awake in this hole
A soul has lost its faith
I’ve lost myself too long
Am I the only one crushed by the weight of the world?
