[Intro]
Am F G x2

[Verse]
AmI'm down below where the floor is out of focus,
F Gpent up and played down, rained in and worn out
AmPicking away at the studs in the boards
F GThey're all too familiar, I've been here before.
AmThe air is like lead and I've swallowed what I've said.
F GI'm a broken machine and a match already burned.
AmAnd I'm quiet, all despite the raging in my head
F GCollapsed inside and out until my strength can return.
[Chorus]
Dm Am C GI'm undone. All I know is the weight of the world, so empty and so
Dm Am C Guninspired. Sorrow and sleep and disbelief, caught up in the weight of
Amthe world.
[Interlude] Am F G x1 [Verse]
AmI'm down below where it's silent and it's safe,
F Gresounding with the question of "Where to, from here?"
AmI know my direction, I know what it takes,
F Gbut I'm weak and I'm weightless with everything to fear.
AmI write about what's real to me when all I feel is make believe,
F Gbut I won't say there's nothing left, there's everything, but just out
Amof reach.
[Chorus]
Dm Am C GI'm undone. All I know is the weight of the world, so empty and so
Dm Am C Guninspired. Sorrow and sleep and disbelief, caught up in the weight of
Amthe world.
[Bridge]
C G Dm But I'm not helpless;
C G FI'm not hopeless.
C G Dm C G AmBut I don't believe in hope on it's own, no spine and no substance.
[Chorus]
Dm Am C GI'm undone. All I know is the weight of the world, so empty and so
Dm Am C Guninspired. Sorrow and sleep and disbelief, caught up in the weight of
Amthe world.
[Outro]
Am FIt's time to see the floor sink around me, pushed down with my two bare hands and
Am F Gnow I'm stronger for whatever comes. Let the blood rush, as I rise to
Ammy feet.
