The weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living

All that you desired, when you were a child was to be old, was to be old
Now that you are here, suddenly you fear you've lost control, lost control

Do you like the person you've become?

[Chorus:]
Under the weight of living, you're under the weight of living
Under the weight of living you are under the weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living

It all crept upon you, in the night it got you and plagued your mind, it plagued your mind
Everyday it passes, faster than the last did and you'll be old, soon you'll be old

Do you like the person you've become?

[Chorus:]

Oh, tell yourself this is how it's going to be, oh tell yourself this is how it's going to be

The weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living
