Story of a man who decided not to breathe
He turned red, purple then blue, colorful indeed
No matter how his friends begged but he would not concede
And now he's dead you see, cuz everybody knows you got to breathe

But oh God
Under the weight of life
Things seem brighter on the other side

lighter on the other side.

Another one, You see this monkey sitting in his monkey tree
One day decided to climb down and run off to the city
But look at him now tired and drunk living in the street
As good as dead you see a monkey should know stay up your tree

But oh God
Under the weight of life
Things seem brighter on the other side

Oh God
But under the weight of life
Things seem much brighter on the other side

No way, no way
No way out of here

Another one, a big eyed fish swimmin in the sea,
How he dreamed, he wants to be a bird, swoopen diven through the breeze.
One day, caught a big blue wave up onto the beach
Now hes dead, you see a fish's dream should stay in the sea

But oh God,
Under the weight of life,
Things seem brighter on the other side

But oh God,
Under the weight of life,
Things seem brighter on the other side

No way, No way,
No way out of here.

No way out of here....
No way out of life.
