All the bridges
In the world
Won't save you
If there is no
Other side
To cross to

When your not feeling ugly
The world's not too much
Take the world upon your shoulders
Take the world upon your shoulders
And burn, burn, burn, burn, burn
Take the world upon your shoulders

Half full glasses
Lost in empty houses

When your not feeling ugly
The world's not too much
Take the world upon your shoulders
Take the world upon your shoulders
And burn, burn, burn, burn, burn
Take the world upon your shoulders

Violent, big and violent
Like a thing that's big, big
And violent
A world that's big and violent

When your not feeling ugly
The world's not too much
Take the world upon your shoulders
Take the world upon your shoulders
And burn, burn, burn, burn, burn
Take the world upon your shoulders
Take the world upon your shoulders
Take the world upon your shoulders
