Hurt – Ten Ton Brick lyrics

A ten ton brick was making me sick
Breakin' my bones with the weight of it
The weight would grow with each new soul
Buried fine lies make big, black holes

And who am I supposed to be?
Not like you'd give a fuck about me?
But who am I supposedly?
When I'm finally done?
But I'm finally done with the decisions of my former thoughts
And all that I may have loved
Yeah, I'm finally done with the descriptional
And I don't mind sayin' I'm to blame!

When atlas slipped I lost my grip
Yet, I didn't think it could turn into this
But I was told by two sweet crows
Nobody feels what nobody knows

And who am I supposed to be?
If everything good was taken from me
And who am I supposedly?
I was overcome...
But I'm finally done with the divisions of my former thoughts
Although I may have lost
I'm finally done with the dissention now yet I don't mind sayin'
I don't mind sayin I'm to blame!

Oh, this ten ton brick would treat me like shit
This little piggy licked others lips, yeah
And so defined, who was I
But it won't encumber me.

'cause I'm finally done with the position of my former thoughts
And all that it may have cost
I'm finally done with the decisions
Love now I don't mind sayin'
Don't mind sayin' you're to blame...

When you moved you moved me
When you move you move me
"nothing comes from nothing" must mean something in the end,
Justify the means,
I mean to break you,
Need to hate you,
Need to take this back,
But taking is like giving if you're at the other end
I won't pretend to know your feelings
I could never break the chain
I command you to move

    The song definitely uses mythological references to provide descriptive metaphors. I think the gist behind the metaphors is having a change in a deep belief, relationship or construct. Sometimes when a person realizes that regardless of how firmly they believed in something, that somethings was hurting them or was falsely presented. Ditching the old belief system can be painful, but also cathartic in being done with old way of thinking or being.
