Weight of the World

Russell Rivera

 

Verse

You ate that lesson, when they tore you down and you folded...feel the moment 

You wanted to test, but then your confidence was broken...bite the bullet 

~  

And we can’t connect on all the broken lives out there 

~  

Chorus

You see a better day dawning, looking at the morning...

I’ve got the weight of the world I was born in 

And you don’t argue for it, we don’t got to own it... 

Not the weight of the world I was hauling 

~  

Verse

You’re struggling, to fight it off and still inside you want it...seize the moment 

You want to connect, but then your common sense says it’s folded...my condolence 

~  

You can’t recollect, on all the broken lives you’ve lived 

Chorus

You see a better day dawning, looking at the morning...

I’ve got the weight of the world I was born in 

And you can’t argue for it, we don’t got to own it...

Not the weight of the world that we’re hauling 

Bridge

Give me something here, Give me something fair, Will you know the day I broke from here? 

~  

You can’t recollect, on all the broken lives you’ve lived 

Chorus 

You see a better day dawning, looking at the morning... 

I’ve got the weight of the world I was born in 

And you can’t argue for it, we don’t got to own it... 

It’s the weight of the world we’re hauling

Acid Saints Lyrics

Broken Ways 

Russell Rivera 

 

Verse  

I miss your face, and all your ways  

Found my wedding gold, that we had both denied  

So I pushed some things, drove you all away  

Thought of letting go, tired of bleeding for these lies...I swear I learned this time  

~  

Chorus

I’ve thrown away, Broken Ways, found the key and run away  

I think I’m letting go this time  

Well you’ve got to know, feeling low, won’t make it go away  

I think I’m letting go this time  

~  

Verse  

There’s a subtle way, you capture me  

Now it’s getting old, want some freedom from this life  

Now the Queen of Pain, put us all way  

So I let it go, tired of feeding on these lies...I swear I heard it die  

~  

Chorus

I’ve finally, broken free, and the fear runs away  

I think I’m letting go this time  

When you, torture love, bad enough, finally you’ve broken it  

I feel like letting go this time...you see it walking bye  

~   

Bridge

Hate won your light...It’s calling out and growing  

Hate won your light...It’s scarring up this life  

~   

I’ve thrown away, broken ways  

When you torture love, bad enough...finally you’ve broken it  

I think I’m letting go this time...to see it melt and die 

~

Where is Home?

Russell Rivera

 

Verse

The mean old times that come in life, wear you to the bone 

All the suffering, takes us to the brink, and we lose control 

And they sold me out, like an old black cow, at a market’s door 

All the world’s elite, thinks we’re all just meat to be bought and sold 

Where is Home?... 

~  

Chorus

The river flows and glides, the sun danced 

Running, flowing, getting high...talking heavy 

If I’d known, I’d have surely gone today 

When the morning comes, I’ll see it smile and wave 

~  

Verse

If it’s such a crime, to have peace of mind, we’re fooled and lost 

All the hurt we see, and there’s no relief, and we lose control 

And they wore me out, like an old black tile on a market floor 

If you search you’ll find that peace of mind can rule it all 

There is hope...

~  

Chorus

The river flows and glides, the sun danced 

Running, flowing, getting high…talking heavy 

If I’d known, I’d have surely gone today 

When the morning comes, I’ll see it smile and wave 

Outro

Well I felt it caught my mind, and I thought, “What a day” 

And I said I’d like to have woken up and run away 

And you said, “See the sunny girl? That’s been and gone, been and gone, 

But the fiery sun, is feeling so divine"...

~

 

My Wings

Russell Rivera

  

Verse

I will steel you from the pain, And the lies that we prove 

Will you comfort me again, from the things that people do? 

Can you pick me from the rest? Does my light shine out for you? 

Can you feel the aching too...in your heart? 

~

Pre-Chorus

Was your soul lost and deserted? 

Telling your heart that there is only broken dreams around 

Verse

We can crawl from day to day, If you want to we can smile 

Will you run with me again, through our dreams for a while? 

I can’t fault you any less, I can’t love you any more 

And my heart was always yours, from the start 

Pre-Chorus

Was it so wrong and unnerving, telling your heart that there is only broken dreams around? Who cares what people think!!!?? 

Chorus

And it’s weighing me down, these fools in our way 

And one single thing keeps crying out, and singing down... 

They won’t wound my wings, I ain’t gonna lose my way 

Yeah they won’t ruin my wings, Telling these fools I...fools I got away 

~

Verse 

I will be your only friend, when no other can be found 

I will pray and bleed again, for your faith to turn around 

I don’t care what others say, I will love you ever more 

Cause my heart was always your...from the start 

Pre-Chorus

So it goes wrong? Nothing’s perfect. 

Get in your heart, that there is more than broken dreams now... 

Who cares what people think!!!??? 

Chorus

And it’s weighing me down, the fools in our way 

And one single thing that’s crying out, and singing down... 

They won’t wound my wings, Yeah they won’t wound my wings 

Yeah they won’t rule my wings, Yeah they won’t wound my...wound my wings again 

~

Outro

Sat in the garden, We are becoming, full of the greatest sound, the greatest song that comes by Ruling our day...

Yeah they’re gonna roll our way...We’re not gonna lose our way...We’re not gonna lose a...lose another day!!! 

Sat in the garden, We are becoming, Full of the greatest song around...

We've Arrived

Russell Rivera

 

Verse 

Well I hopped on a train to nowhere, I thought I could take it anywhere 

I’ve struggled to see within, And we aren’t growing...feel me growing? 

Well...I’m feeling my way to nowhere, I’m stumbling to pretend I’m there 

I’ll follow you anywhere we are going...feel me glowing? 

~  

Chorus

Like a child that only knows goodbye, It’s a cold divide 

Tired of looking for it we all ride...and said goodbye 

~  

Verse 

Well...I got off the train to nowhere, I couldn’t believe my eyes as if 

If they would’ve told me then, would I have known it?...really known it 

Well…I can’t get my brain to focus, I struggle to see how that you care 

I thought it was anywhere, we were going...feel me going? 

~  

Chorus

Laughing, talking, wondering wild inside, It’s a fun delight 

If heaven don’t let go, then we’ve arrived...heaven we’ve arrived 

I think we’ve arrived... 

I think we’ve arrived... 

I think we’ve arrived... 

~

 

Another Chance

Russell Rivera

 

Verse 

When I see you when the sun breaks, Let it bless your weary head 

When the night turns into sunrise, You got another day to fair 

Well I...can’t escape this heartache, And I can’t escape disdain 

And I...can’t find any reason, I need a reason faith can test 

~  

Chorus

Caught up in this Jealous Minded Mess, Hoping we forget the past 

Can we find our way through all this mess?, Praying for another chance 

~  

Verse 

When I touch you in the moonlight, And you’re feeling love’s caress 

Could I’ve lost you in the darkness, Of a jealous minded mess 

Tell me...could it be I found you, was it half a day too late? 

Could it be you found me, On the wrong side of my fate? 

~  

Chorus

Caught up in this Jealous Minded Mess, Hoping to forget the past 

Living with this deep and dark regret, Praying for another chance 

Can we find our way through all this mess?, If we can forget the past 

We’re caught up in this Jealous Minded Mess, Praying for another chance

~  

Outro

Lost you in the darkness, Lost you in the darkness, Lost you in the starkness 

Of a Jealous Minded Mess...Never mind the mess...Remember all the best 

Was it that smile you missed?...Through the darkness...Through the starkness 

Jealous Minded Mess, Jealous Minded Mess, Jealous Minded Mess 

Never mind the mess

~

Sorry Now

Russell Rivera

 

Verse

Life...who am I to kill the moment? But I, highly doubt...you feel important 

When you...started out, you didn’t mean any harm then 

When you sold us out...I can’t believe I bought it 

But I’m...

~  

Chorus

Sorry I...didn’t make it important 

When I...tore it down, couldn’t even ignore it 

When you...wore it out, it didn’t mean any more than 

Then you...sold it out, you didn’t need it at all then 

~  

Verse

We...forget to live the moment and we’re wound...To give the light and blow it 

When you...wanted out, could you believe I’d thought it? 

When you...sort of doubt, you and me could have fought it 

But I’m… 

~  

Chorus

Sorry I...didn’t make it important 

When I...tore it down, couldn’t even ignore it 

When you...sold it out, you didn’t need it at all then 

When you...tore it down, it didn’t mean any more then 

Chorus

Sorry I...didn’t make it important 

When I...tore it down, couldn’t even ignore it 

When you’ve...thrown it out, could’ve needed me more then 

When you...sold it out, can’t believe I bought it 

And I’m...sorry now, I couldn’t make it important 

When you...wore it out, you didn’t need anybody to lie
