Weight Of The World

Lyrics: Dave Diamond
Music: Dave Diamond

Even with the walls closing in on us
Can we make the time to learn and discuss
The dirty secrets that we never talk about?
Our history Iím still trying to figure out

Hegemony is a four-letter word
To think we own it all is totally absurd
Even when Iím looking for a simple rhyme
I keep my brothers and my sisters in my mind

(Make the time)
To let compassion carry the weight of the world
(To remind)
All is not lost to the dogs of war

Timetables drawn upon the maps of war
Diplomacy must work so please donít close the door
Put all the leaders in one big happy box
Close all the doors and fasten all the locks

Take all the time and sources that you need
Maybe kick back and smoke a little weed
Donít take your ball and say youíre going home
ĎCause on this globe we all must get along

(Make the time)
To let compassion carry the weight of the world
(To remind)
All is not lost to the dogs of war
(Whatís yours is mine)
Itís been that way since the dawn of time (note 1)
(Draw your line)
Draw your line, draw your line in the sand

(Make the time)
To let compassion carry the weight of the world
(To remind)
All is not lost to the dogs of war
(Whatís yours is mine)
Itís been that way since the dawn of time
(Draw your line)
Draw your line, draw your line in the sand
Notes
(1) the printed lyrics are "It'll be that way till the end of time"
