Weight of His Words - Bill Madden

His mind is set, his eyes are fixed
He criticizes just for kicks
With every prick and insult he spews
His ego blows up like a hot balloon
He speaks of things he thinks he knows
In syncopated measured tones
He sees himself a sage in robes
But I see a fool

He don't acknowledge why it is
This clinging to life's bitterness
Where there's no love, there is no faith
Without forgiveness, there is no grace
What's been said in the past
You can't escape
He's gonna carry the weight
Carry the weight
He's gonna carry the weight
Carry the weight of his words

I know there's a reason for everything
But it didn't have to be this way
I can't help but think of
What a cryin' shame
He's gonna carry the weight
Carry the weight
Gonna carry the weight
Carry the weight
Gonna carry the weight
The weight of his words

He's gonna carry the weight
He's gonna carry the weight
The weight of his words...
