Lyrics

    Bitterness and burden
    Curses rest on thee
    Solitaire and sorrow
    All Eternity
    
    Save the Earth and claim perfection
    Deem the mass and blame rejection
    Hold the pose, reign perception
    Grudges break your back
    
         All you bear
         All you carry
         All you bear
         Place it right on, right on me
    
              Die as you suffer in vain
              Own all the grief and the pain
              Die as you hold up the skies
              Atlas, Rise!
    
              How does it feel on your own?
              Bound by the world all alone
              Crushed under heavy skies
              Atlas, Rise!
    
    Crucify and witness
    Circling the sun
    Bastardize and ruin
    What have you become?
    
    Blame the world, and blame your maker
    Wish ‘em to the undertaker
    Crown yourself the other savior
    So you carry on
    
         All you bear
         All you carry
         All you bear
         Place it right on, right on me
    
              Die as you suffer in vain
              Own all the grief and the pain
              Die as you hold up the skies
              Atlas, Rise!
    
              How does it feel on your own?
              Bound by the world all alone
              Crushed under heavy skies
              Atlas, Rise!
    
    Masquerade as maker
    Heavy is the crown
    Beaten down and broken
    Drama wears you down
    
    Overload, the martyr stumbles
    Hit the ground and heaven crumbles
    All alone, the fear shall humble
    Swallow all your pride
    
         All you bear
         All you carry
         All you bear
         Place it right on, right on me
    
              Die as you suffer in vain
              Own all the grief and the pain
              Die as you hold up the skies
              Atlas, Rise!
    
              How does it feel on your own?
              Bound by the world all alone
              Crushed under heavy skies
              Atlas, Rise!
