The Weaker

BandAlternativeRock

We are an indie band from central Illinois. We love what we do, and want to share our music with everyone we can. We have a great show with great lyrics. We have fun and show love towards everyone.

Biography

We try to share a message of hope and grace. We take great influences from Edison Glass, As cities burn, and So long forgotten. We love, We breathe, We live, We sing. Love has brought us here, so we breath to live, and we sing every moment of the way. We are the Weaker, and we like to make music. We like to tell a story, one that maybe be forgotten, or remembered forever.

Lyrics

The beggar

Written By: The Weaker

Pour some color into this room, filled with shapes and things I never knew. Distinguish the beauty and everything that lies between.
The tide is coming in and I am drifting out to sea, Oh God please help me.
the tide is coming in, and i am drifting out to sea, compassion flows through my chest and down to my bones. It rattles like a bird settled in it's nest, in it's humble home. I pray to God to hear me now, to hear his son cry out, I'm crying out...
The grass is overgrown, the space in time i fill has overflown, with all the past sins of our youth. When God says no we wont stop, just drop our arms and clench our fists, we wont stop oh no.
There's sweat on my brow, but love it's in my hands safely knit away, I'm a child just a child, I'm going through this room, hoping to find something new. Anything new...
The grass is overgrown, the space in time i fill has overflown, with all the past sins of our youth. When God says no we wont stop, just drop our arms and clench our fists, we wont stop oh no.
the grass is overflown and I have merely overflown
When God says no we wont stop, ell no we wont stop, oh no

Mother, mother, why can't we just get out? It's been several months. Father, father, can you hear us screaming now? We need you more than ever.

Just keep on keeping on no matter what I will stand strong, but jacksonville is just too far away. The war has been won, time elapsed and your still gone, but we've all seen some better days. I'm not scared for myself but merely for my mother's health. She's locked up in her room crying about what she cant change.

Mother, mother, why can't we just get out? It's been several months. Father, father, can you hear us screaming now? We need you more than ever.( we are the fighting ones)

It's not hard being afraid when your alone. You're hurting yourself, you're hurting all of us, the realization is setting in

Mother, mother, why can't we just get out? It's been several months. Father, father,(why cant you save yourself) can you hear us screaming now? We need you more than ever.(we are the fighting ones)

Sleep Is Matter

Written By: The Weaker

I'm sick of sleeping tonight, I cant think straight, my hands are sweaty or so it seems and my heart is heavy
Tossing and turning(I know I know I know)
trying to reach you

Oh sweet sleep, here I come I've missed you for far too long. brush away my sins and gently tuck me in tonight, my dreams will swallow me whole

Taking time to realize everything step I take, I get further from truth. If i exist then i should coincide with what i believe, I'm still losing sleep

Oh sweet sleep, here I come I've missed you for far too long. brush away my sins and gently tuck me in tonight, my dreams will swallow me whole

Tossing and turning(I know I know I know)
trying to reach you( I know I know I'm here)
