The Weight of Hate

The weight of hate lies heavy on your shoulders
Occupies your mind as your heart grows colder
It’ll eats at your gut creep inside your soul
You will never have no peace until you let it go

Hate is a mighty heavy burden to bear
You can’t pretend that it isn’t there
The weight will drag you down eventually
Until you let it go you can never be free
Until you let it go you can never be free

Break free you gotta break free
Break free you gotta break free

The weight of hate lay heavy on my shoulders
Occupied my mind made my heart grow colder
It ate at my gut crept inside my soul
I never have no peace until I let it go
I never have no peace until I let it go

Break free we gotta break free
Break free we gotta break free

Hey Pat!

great chord progression and vocal melody. loving that lap steel (or is that just slide guitar? sounds great!) your vocals are very Tom Waits-esque (whom i am a fan of). you pull that growl off real well. it fits really well with the lyrics. really drives it home.  but i’m thinking you need to cut some of the low end from the vocals as they sound kinda muddy. also think this song could greatly benefit from some background vocals/harmonies especially during the “break free gotta break free” and a guitar solo! was really hoping it would come in somewhere toward the end.

other than that, i think it’s a fine tune and enjoyed listening! thank you!
