HeavyWeight Muscatine, Iowa

Hailing from the small overlooked town of Muscatine, IA, HeavyWeight started out as just a means for 5 guys to play music while holding down the basic adult juggling act of family and work. With musical backgrounds ranging from doom style rock/ metal to the fast paced hardcore style, HeavyWeight molds all these sounds into one solid monster wall of sound. ... more

Track Name: The Great Divide
isolation inequality
disconnect trends
choices change result solutions
decisions priorities
positive negative impact
compromise collapse accepted

who's wrong who's right who cares
none of that matters

hey hey hey
none of that matters

decisions that determine to engage or isolate
divide and rule
weaken and conquer
love and enslave

we're outcast like lepers
living on the fringe
the fabric of America shredded thin
our foundation crumbled
by the hands of the powers that be

who's wrong who's right who cares
none of that matters now

hey hey hey
hey hey hey
hey hey hey

we need some positive change

We've turned into a 50 headed monster
This day they feared
This day has come
Our cages have been rattled
Poked, prodded, and tormented for years
Bottled up for now but
the dog is off its chain

We've created a environment of hatred and violence which accomplishes nothing

United we stand
divided we fall

they have drove a stake
into America's heartland

somethings got to change
or continue our descend

Backing everything I despise
Everything I hate

There's been a great divide
No one gets out of here alive

we are consumed and distracted by the next new shiny trend they dangle in front of our face

your Facebook likes
mean nothing

by the hands of
the powers that be

Hey Hey Hey

We are faced with Heavy times
situation unstable
Separation of people
By money power greed
Race & religion politics
the power
The color we see
Divides our nation
Spreads across the land
Fighting each other
We need a new plan.....
Track Name: Crash Course
I am awake

The truth is I tried to make change
The fact is I've come a long long way
Letting go of this weight

These demons they tell me what to do
These demons they tell me what to say

These walls
That confine me
Body warm from the light
but now I see
Now I see

These demons they tell me what to do
These demons they tell me what to say

For so long I wandered
In this body of mine
But I wasn't me
Crashed in this wreckage a mess
Tossed among the waves on the shore

Hoping I get back to the person I was before

In this road less traveled lays
a broken man beat to dust
But he will rise again
To make the same mistakes
To dig his grave
to dig his own grave again

Each time a lesson is taught
Etched upon his skin
Like a treasure map
Searching for the X
He tries again

as I wake up
and the sun hits my eyes
I will rise to try again
Track Name: No Room
The sun warms my body
On this cold December day
Where we once stood United as brothers
Victories and wealth we shared
barriers are now bonds
During a time actions we're measured much louder than words

Never had
Never more
Never will

By these filthy hands
Wrapped around my throat

filthy hands

never had
never more
never will

suffocated by these filthy hands

wrapped around my throat

through the darkness
a light does shine
reminding me to never go back to where I once was

My heart still beats to the sound of the war drums
Track Name: Sin Eater
This darkness has taken its toll on my
Body, mind, & soul
I've become a host to this parasite
Latched on and won't let go
Draining me of everything
Right down to the very bone

I struggle for control

Turn months
To years

Still this war I fight

I won't give up
I can't give in

I Keep pushing twords the light

Go back from
Where you come

crawling out from within
beneath the skin
I will listen
latched on and won't let go

this darkness has taken
it's toll on my body my mind my soul I've become a host to this parasite latched on and won't let go

parasite parasite parasite

go back from where you come

It Wont get the best of me

crawling out from within

it won't get the best of me

beneath the skin

won't get the best of me

when will this end

won't get the best of me

crawling Out from within
beneath the skin
when will this end

won't get the best of me
Track Name: War Paint
The Fucking imposter
Has infiltrated these walls
Vultures circle patiently
Waiting to rip into the flesh
Of the bodies you have left strewn
Across. across your path

Years of planning have gotten you this far
But we know who lies beneath the mask
There is no room for two at the top
And I plan on holding. holding my view

Abandon the thought of victory
This is not a game
This is war

There are no winners here
But the score to be settled
At all cost

Deliver me the head of the serpent the one we can not trust let us make an example out of him for the next who think they can sneak through these gates there wrong
