Lord Huron - The Balancer's Eye Lyrics




Heaven never ever heard a word I said
I've cried enough to raise the dead
"Everything comes and goes," they say
Here tomorrow, gone today

Heaven won't let me in, I don't know why
No one ever loved half as much as I
Everyone's a sinner in the balancer's eye
I've prayed enough, I rolled the dice
Anyone's luck can turn, I've heard
Not soon enough, I gave my word

I was born right into nothing
Under a very bad sign
Can I cross beyond that line?
Is it in my mind?
Is it in my mind?
Is it in my mind?
Is it in my mind?

Nothing's waiting for us in the great sky
Life is equal to dust in the balancer's eye
Now I know that I can't lift an old curse
Tell me, how does a man change the universe?

Will I ever be forgiven for the crime of my life?
Will it haunt me 'til I die?
To the end of time
To the end of time
To the end of time
To the end of time

Heaven won't let me in, I don't know why
No one ever loved half as much as I

If I follow the starlight and call your name
Will I see you again on the astral plane?
I been learnin' the truth, made me feel worse
Tell me, how does a man change the universe?
Doesn't matter, it's too late to do right
Heading into the void at the speed of light
Now I know that I can't lift an old curse
Tell me, how does a man change the universe?
...

Follow the emerald star

    “Tell me how does a man change the universe”

    Anyone out there know this song on guitar, especially that solo? I’d love to learn it, and maybe even get some other people to do all the parts.

  3. GageB28 -

    Okay but does anyone understand the lyrics to this and the story? I suspect the narrator made a big mistake and is asking “the balancer’s eye” for forgiveness.

    Travis F

    Seems about right

  4. Hussain T

    This is amazing

  5. Gorbla123

    Is this song about Thanos? It sounds like it's about Thanos...

    Here tomorrow, gone today


    Heaven won’t let me in, I don’t know why
    No one's ever loved you half as much as I
    Everyone’s a sinner in the balancer’s eye
    I’ve prayed enough, I rolled the dice
    Anyone’s luck can turn, I’ve heard
    Not soon enough, I gave my word


    I was born right into nothing
