Best Ignatian Songs: The Weight of Lies

Here’s a song to enjoy–and ponder.  “The Weight of Lies” by the folk-rock-bluegrass band The Avett Brothers is about the wages of self-delusion: “The weight of lies will bring you down / and follow you to every town.”  So, “when you run make sure you run / to something and not away from.”  Lyrics here.  (Go here to watch the video on YouTube.) H/T to Tim O’Brien, SJ.
