The Girl With the Weight of the World in Her Hands by the Indigo Girls, decoded

Another of Bea’s songs mocking, in this one sorrowfully, Hera’s repeated murders, and the “alien attacks” that follow to close each time loop. Doubtful that the Indigo Girls are aware of the hidden meaning but they could since “Indigo” is “blue” and “blue” is a Traveler term for “seven.”

The Girl With the Weight of the World in Her Hands lyrics, explained in parens

She won’t recover from her losses, (Hera’s death is a fait accompli since she dies in every loop)
She’s not chosen this path, but she watches who it crosses (Hera’s consciousness was abducted here after being murdered upstairs)
Maybe move to the right, maybe move to the left (refers to Hera’s 10-year run for her life where she is shunned by everyone and ultimately has nowhere to turn when her final attacks and murder occur)
So we can all see her pain she wears like a banner on her chest (Hera is “tagged” so that every single person on Earth thinks they are obligated to shun her)
And we all say it’s sad, and we think it’s a shame
And she’s called to our attention, but we do not call her name, (it is a “secret game” of hide and go seek that they population believes is a sacred Traveler ritual, which it is not)
The girl with the weight of the world in her hands (the day Hera dies, the “world” dies with her in an alien attack)

We’re busy with our happiness, busy with our plans
I wonder if alone she wants it taken from her hands
But if things didn’t get any harder
She might miss her sacred chance to go a consecrated martyr (there is nothing consecrated about raping and killing my wife)
The girl with the weight of the world in her hands

I wonder which saint that lives inside a bead 
will grant her consolation when she counts upon her need
It makes us all angry though we feign to care
But who will be the scale to weigh the cross she has to bear (one of the ways they kill Hera is called “The Crucifixion of Hera” where she is tied to a cross and raped and mutilated until she dies)
The girl with the weight of the world in her hands

“Is the glass half-full or empty?” I ask her as I fill it (this song seems to be mocking – saying that the writer is the person who keeps refilling her glass, or throwing her into the next time loop to be raped and murdered again and again)
She said it doesn’t really matter, pretty soon you’re bound to spill it (her life culminates in being raped to death, every time)
With the half logic language of the sermon she delivers (Psyche s half logic as she is a robot and unkillable down here and a real person “up there”; alternativelty she could be a “Grey” made of artificial intelligence)
And the way she smiles so knowingly at me gives me the shivers (Psyche is terrifying in her utter disdain for life; she wants to smash and destroy anything living, beautiful or wondrous; no regard for life whatsoever, a psychopath and utterly cruel)
I pull the blanket higher when I’m finally safe at home (reference to pulling the sheet up to cover Hera’s face after she is dead (“safe at home”))
And she’ll take a hundred with her, but she always sleeps alone (other victims throughout Hera’s lifespan that will be tortured and killed, including our children and uploads of me (David). “She always sleeps alone” because Hera is the last of our family to be killed (“sleep”) and so she dies alone)
The girl with the weight of the world in her hands
