"The Burden" as written by and David/hamilton Schroeder....
Is it necessary to try to carry this burden alone.
If it were any other day I only stay to satisfy
The urge for hope! But its dead, I'm running away.

It's so real, he said to the man with time on his hands.
I don't think your ready,
And I don't think I am ready to know.

It's so real, he said to the man with time on his hands.
I don't think your ready to go,
And I don't think I am ready to know.

Is it necessary to leave us all behind.
Your in the smoke filled room my eyes will dry with the world on my shoulders.
Praying for light to show a path cause I can't do this by myself,
Do this by myself!

It's so real, he said to the man with time on his hands.
I don't think your ready,
And I don't think I am ready to know.

It's so real, he said to the man with time on his hands.
I don't think your ready, and I don't think I am ready to know. [x4]

    General Commentit kinda sounds like the narrator or someone he knows has a terminal illness or something -> talking about a man w time on his hands (which he doesnt have). and how its so real, and he has to carry this burden alone (maybe he hasn't told anyone yet?) and how someone's not ready to go. im probly waaay off but thats just wat i got =)
