"Pull Your Own Weight" as written by and Bradley Wyrosdick Bryan Kerr....
You always seem to give up trying
You never live up to what you say
All I think of when I hold a pen:
You selling has bought me in

This place is dried up
There's nothing left but dust
I gave you all I had
To take me away

And now I find myself
Back to the start again
Where you end
We begin

Everything you said was a promise
That you never kept
(Everything you said was a promise
that you never)
Everything you said was a promise
That you never kept

Pull your own weight
It's dragging me down
Further to the bottom
Of this town

You're so content with letting go
You wear it like a noose around your throat
You jump the gun and land in front
In front of the bullet

Everything you said was a promise
That you never kept
(Everything you said was a promise
that you never)
Everything you said was a promise
That you never kept

Pull your own weight
It's dragging me down
Further to the bottom
Of this town

Pull your own weight
It's dragging me down
Further to the bottom
Of this town

We are the voice that shouts
(the voice that shouts)
Out from the depths of the crowd
We are everything
That you couldn't live up to

We are the voice that shouts
(the voice that shouts)
Up from the stage so loud
We are everything
That you couldn't live up to

There is no cost
From the loss of you
There is no cost
From the loss of you

That's not your name
You hear me calling out
My window at night
Your name just sounds like
All the things I hate
And people I spite

That's not your name
You hear me calling out
My window at night
Your name just sounds like
All the things I hate
And people I spite

Everything you said was a promise
That you never

Pull your own weight
(your own weight)
It's dragging me down
Further to the bottom
Of this town

Pull my own weight
(my own weight)
And drag you down
And down
And down

    My Interpretationnot completely sure what the meaning is, but i'll give it a try..
    obviously he's over a person or something in his past. this song is about him moving on from the past and starting something new
    "We are the voice that shouts
    (the voice that shouts)
    Out from the depths of the crowd
    We are everything
    That you couldn't live up to"
    this could be talking about his band, new found life, being greater than his old life..

    anyway, it's a great song! the vocals and everything workk perfectly
