"Jump On My Shoulders" as written by and Aaron R. Bruno....
There's a mad man looking at you
And he wants to take your soul.
There's a mad man with a mad plan
And he's dancing at your door. Oh
What to do, oh
What to do
When the walls are built to crumble.
There's a mad man with a mad plan
And he waits for us to stumble.

[Chorus]
Oh, but our eyes are open
Yeah, they're really open
(Five, four, three, two, one)
I say we rob from the rich
And blow down the door.
On to the next
To dance with the poor.
Jump on my shoulders.
You can jump on my shoulders.
We rob from the rich
And blow down the door.
On to the next
To dance with the poor.
Jump on my shoulders.
You can jump on my shoulders.

[Repeat: x3]
La la la la la la la la

Everybody it's OK if
You're mad at what I'm saying.
Make peace, baby shake my hand 'cause
I'm pretty sure I'm staying. Oh
What to do, oh
Look at you, when the walls begin
To crumble.
It's a mad man with a mad plan
And he waits for us to stumble.

[Chorus]

[Repeat: x6]
La la la la la la la la

I'll say the devils lost control

Live in the water
I'm scared of the city
Stay in the water
I'm scared of the city
Live in the water
I'm scared of the city.

I'm scared of the city
Live in the water
I'm scared of the city
I'll pray for you

I say we rob from the rich
And blow down the door.
On to the next
To dance with the poor.
Jump on my shoulders.
You can jump on my shoulders.
We rob from the rich
And blow down the door.
On to the next
To dance with the poor.
Jump on my shoulders.
You can jump on my shoulders.

Seriously
It's not supposed to be easy
That's why it feels so fucking good.
Jump on my shoulders, yeah.

    My InterpretationI think it's about how money makes people crazy, but what matters is enjoying life and love. The mad man reminds me of rich people I've worked for in soulless jobs that eventually crumble because they mean nothing. The mad man's waiting for someone to stumble to tear them down (or fire them) so he can feel control, but he's ultimately miserable. When money doesn't matter, you can open your eyes to what's really important like life and love, friends and fun.

    Working for rich people is kind of like robbing them. The chorus reminds me of going to a concert or club. Even though we don't make a lot of money, my husband and I always find a way to go to concerts and have fun with our friends. "Jump on my Shoulders" makes me think of going to a concert and, as a girl it's sometimes hard to see. I actually think it's pretty romantic because he seems to be saying 'I'll hold you up and we can just dance and have fun.'

    I think "The devil's lost control" refers to not letting money rule our lives. "Live in the water/I'm scared of the city" reminds me it's important to return to nature, since I actually do live in a city and it gets overwhelming. The last lyric is the most meaningful, I think because it's so easy to relate to. It's like life's hard for all of us, but whatever you're looking for - it's worth it in the end if you don't give up. Just my interpretation. It's an amazing song.

    General CommentI feel like it's about the eventual end of capitalism or at least this form of capitalism.

    Song Meaningthe meaning of this song is about the zombie apocalypse. We'll rob from the rich, blow down the door (We will take their guns and food) onto the next to dance with the poor (We will fight the zombies with the guns) You can jump on my shoulders (You can trust me, I will take care of you and your soul) Stay in the water, I'm scared of the city (The city is overrun, so they stay in the ocean on a boat to avoid that danger)
