"Shoulders" as written by and Henry James Angus Oliver James Mcgill....
"Shoulders"

I saw you walking up the wall, like the exorcist
When you saw me then you called, "can you spare a fifth?"
I used to know you when you were small, how's it come to this
How does a happy bright boy, fall into the rift

And you carried weight on your shoulders
Won't you see that you are not inside yourself
You put that evil back inside yourself

I saw your Ma the other day, she asked me how you were
I said one day you'll be fine, but now you do your worst
She told me how she cried, that no one breaks your curse
I looked into her eyes my heart it nearly burst

And you carried weight on your shoulders
Won't you see that you are not inside yourself
You put that evil back inside yourself

And What if you breathe and see your good
And what if you reach out knock on wood
I'm begging you please won't you be understood
And won't you release, I believe you could

And if you ever want to dream, I'll help you see the sky
And if you ever want to scream, about some reason why
And if you ever break the seam, that cuts through your disguise
I love you when you're seen, and do my best to try

to carry weight off your shoulders,
Won't you see that you are not here by yourself
Please don't put that evil back inside yourself

And What if you breathe and see your good
And what if you reach out knock on wood
I'm begging you please won't you be understood
And won't you release, I believe you could
