"Cumbersome" as written by and Jason Lawrence Ross Jason Knowles Pollock....
She calls me Goliath and I wear the David mask
I guess the stones are coming too fast for her now
You know I'd like to believe this nervousness will pass
All the stones that are thrown are building up a wall

I have become cumbersome to this world
I have become cumbersome to my girl

I'd like to believe we could reconcile the past
Resurrect those bridges with an ancient glance
But my old stone face can't seem to bring her down
She remembers bridges, burns them to the ground

I have become cumbersome to this world
I have become cumbersome to my girl

Too heavy too light, too black or too white, too wrong or too right, today or
Tonight
Cumbersome
Too rich or too poor, she's wanting me less and I'm wanting her more
The bitter taste is cumbersome

There is a balance between two worlds
One with an arrow and a cross
Regardless of the balance life has become
Cumbersome

Too heavy too light, too black or too white, too wrong or too right, today or
Tonight
Cumbersome
Too rich or too poor, she's wanting me less and I'm wanting her more
The bitter taste is cumbersome

No, yeah I know now, know
Know now, know yeah
Your life has become cumbersome

    Song MeaningMycohl has it, about the relationship being a stalemate and that a guy is losing his girl, he doesn't know how to get her back even though he probably led the relationship get to that point. I also agree that cumbersome (burdensome) should mean heavy, the bad relationship has become burdensome (or a heavy load) on the shoulders of both the guy and the girl. I've seen weight (meaning negative, excess baggage)used in alot of grunge and post-grunge songs as a common theme, sometimes it means guilt too. I like the way cumbersome is used in this song.

    General CommentWhat I personally get from this song is that this guy has cheated or has been doing something wrong to his girlfriend and he's saying he wishes he could make things ok again but she won't forgot about it and because of this he is a burden to her.

    General Comment7m3 fuckin rocks, this is one of their better songs. It's a shame they weren't more succesful than they were. Their lead singer had an amazing voice.

    General CommentThis was a good time for music, Nirvna, STP, Alice In Chains, 7m3, tons of great bands.

    Oh and that first line is genius, those are GREAT lyrics.

    "She calls me Goliath and I wear the David mask
    I guess the stones are coming too fast for her now
    You know I'd like to believe this nervousness will pass
    All the stones that are thrown are building up a wall"

    I guess he's saying he has pretended to be nice and honest to his girl, and really he's been un-faithful to her. And it's too much for her to take and she's slowly moving away from him.
