"This Shoulder" as written by and Simon Frank Grenehed Christian Thell Lindskog....
Come with me, ride upon my shoulder why don't you
Don't you see, you can't fall down when you're
On my shoulder
You wonder if you must climb
To get away from the slime
Seeking it's way in to your heart
But I know
Yes I know

You'll see this through
Come ride upon my shoulders I'll carry you
Why is it that you must fight alone?
I've known you before you did
So don't you play no charade

Breathe my air, come ride upon my shoulders
Don't feel scared, I won't break when you're on
My shoulder
You wonder if you must climb
To get away from the slime
But I alone will lift you up
Because I know
Yes I know

It is time
To leave yourself behind
I can take every drop of your spit
But it's when you do you see you don't fit
It is time

    General CommentThis is one of their best songs from their self-titled, in my opinion. The dissonance throughout the chorus that never quite resolves correctly adds strength to the uncomfortable feeling of the song.

    "I can take every drop of your spit
    until you see you don't fit
    it is time"
    I'm pretty sure that's what the words are...But I love how it's every drop of spit. It's gross, isn't it? It's an interesting way of saying that God doesn't mind our weirdness, our mistakes..the things we're ashamed of. He takes it all in the package - He made us and He loves us.

    Overall, it's saying to rely on God. He can take it, He can pick us up out of the sin and slime of the world around us, and He will love us and fight for us no matter how little we think we're worth. "Why is it that you must fight alone?" He wants to take it for us. He knows our hearts better than we do; "I've known you before you did, so don't you play no charade." The meaning is simple, but this is their first album. It's expected to be simple and straightforward.
