"World Upon Your Shoulders" as written by and Daniel Johns....
All the bridges in the world won't save you
If there is no other side to cross to

When you're not feeling ugly
The world's not too much

Take the world upon your shoulders
Take the world upon your shoulders
And burn, burn, burn, burn, burn
Take the world upon your shoulders

Half full glasses
Lost in empty houses

When you're not feeling nothing
The world's not too much

Take the world upon your shoulders
Take the world upon your shoulders
And burn, burn, burn, burn, burn
Take the world upon your shoulders

Violent, big and violent
You're like a thing that's big and violent
A world that's big and violent

When you're not feeling nothing
The world's not too much

Take the world upon your shoulders
Take the world upon your shoulders
And burn, burn, burn, burn, burn
Take the world upon your shoulders
Take the world upon your shoulders
Take the world upon your shoulders

    General Commentyeah i'm starting to relate to daniel's lyrics i mean i've always been a pretty big silverchair fan i think daniel's a really good bloke i think his parents probably loved him alot and gave him the strength to believe in himself...he really sort of knows how to give you the fuck u when you're trying to be something you're not. he really values being an individual even if it makes you whatever, like he's not antisocial but he just happens to like being himself. i think he's a rare individuall;.. my true self is actually a lot less liked than the fake self i've been putting out there to be a good citizen like, always helping people,. i don't know if i can do that, as like, a regular part of my life. i kinda feel like a freak when i let down other's expectations and because of that i can relate to lyrics (not of this song especially. just silverchair in general)
