"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 Comment"Violent, big and violent
    Like a thing that's big, big
    And violent"

    That has to be my favourite lyric ever! It's so simple and stupid, it's actually deep.

    And yeah, drgnfx...after he says the big and violent stuff, he says "a world that's big and violent" on the cd. :)
