Seven Mary Three: Cumbersome Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 1996
I guess the stones are coming to fast for her now
You know I'd like to believe this neverous will pass
All the stones that are thrown are building up a wall
I have become cumbersome to this...

Clearly the song is about a relationship gone bad and the singer(the man) feels his transgressions have become too much for his girl to handle. In the chours( too heavy too light)etc. he seems to be saying that no matter what he does she finds something else wrong. With the writers clever use of metaphors one can get a glimpse into the relationship. For example, in the first verse the line "all the stones that are thrown are building up a wall" would, to me, indicate that all the things said during the couples arguements have built a barrier, hence wall, between the two preventing further communication between the two to happen. To me the singer feels his trangressions have become " cumbersome" to his mate.
Great song!!!! While a great many songs have been written about this subject, this one is above average in terms of the clever use of words( lyrics ) to teel the story. The music, while really simplistic in a compositional sense, conveys the anger that is generated by this type of relationship most excellantly. All in all a great song, performed very well, about a subject that almost any one can relate to. Great job 7 mary 3!!!!!!!!! Rock on peeps!!!!!!
