Briefly I wrote this song as result of feeling emotionally bound to things like addiction and emotionally self destructive patterns. Using knots as a theme throughout the song, alluding to things that can keep us tied back from healthy progression. The chorus is an encouragement to not keep stumbling over these things. The lase verse of the song speaks directly of being tied up in a physical sense and not being subjugated to the will of the internal subjugation, in which we can become expert at rope tying and daring to defy the desire to do this with a physical experience. The video clip has three main themes/locations a cast of 3 The child, lead singer Brad, The angry dad and homeless man played by James Barrie who starred in Weight in the Water.
Respect, Brad.

Lyrics

Sitting there with your overdraft loan, half hitched unto your future nest
You got busy in the mind and your body won't digest
You lost your mind, you lost your mind, you had to drown to see a shard of light
A shot of fear to keep you aflight, stumbling man you got to stumble right

You’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block

A man's just a boy until he's suffered allot, all this time his teeth were clenched on a hackamore knot
To get by, you had to lie a lot, have you found your truth, tell us what you've got
Will you take a chance or will the echo stop?
Dare I shout o'er the stumbling block

You’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block, you’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block
You’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block, you’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block

Your all in the water now hanging on a paramour knot
You need to save your breath to fight, or will you give it all you’ve got
Will you fight, or will you give up, have you lost your bight and the bright gone dull
Take a shot in the dark if your eyes are shut
Dare I float o'er the stumbling block

You’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block, you’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block
You’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block, you’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block

I see your hands are shaky, and your nails are all chewed short
Familiar comfort to be fettered, and a master with the chord
Maybe you don’t mind, oh if you don’t mind, then your subjugated to the will of the wild
Let your wrists and ankles to be tied; dare we defy the stumbling desire

You’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block, you’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block
You’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block, you’ve got to walk o'er the stumbling block

Dare we defy the stumbling desire
