The phrase 'I Can't Breathe' will forever conjure up very poignant images in one's mind; Images of oppression, of brutality, of dissonance.

In A Weight, this phrase is used to represent a numbness and despair felt in witnessing a movement for just change being quashed and silenced with great force, crowds being disbanded with tear gas, rubber bullets and batons. A Weight is not a protest song, but a raw emotional account in feeling helpless and dispirited in the face of adversity.

Floyd James gives a stirring vocal performance, backed by a rich, soulful, gospel inspired arrangement, in what reads like the prayer or plea of someone who is desperately wishing for betterment.
