"Bite The Pain" as written by and Chuck Schuldiner....
Look down at the body
You may see no trace of wounds
But in the eye
The eye of the beholder
One cannot assume.

Not a drop of blood is drawn
But you know how it bleeds
Beware of the sharp edged weapon
Called human being

It is a shield of passion
And strong will
From this I am the victor
Instead of the kill

I will not feed your hunger, instead
I bite the pain
Looking not back, but forward
I bite down hard
Try to cover up the trail of deceit
And daggers spawned from your soul

Acid, the tears of remorse
Flow in vain, too late for regrets
Save it
For the next ill fated game.

    General CommentI think it's about killing someone but not physically so then you have to hold back or 'bite down' your feelings so your killer won't know they got to you.

    General CommentYou're a fucking idiot, this song is not about abortion. It's about someone who tries to demean and abuse you verbally "Not a drop of blood is drawn
    But you know how it bleeds
    Beware of the sharp edged weapon
    Called human being"

    and about how the singer is strong enough to ignore and get through the pain his agressor tries to put him through.

    General CommentIncredible song: I love this sentence "Acid, the tears of remorse
    Flow in vain, too late for regrets". It seems to me that the theme is similar to "Scavenger of human sorrow" and "Spirit crusher".

    General Commentyou got the meaning exactly Wallamanage. No its about people hurting other people with words and not lowering yourself to violence. "Beware of the sharp edged weapon called human being" is probably the best line in all of music. By the way the singers name is Chuck.

    My OpinionThis song [and really the whole album] really speaks to me because of past situations I've been in as an angry, short person and how people would mess with me.
    "I will not feed your hunger, instead, I bite the pain. Looking not back, but forward, I bite down."

    General CommentHe is singing about someone being attacked, verbally, and just takes it like a man, and doesn't fight back, as two wrongs don't make a right. He is the better man when he just lets it roll off his back. Humans can be the most evil beings on the planet. I've been in circumstances where sharks, cobras, scorpions, and pit bulls are a lot more loving and gentle than a human. That's saying a lot!

    General CommentThis songs about bully's and people who try to bring you down
    " will not feed your hunger"

    General CommentMental abuse and perseverance would be my guess.
    "you may see no trace of wounds"
    "I will not feed your hunger"

    However It almost seems like belligerent has been defeated and perhaps killed.
    "from this i am the victor"
    "too late for regrets. save it"
    "i bite down hard"

    But then again " one cannot assume "

    General CommentThis song is about a T-Shirt that is hung on a line to dry. The sun shines down on him and the water starts to evaporate. He tires of this tedium and wanders off into the forest in search of a gingerbread house. Instead he finds a hermit crab called Charles and realizes what he thought was a forest was actually a beach. The crab nips his sleeve which leads the shirt to cry. He smashes the crab into 10,000,000,000 pieces and sells these for £8.95 each to assorted restaurant chains. With the wetness he gains from crying, he decides he should dry himself and hangs himself on the washing line, only this time he has more money.
