"Tree Of Pain" as written by and Massimiliano A. Cavalera....
My pain is as deep as my roots
The yearning, the Hurting
What am I to do?
Indeed I plant seeds for the path I walk
And my voice helps them grow like water
When I talk but I'm hurting y'all
You didn't die in vain, your thought
With me remains and your soul gives me
Strength to face another day
Without you

In this tree of pain
In this tree of pain
In this tree of pain
Till the day I see you again

Again
Under this tree of pain
Where we carved our names
Forever to remain

This pain
No one can understand
You know we can't pretend
That everything's okay

Bleeding, screaming

I touch your grave
I kiss your face
This pain is more than I can take
I punch your grave
I call your name
This pain is more than I can take

Again
I find myself again
Under the tree of pain
Where we carved our names

Why then
Leave without goodbye
Just tears in my eyes
And the love you left inside

Bleeding, screaming

I touch your grave
I kiss your face
This pain is more than I can take
I punch your grave
I call you name
This pain is more than I can take

For D-Low

Everyday that I pray
Why'd they take his life away?
This pain, it hurts me so bad
All the days that I never had
All I have, my God
Is this tree of pain
All I have, my God
Is this tree of pain
Carved my name, my God
In this tree of pain
Carved my name, my God
In this tree of pain
Dana, one minute's all I need
Dana, to heal the things that bleed
Dana, why God why?

    General Commentwell this is from the Soufly bio on the RoadRunner Records site;

    The song “Tree of Pain” began as a backyard acoustic get-together, further adding to the organic methodology of Max's songwriting. For this epic, 8-minute song Max enlisted the services of Asha Rabouin, who is no newcomer when it comes to working with the band. She sang on “Fly High” which appears at the end of Primitive. “With Soulfly 3 I decided to give Asha a bigger part. She wrote some lyrics that really dig in deep. I really love the first line of the song, 'My pain is as deep as my roots.' That's one of my favorite lines on the whole record,” reveals Max. Max's stepson Ritchie also contributed to “Tree of Pain,” turning it into a three-part tale of loss. “The song is about three people who have lost loved ones in their lifetime and can share that within each other. Each one of us sings in our way. I have my way to express that feeling, Asha has her way, and Ritchie had his way because he lost his brother,” offers Max.

    General CommentThis is an amazing song. How can the lyrics not move you if you've lost somebody you've loved. I think what really makes this song special though, is how they meshed in a sound that isn't you typical Soulfly. This is the best Soulfly to date. Support the band and buy this one.
