"Channel For The Pain" as written by Nicholas John Holmes, Gregory John Mackintosh, Alexandre Ghassan Hassnaoui and Renaud Carl Stephane Tschirner....
I live all alone, I wonder why?
I live all alone, I wonder why?

See me shaking never making
All my life and there is no other way
'Til I'm old enough and hit the ground

Never choose because I'm here just to lose
Besides a win would just release
And just maybe solve my minor problems

Don't want to seek, I won't make a demand
Because I'm taking all the things
That prevent me from knowing the truth
Don't want to seek, I won't make a demand
Because although my mind is breaking
My existence makes a channel for the pain

I live all alone, I wonder why?
I live all alone, I wonder why?

See me taking never giving all my life
But there is no other way
'Til I'm old enough and hit the ground

I only lose because I never did choose
And all the loneliness that's there
Is just the core of all my problems

Don't want to seek, I won't make a demand
Because I'm taking all the things
That prevent me from knowing the truth
Don't want to seek, I won't make a demand
Because although my mind is breaking
My existence makes a channel for the pain

I live all alone, I wonder why?
I live all alone, I wonder why?

    General Commentyeah this song is totaly cool..
    the meaning of this song to me is:
    this person is feeling pain, a lots of it, but he likes it and don't want to stop it. He has no will to live anymore, so he chooses to feel pain instead of trying to stop it

    General CommentNot one of their best, but it's pretty good. Nick's basically saying there is no release til you die.

    General CommentFor me it's one of their very best, but it's impossible to choose one best anyway, it depends how you feel at the moment. Obviously, a song about loneliness, probably Nick's "favorite" topic, for some reason known by himself only (he-he), but this song in particular evokes me Travis Bickle' state of mind, in the movie "Taxi Driver".
