"Suffer" as written by Mathew Paul Baumbach, Brendon Cohen, Michael Thomas Fleischmann, Michael Kennedy and Tim Williams....
A sickening display
A scar for every line
The beauty and the pain
Of total agony

These lacerations
The stench of slow decay
It desecrates
Making beautiful profane

A tragedy
The suffering of loss
That separates
A fragile soul from its remains

Lay down and you'll suffer
Would you die for your affliction?
Held down, now you suffer!
Would you kill for what destroys you

They pick at the remains
The dead in perfect lines
The beauty in the pain
Of total agony

These lacerations
The stench of slow decay
It desecrates
Making beautiful profane

A tragedy
The suffering of loss
It separates
A fragile soul from its remains

[Chorus]

In darkness, I close my eyes
A prayer to ease the pain
In silence I realize
The darkness will always..

    General Commentmy favorite next to Scars of your Disease. think about it. perfect lines...suffering of loss....it's about the pain of life, suffering, attempting suicide and death (laying down). but i think this song is rather against suicide, since it says "lay down and you'll suffer" meaning do it and you screwed up. and then that dying for your painful life is a mistake.

    General CommentI took this song to be about cutting and physical pain of life as well as death but that they're emphasizing life by saying "would you kill for what destroys you". I think they would say no and that they're talking about suicide from a suicidal point of view. Great song.
