"Pain Redefined" as written by and David/donegan Draiman....
Fading, falling, lost in forever
Will I find a way to keep it together?
Am I strong enough to last through the weather
In the hurricane of my life?
Can it be a conscious decision?
That I look for ways to alter my vision?
Am I speeding towards another collision
In the alleyways of my life?

Memories don't lie
You're no better than
Memories don't lie
You're no better than
Memories don't lie
You're no better than
Those who have fallen
Memories don't lie
You're no better than
Memories don't lie
You're no better than
Memories don't lie
You're no better than
Those who have fallen

And please believe me
That my eyes deceive me
Don't stand me up
Just leave me
I have fallen again
This is the end
Pain redefined

Shaking, burning up with the fever
In the realm of pain, I am the deceiver
Now I lie to myself, so I can believer her
As she dissembles my life
I cannot dispel the illusion
All my hopes and dreams are drowned by confusion
Can I find a way to make a solution
That will reconfigure my life?

Memories don't lie
You're no better than
Memories don't lie
You're no better than
Memories don't lie
You're no better than
Those who have fallen
Memories don't lie
You're no better than
Memories don't lie
You're no better than
Memories don't lie
You're no better than
Those who have fallen

And please believe me
That my ears deceive me
Don't stand me up
Just leave me
I have fallen again
This is the end
Pain Redefined

And I know that stillness shatters
We have all been frightened by the
The sound of footsteps on the
Pavement of our lives
I stand and fight
I'm not afraid to die
Elochai
Bury me tonight

Please believe me
That the world deceives me
Don't stand me up
Just leave me
I have fallen again
This is the end
Pain Redefined

    General CommentThis song sounds like someone who has been left suddenly, by someone he loved in very much, without knowing what went wrong "all my hopes and dreams are drowned by confusion" and it was a pain he never felt before "pain redefined" and hes trying to get over it by lying to himself.

    General CommentI agree with Socom, The way david sings the song makes it feel like someone has abrubtly left him for no reason. He has no idea why.

    General CommentAnother correction...
    Memories don't lie,
    You KNOW better than

    I think this song sounds like someone who's in a relationship with a person who lies a lot, and it hurts. But, the singer can't decide whether to leave her or not, so he's stuck there, in pain but unable to stop it.

    General CommentThe actual lyrics from Disturbed say its "You're no better then"
    Elochai is Hebrew, what it means or stands for I don't know.

    General CommentNo, they don't say "You're no better than." I'm looking at the lyric book right now. It's "You know better than."

    And I believe that Elochai means 'my god' or something along those lines.
