Take me to the pain, and all the way back again.
Taking me to the pain, and all the way back.

Life sums up in three words: Better than average.
It never comes easy; It's a savage world.
With damage attached, and doses of happiness
In between if you can survive the rest.

The lies that consume you.
(Pain!)
The pain shows you the way.
The feeling kills inside you.
(Pain!)
But you stay, knowing eventually,
The pain goes away.

But you have to get through it somehow.
I'll tell you when; The time isn't now.

I'm on the ground with 110 men, beating the life from me.
I shake off most of them, to reveal my shattered bones.
My stand, my decision, too; My reasons for it all.
I'll take the way of the others.
Straight back to the pain, and all the way back again.
Taking me to the pain, and all the way back.

Forget about taking, seeing past, understanding.
Letting it go, forgiving and forgetting, when we know
Everything we know and doing nothing about it.
We're just puppets with the hand of pain controlling from inside us and it
Takes us to the pain.
Knowing that they hurt us when they take us back around again.
Straight back to the pain, and all the way back.

Could I put it down on paper for you?
Then you're forcing me to suffer you.

I'm on the ground with 110 men, beating the life from me.
I shake off most of them, to reveal my shattered bones.
My stand, my decision, too; My reasons for it all.
I'll take the way of the others.

How alone we are, until the pain comes along.
How alone we are, until the pain comes along.
Just when you think it's never going to pass,
It feels so good at last.
Just when you think it's never going to pass,
It feels so good at last.
It feels so good at last.
It feels so good at last.
It feels so good at last.

I'm on the ground with 110 men, beating the life from me.
I shake off most of them, to reveal my shattered bones.
My stand, my decision, too; My reasons for it all.
I'll take the way of the others.

Pain!
Pain!
Pain!
Pain!

    General CommentI really like this song. I guess its about that feeling you get when it feels like the world is against you and theres nothing you can do but take the punishment it so unjustly forces on you.

    General CommentDoes anybody know what the two people (woman & man) are saying in the background? It's somewhere before the "How alone we are, until the pain comes along" - part. All I can understand is something like "It's annoying me" - [...] - "It's gonna stop." - [...] - "Then it's the end."
    Thanks!
