"The Suffering" as written by William Roy Francis, Nicholas Alexander Wiggins, Angel Dejesus Ibarra and Jacob Samuel Davison....
Burn! Your! Friends! [Repeat: x4]

Living is easy
With your eyes closed by and by
Do you wake up
Do you wake up and cry at night
The evil inside
That breaks right through the light
With hard times and long goodbyes

Take me
Into your dark dream
And scream so loud this place
Fills with misery
Suffer the kiss
And take me out alive.

We are those things that you despise
(We will sing)
We are the suffering alive

Burn! Your! Friends! [Repeat: x4]

Shadows and hearts
In which to carry your rule aloud
Can you believe we are
The shock of existence now
Something's amiss
And this generation has been found
We're brought to the underground

Waste me to your dark dream
And taste me until all I see
A thousand sparks we fake
Love futility
I see the rain

We are those things that you despise
(We will sing)
We are the suffering alive tonight
(Suffering)

We are those things that you despise
(We will sing)
We are he suffering alive tonight

This time we're coming home worthless
This time, this time alive [Repeat: x8]

We will sing

We are those things that you despise
(We will sing)
We are the suffering alive tonight
(Suffering)

We are those things that you despise
(We will sing)
We are the suffering alive

    General Commentthis song is beautiful! i think that the main message of the song is talking about the punk/emo/different kids that are looked down upon by society. that is evident in the lyrics. However in the part were it says "and taste me until all i see a thousand sparks we fake love futility" i think that he's talking about sex for some reason.

    General CommentYeah it's about how certain groups of people always have some sort of message attached to them like 'oh if you're a cheerleader you must be stuck up and rich' or 'oh you like rainbows you must be gay'... not just the goth or punk kids. Any group of people will have a stereotype about them. I think it's also about how depression and how it can mix in with people's lives.

    General CommentWell in reply to what Aidenpunkgirl says.
    I agree with her about the fact that this song is talking about different groups/cliques of people and how everyone should just be a family and get along like wiL says at like every show. But the part where it says, "A thousand sparks We fake love futility" they are pretty much saying 'some people think it's worthless for us to try to love each other because it will never happen' because futility means not worth it, so saying to fake love futility it's say it's pointless to pretend because it's worthless, it's not going to happen.

    General Commentby the way, whoever typed up these lyrics, it's "A thousand sparks We fake love futility" not utility. I have the lyrics booklet and utility doesn't make sense.
