I wait for the pain
It always comes again
And I don't know why...
And I don't care why anymore.
Saved in the end
By a long lost friend
And I don't know why
And I don't care why anymore.

And the rain it keeps on coming
And the pain it keeps at bay for another day
Home.

So thank you Jean Michael
I'm on my way to hell
And I don't know why
But I don't care why anymore.

    General CommentSounds simple to me. Thing's will continue to happen and may go to shit no matter what you do. Just finally letting go and stop caring one way or another. The friend could be a real person or it could be talking metaphorically about music or something else "saving" you from falling into the same hole like before.

    General CommentIt's pretty clear to me that this album deals with uncertainty and frustration towards why we exist, religion, and the like. This song is kind of saying to me, 'I don't really know what to think anymore about this, and now I don't want to care either.' The title also lends to the mood -- on the outside he's just accepting the notion that he doesn't know truth, but on the inside, he still protests. OR maybe it's referring to rebelling against the feeling the truth must be known? Either way, it seems to be about just allowing your mind to rest from continual existential crisis/angst (something maybe I should take the advice of).
