"Pain" as written by and Gary Wehrkamp Carl Cadden James....
Of all the stories that have ever been written
I've been assailed right off the page
Winter fell across the floor in silence
I just stopped and wondered why
Well, it's a cold and strange sad situation
Off the shores, tossed by the waves
My every other word misunderstood why
I'd ever speak out loud again

Clinging on so tight, I bled my hands
I draw the shades and hang my head and run
All those simple things essential to me
You cast aside to go and be alone

You can't see the way I grieve
Love's the air I need to breathe
I hope you understand
Just need to find myself again
I see no choice but leaving
So tired of flying alone

On the battlefield,
you were never there beside me
Who will I be if I recover from this?
I'm not the enemy
There's so much good inside me
The real "you" left and never came back home

Round and round, oh, there is a rhythm
where two hearts should meet
A sense of comfort and a point of common ground
To have and then to hold,
and then to cry and then to break upon the waves
You see me through dark eyes that color me wrong
Immersed inside a world where charity dies

And what of all that talk
of how two go become one?
And I hope you understand
Just need to find some grace again
There seems to be no reason
Rejected off and away

On the battlefield,
you were never there beside me
Who will I be should I recover from this?
There are no enemies,
just death of love inside me
The bitter truth of this has come back home
