"Desire the Pain" as written by and Ryan Clark....
This is your dying will
Forced to feed, and over again.
Flies to filth, greed, wealth
And we take what they give,
Every piece that we can hold
Is it all that we are?
Is it all we seek to be?

Soiled hands will meet us there
Choking the light from our souls

I desire the pain
I desire the weight
And I will face my grave

Draining the life from our veins
Into a curse that we despise
What a sickening way to spend our lives

Soiled hands will meet us there
Choking the light from our souls

I desire the pain
I desire the weight
And I will face my grave
I desire remorse
I desire release
And I will chase this away

Away

I desire the pain
I desire the weight
And I will face my grave
I desire remorse
I desire release
And I will chase this away
And I will chase this away

I desire the pain

    General Commentsurprised no one has commented, personally one of my favorite songs in the album.

    My two cents, in a nutshell...
    It starts off speaking about how we all get caught up in worldly trappings..
    After that, it's about him aspiring to cut off his worldly trappings and to live a more Godly life in Christ, bearing the cross(I desire the weight)to reach his full potential.
    "I will face my grave" Generally, when you're sinning, or caught up in a trapping..not thinking about death, or the consequences; basically running from the grave.. Thus he's saying the opposite here.
    "I desire remorse, I desire release" Seems to be about regretting that sin/trapping, and seeking release via overcoming it or death...or perhaps "release" is death with the positive outlook of being united with Christ. I'd prefer the latter IMO.

    Herp derp seems I temporarily forgot what nutshell means.
