"Pain" as written by and Nick/wright Pollock....
Eyes on this flesh the windows of my soul
From these I look inside and see it all
Thorns in my heart and needles in my brain
Is pain infectious or is it from the core
My fate is hiding in the dark
Or it's my mind that steals the light
Heavy conscience on my shoulder
i Can't hold on any longer
Cold ice now
Darkness, kill my pain
I asked my father why he passed me by
He said I'm always here and watching you
Don't be afraid when you have lost your way
Follow the signs and they'll be leading you
Why do I fear to leave the lie
When time has come to say goodbye
Heavy conscience on my shoulder
i Can't hold on any longer
Cold ice now
Darkness, kill my pain
"WE ARE THE ANCIENT SAGES, FOR WHOM THE SIGN IS SHOWN
FORGOTTEN ONES FROM THE REALM OF THE UNKNOWN
WITHOUT A NAME OR TRACE, IN DEATH WE SANK
AND IN THE BOOK OF TIME OUR NAMES ARE BLANK"

    General CommentThe word suffering is sometimes used in the narrow sense of physical pain, but more often it refers to mental or emotional pain, or more often yet to pain in the broad sense, i.e. to any unpleasant feeling, emotion or sensation.

    The word pain usually refers to physical pain, but it is also a common synonym of suffering.

    The words pain and suffering are often used both together in different ways. For instance, they may be used as interchangeable synonyms. Or they may be used in 'contradistinction' to one another, as in "pain is inevitable, suffering is optional", or "pain is physical, suffering is mental". Or they may be used to define each other, as in "pain is physical suffering", or "suffering is severe physical or mental pain".

    Qualifiers, such as mental, emotional, psychological, and spiritual, are often used for referring to certain types of pain or suffering. In particular, 'mental pain (or suffering)' may be used in relationship with 'physical pain (or suffering)' for distinguishing between two wide categories of pain or suffering. A first caveat concerning such a distinction is that it uses 'physical pain' in a sense that normally includes not only the 'typical sensory experience' of 'physical pain' but also other unpleasant bodily experiences such as itching or nausea. A second caveat is that the terms physical or mental should not be taken too literally: physical pain or suffering, as a matter of fact, happens through conscious minds and involves emotional aspects, while mental pain or suffering happens through physical brains and, being an emotion, involves important physiological aspects.

    Words that are roughly synonymic with suffering, in addition to pain, include distress, sorrow, unhappiness, misery, affliction, woe, ill, discomfort, displeasure, disagreeableness, unpleasantness
