"Feel the Pain" as written by and Joseph Donald Mascis Jr.....
I feel the pain of everyone
Then I feel nothing
I feel the pain of everyone
Then I feel nothing

I feel the pain of everyone
Then I feel nothing
I feel the pain of everyone
Then I feel nothing

Is it up to me?
You won't wait to see
Screwed us both again
About as close as you dare

I feel the pain of everyone
Then I feel nothing
I feel the pain of everyone
Then I feel nothing

Is it up to me?
You won't wait to see
Screwed us yet again
About as close as you dare

Hey now, take it back
Get off me, you're sad
Trailin' on your scene
Just try and keep it clean

    General CommentThis song is easily understood. Like when people talk to you about their problems..
    sometiems you can empathize, other times you don't care.

    General CommentI think of the "then I feel nothing" part as getting completely wrecked on whatever so he doesn't have to feel so depressed.

    General Commenti always thought of it as the singer being someone who has everyone telling them their problems, to the point where they can't feel anything for themselves. essentially they've "screwed us both again,"

    its like all their problems have burdened yourself with everyone elses problems that you end up digging a hole for yourself in the process. its the most depressing feeling ever.

    This is exactly how I've been feeling lately. Depression is a bitch, man.

    General CommentYeah, Eatcarpet has got it right. I don't know if dinosaur jr wrote it about depression....some of the other lyrics don't really suggest it...but those two lines are really identifiable with that feeling

    General CommentI think it's about someone that gets everyone's baggage piled on him and then eventually he can't deal anymore. He becomes numb and miserable.

    General CommentI think this song was written about the most jaded person in the world, at the time. Definitely the best song ever, if it's the only dinosaur jr. song that's ever been heard.

    If i had people to talk about my problems with I wouldn't, but if I did I would hope they felt nothing afterwards. You don't make your problem someone else's' by talking about it? maybe?
