"Send The Pain Below" as written by and Peter/loeffler Loeffler....
I liked,
Having hurt,
So send the pain below,
Where I need it.

You used to beg me,
To take,
Care of things,
And smile at the thoughts,
Of me failing.

But long before,
Having hurt,
I'll send the pain below,
I'll send the pain below.

Much like suffocating,
Much like suffocating,
Much like suffocating (I'll send the pain below)
Much like suffocating (I'll send the pain below).

You used run me away,
All while laughing,
Then cry about that fact,
Til my returns.

But long before,
Having hurt,
I'll send the pain below,
I'll send the pain below.

Much like suffocating,
Much like suffocating,
Much like suffocating (I'll send the pain below)
Much like suffocating (I'll send the pain below)
Much like suffocating

I can't feel my chest (chest, chest),
Anymore,
Drop down,
'Cause I'm in
I can't feel my chest (chest, chest)
Drop down!

I liked,
Having hurt,
So send the pain below,
So send the pain below (Much like suffocating) (I liked),
So send the pain below (Much like suffocating) (Having hurt)
So send the pain below (Much like suffocating)
So send the pain below (Much like suffocating)
So send the pain below

    General Comment God dammit, you people have no sense when it comes to the actual meaning of the song. Alright, this song is obviously about this guy's experience with one bitch of a girlfriend and how he put up with it incident after incident after incident. Until he finally dumps her and looks back at the experience saying "I liked being hurt", so he doesn't like being hurt anymore. And the suffocating was forcing himself to stay with her despite the she gave him.

    General CommentBasically this perfectly describes the process of going numb. "But long before having hurt, I'd send the pain below." This is the "grin and bear it" mentality as you "send the pain below." After having done this repeatedly..."much like suffocating," eventually leads to..."I can't feel my chest, drop down, because I am," until you are comfortably numb and reflect upon a time when you could feel, even if it hurt; "I liked having hurt." Their ability to so concisely express it is amazing! Great band!

    General CommentThe lines...

    You used to run me away while laughing
    Then cry about the fact till I returned

    ...they would have been the perfect voice-over for a relationship I was in a few months back. It was a constant on/off back-n-forth battle. Push & Pull... etc.

    Chevelle rules. I can't wait to see them live (again)

    General CommentThere's an error in these lyrics. It should be ...

    I like having hurt

    instead of

    Hard lives have been hurt
