On the board and into the light
A creature presses me to go
For the same thing and this old pain
Catching my tears with laughter
And on the mat rots a young body
Where fate directs its puppets
For the same thing and this old pain
I know at last nothing's for free

On the board and into nothingness
everybody knows what remains at the end
the same thing and this old pain
driving me slowly into insanity
and on the mat rages the same war
still scorching my heart
the same thing and this old pain
I know at last

I will fuck!

[No more] - this old pain
[No more]
[No more] - this old pain

On the board and into the light
a creature presses me to go
for the same thing and the old grief
cathing my tears with laughter
and on the mat rots a young body
where fate directs its puppets
for the same thing and the old grief
I know at last

[No more] - this old pain

    General Commentwell the I want to/will fuck line kinda give the whole thing away to me, its about someone who wants to have sex with a real person, not just masturbate like he is doing now, he feels like his young body is rotting and fate is making him touch himself like a puppet. He wants a real person in his bed
