"Pain" as written by Neil/gontier Sanderson and Barry Stock....
Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

You're sick of feeling numb
You're not the only one
I'll take you by the hand
And I'll show you a world that you can understand
This life is filled with hurt
When happiness doesn't work
Trust me, and take my hand
When the lights go out, you'll understand

Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Anger and agony are better than misery
Trust me, I've got a plan
When the lights go up, you'll understand

Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd like to feel pain than nothing
Rather feel pain

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
That you're wounded
(You know, you know, you know, you know)
That I'm here to save you
(You know, you know, you know, you know)
I'm always here for you
(I know, I know, I know, I know)
That you'll thank me later

Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Rather feel pain than nothing at all
Rather feel pain

    My InterpretationI love this song. When I first heard this song on so many AMVs, it got annoying. But when I bought the CD and listned to it a bit later, it made me fall inlove with it. It doesn't get old to me. lol

    Anyway, this song seems like it can have a bunch of meanings... I've come up with about two or three meanings.
    I was just sitting there listening to the music and tried finding some meanings for it and I've come up with some... some are more sensible than the other.

    1. He's singing to someone, about how terrible his life is and for them to see how terrible it is. I get this idea from the lines "This life, is filled with hurt. Where happiness doesn't work." Also how he goes on and on about how he can't get enough of pain.

    2. I think it could also be him using someone for sex for his own reason... though it wouldn't make that much sense. I only got this idea from the lines "Pain, without love", "When the lights go off you will understand", "That I'm here to save you", "I'm always here for you", and "That you'll thank me later." Just a thought.... I could be terribly wrong. lol

    3. He could be encouraging someone to enjoy being in pain. The fact he stated that the person is sick of being numb and saying he'll take their hand and show them a place they'll understand makes it seem like he's going to try making them like pain, or at least see how it feel.

    Just my thoughts o.o ...
