"Pain" as written by and Holly Johnson Brian Philip Nash....
(gill/johnson/nash/o'toole)

This wasted land is gone now and
Swept away , swept away
Better not let the side down
Whirlwinds of time

We can build an ocean
Of hope despair to drown
Sail upon the waves a crashing
Devils to the ground
I'll follow you to fires of hell
And cast my soul in wishing wells
The colours of the sheddred sky
Hear the children sing

Kill the pain, we'll never be the same again
Once we have changed the nature of the game
Of the game
Breaks the chains we can rise up again
Once we've rearranged the nature of the game
Of the game

Don't you forget
What you give is what you get
Take love away there's nothing
Better not let the side down
So God on high has opened up the sky
Up the sky

We can build an ocean
Of hope despair to drown
Sail upon the waves a crashing
Devils to the ground
I'll follow you to fires of hell
And cast my soul in wishing wells
The colours of the sheddred sky
Hear the children sing

Kill the pain, we'll never be the same again
Once we have changed the nature of the game
Of the game
Break the chain we can rise up again
Once we've rearranged the nature of the game
Of the game

We're all walking through the fire
Walking on the nile
Let your spirit fly

This wasted land is gone now and
Swept away , swept away
Better not let the side down
Whirlwinds of time
Sing

We can build an ocean
Of hope despair to drown
Sail upon the waves a crashing
Devils to the ground
The legend of this dying land
The earth is acorched by devil's hand
This place we love can live again
We rise up and sing

Kill the pain, we'll never be the same again
Once we have changed the nature of the game
Of the game
Break the chaing we can rise up again
Once we've rearranged the nature of the game
Of the game

    General Comment"It's the people above you,
    The ones that say that they love you.
    Look at what the world has come to,
    So now it is time to say fuck you.

    If you can- they drug you,
    When no one is staring, they numb you.
    Fill you with terror and crush you,
    Pretend they care as they shove you."

    these lines really speak to me, i think its bout how sometimees the ppl who you look up to in this world are the ones who are leading you down a path that you cant come back from unless there is something so powerful that you'll never go back

    General Commentthis song is so amazing
    i think it's all abou the government sucking so bad
    "Time is getting shorter,
    With these enforced disorders,
    And we get blamed and push around,
    Whose the fucking villian now?"
    almost like they're saying we have to stop he government(s) from binging the world to an end

    General Comment"The necks of this youth,
    With the necks through this noose."

    the youth of the country going to the shitter because of all the crap we are being put through

    "So you strap 'em with a AK,
    Motherfucking mayday."

    the government solving problems with war war war

    General Commentmust say this song is great,
    i personally think this song says youth is sent to war to fix the screw-ups of the world/gov't, then the singer is dieing (maybe wounded, from what hes been through, etc.)

    Ex.
    The necks of this youth,
    With the necks through this noose.
    We're told lies like it's truth,
    And we suspect that is you.

    So you strap 'em with a AK,
    Motherfucking mayday.

    i believe this part is saying that the youth is talked into joining the war, probly by the gov.

    I'm breakin, I feel it!
    I'm naked, I'm kneelin!
    I'm shakin, I'm reelin!
    My God I keep bleedin!
    (plus chorus)

    sounds like shot/wounded and dieing from being in the war, etc

    General CommentThis is the song i heard last after i knew all the lyrics to all their other songs and i must say this is the most intense song they've ever done. They seem to really care about the generations pain and all that hurts us all as adolescents. I think that everytime they hear about a suicide or things like that they write because it affects them so intensly.
