Failed, I writhe
Hell, I tried
Close your eyes
Force a smile

What you say
Comes your way
Kneel and pray
Claim your fate

Pain mandatory
No pain, no glory
Pain is protein
Suffering is sweet

It’s getting real
Please plug me in
This was not the deal
She’s done me in
I’m falling out
Please hold me in
Faced with the void
Blood growing thin

What you’re told
The more you see
The less you know

Heed words of worth
Touch of truth tends to hurt
Pain is protein
Suffering is sweet

You’ve bit the dirt before
Better learn to love the floor

Why pick the pieces up
If the puzzle is enough

Have you heard the news
We are bound to lose

That’s the fucking point
You’re supposed to lose a tooth or two


Nothing seems to get me high
I’m stuck in low tide
So at home on the ground
Did it for the comedown
