SHIP OF PAIN

Hello pain, I feel you here again.
I believe you now that you won’t go away.
I know you too well to mistake you for a friend
As you take up more room every day.

You’re not my lover – get out of my bed.
You act like a sentry barring my way.
I’ve had enough now – leave me for dead
You’re stealing my life anyway.

When you knocked at my door the very first time
You were searching for someone much older.
I said to you then you’re not here to stay,
Yet now every day you grow bolder.

Whenever I weaken you grow strong.
You feed on my misery and tears.
You feast on my passion and silence my song
And replace them with crippling fears.

Everything lovely you claim as fair gain,
As you crack your dispassionate whip.
All that is free is bound up in your chain
And you pull me aboard your foul ship.

You’ve stolen my life – my family and friends.
Locking my prison door tight.
I know that you’re stealing my good will away
With the coming of each empty night.

Hello Pain, I feel you here again.
I believe you now that you won’t go away.
I believe you now that you won’t go away.
