The Suffering I've Known

It's about how easy it is to wrap yourself in your own despair and to feel like it's the only feeling you should ever know. It's about humanity's capacity for self-deprecation

It’s easy to doubt and to destroy ourselves

To shatter our hearts and claim we’re different

How easy it is to find a black cloud in our hearts

How easy to create our own little piece of hell

 

I’m another tragic soul upon a pedestal

I’m another marching to a different drum

Another angel sentenced to fall

Another heart that’s lost to the dark

 

Because all that I’ve known is pain

All that I’ve known is emptiness

 

The skies in my own mind a pale grey

My friends warned me against self-destructive love

But I just love to repeat the same mistakes

The beasts in my heart despise the dark

And fear the days

 

She gives me another reason to doubt myself

But when she’s gone my heart breaks again

I’m bound to the cycle of suffering

Bound to feel the endless despair again

 

Because all that I’ve known is pain

All that I’ve known is emptiness

The suffering I’ve known is a comfort to me

The suffering I’ve known is a release to me

 

It’s so easy to endure and to despair

To feel wrecked and broken in time

To believe that there’s no-one left to care

To think that I’ve already lived the best of my days

 

Because all that I’ve known is pain

All that I’ve known is emptiness

The suffering I’ve known is a comfort to me

The suffering I’ve known is a release to me

The End
