Thank You, Pain

The Agonist

So, lowly criminal, please, tell me, how do you plead?
Now, honorable judges, ladies, gentlemen of the jury
Please allow me to present my case
Ha! What case can you possibly present
To rip a man from his family, faith, and friends? Defense?
Listen before you convict, you see
I never did intend to ruin anything

Intent is a guilty conscience's white flag against pride
So I find you guilty of the crimes
I know, although I don't believe
It's not only my afterlife
I bereave appeals will be denied

The line of duty calls for enforcement of laws
So you're our property now
Intelligence has failed you somehow
Oh, what a shame you play this game

Through senses, what can we explain?
Not joy, not guilt, not pain
Is love the same?
This senseless argument in vain erodes my sense of shame
Who's to blame?
Thank you, pain (for crippling my body)
God bless suffering
Thank you, pain (for freeing my brain)
For preventing me from returning to the source again

So it shall be
Now do you see the error of your ways?
Of rats and men you speak, standing up tall but you are weak
A smiling thief

We are all murderers, you see?
But you let taboo human chemistry blind your needs
Live is greed
Logic won't concede
Think about the statistics you feed
Think before you plead

Through senses, what can we explain?
Not joy, not fear, not pain
Is love the same?
This reckless argument in vain erodes my sense of shame
Who's to blame?

Thank you, pain (for crippling my body)
God bless suffering
Thank you, pain (for freeing my brain)
For preventing me from returning to the source again
