Why is life’s pain so inevitable?
The sadness; the aching; the breaking heart
Is enough to make a person feel dull
And tear somebody completely apart.

The flaming fire inside of the lung
Sends burning, stinging smoke up to the eye,
And now the pain has finally begun.
The smoke has drawn hot tears, making you cry.

Why does the pain never come to a stop?
It pushes to be the main emotion
And somehow it always ends up on top.
How is there such powerful devotion?

Pain reminds us we’re human, makes us strive;
Pain is a reminder: You are alive.
