lyrics The Agonist – Thank You, Pain

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 an 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
Love 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 guilt, not pain
Is love the same?
This senseless argument in vain erodes my sense of shame
Who’s to blame?
