THREE DAYS GRACE LYRICS:

"Pain"

Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

You're sick of feeling numb
You're not the only one
I'll take you by the hand
And I'll show you a world that you can understand
This life is filled with hurt
When happiness doesn't work
Trust me and take my hand
When the lights go out you will understand

Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Anger and agony
Are better than misery
Trust me I've got a plan
When the lights go off you will understand

Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing
Rather feel pain

I know (I know I know I know I know)
That you're wounded
You know (You know you know you know you know)
That I'm here to save you
You know (You know you know you know you know)
I'm always here for you
I know (I know I know I know I know)
That you'll thank me later

Pain, without love
Pain, can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Rather feel pain than nothing at all
Rather feel pain

Guess my mind is in the gutter -- I interpreted that song -- it has a great beat, BTW -- as a call for a little S&M.

Reminds me of another classic: "C'mon, baby, make it hurt so good."

I expected some people to interpret the song this way, but not you eastcoastdweller – LOL. However; I must admit – when I first heard the song, I thought the same thing and found myself embarrassed. Then the lyrics grasped me like a familiar reality. First if the song was about sadism and masochism, one would not need to wait for the lights to go out, nor have a plan. Plus, S&M is perhaps entering into the psychological aspect. Then one must also take into consideration without the gutter concept; other psychological behaviors such as self-mutilation. Therefore; to look at the lyrics in a rather poetic form, what than might one construe? Hence again I reiterate the later question:
“Pain without love, rather feel pain than nothing at all” Agree or Disagree? Why?

Which also brings up another good question, in the following verse what could the plan be?:

Trust me I've got a plan
When the lights go off you will understand

Maybe this song “Pain” was used in a Movie and a Reader can enlighten us to that. However; notably this will merely be the movie’s explanation for the lyrics.

To me, the operative line seems to be:

Anger and agony
Are better than misery

There seems to be a contradiction set up between physical pain and the spiritual/emotional variety. My best guess is that it's better to feel the physical variety, which in some ways the singer equates with vitality, than the emotional kind, which leaves you numb.

But that's just a guess. This may be like an inkblot test where we all interpret it differently.

-jeane michelle culp response:

Well verbalized and Thank you franscud, this is the poetic depth I was hoping for! As the days whence Shakespearean Poems were discussed! Passion...!

In re to the implied psychology, I concur: all poetry, lyrics, ‘art’ should be - to each “their own interpreted inkblot”. Thus I continue to welcome and encourage further individual interpretations about this song.

I interpret is rather as a whole - feeling anything is better than feeling nothing at all. That's just me.

-jeane michelle culp response:

Good point cooper, I must admit; I agree that sometimes – “feeling anything is better than feeling nothing at all”. Thanks for your comment!
