"Down Deep Into the Pain"
Steve Vai

So naive, so innocent,
Thrust in a world too intense.
Flesh is week but the soul is strong,
And you will bleed but youíll carry on.

Yes you need your pain
Life is pain.
I could hold your hand,
But you must take your pain.

I donít need sacrifice, I donít need advice
This hurt surrounds me like a dissonance
Anger is power
I use it to protect myself from insanity.

You gotta go down deep down into the pain
Let it purge your soul like flesh to a razor blade
Dig down deep into the pain
Surrender surrender
Drift into Euphoria.

Time may never heal the wounds.
Hearts bleed hard even the sun cries moon.
Fate is tragic just for heavenís sake,
The good Lord giveth and taketh away.

ĎCause you need your pain.
God have us pain.
I can hold you in my arms.
But I canít take away your pain.

I am not long for this world please
Save me from myself and my discipline

Lashing out with tight fists in despair
My plight is running from reality.

You gotta go down deep down into the pain
Let it purge your soul like flesh to a razor blade
Dig down deep into the pain
Surrender surrender
Drift into Euphoria.

The falling will be gentle and soothing but the
awakening will be as riveting as an explosion.
Eyes open to total darkness, body floating in
encompassing tranquillity, and then the voice came,
ďHear this voice and know that it will be with
you always.Ē
Phantoms of opulent auras emblazed in a
repulsively lush turmoil if incomprehensible
vastness, dance in a sea of timeless infinity.
Is this the voice of my God? This is the voice
of liberation. Man youíve got to be kidding me.
Go forth and rise to life rise
You will have the freedom to think
And choose as you wish
What do I choose?
You choose in the moment.
Your life will be shaped around your choices

And the fight is on
Every minute of every day
Every action in every way
Is every creatureís expression to
Be one with its creator

From a simple prayer
To a senseless murder.

Where do I find you when I need you?
You will search and you will question.
Worship me in your joy and curse me in your pain.

You will fight, kill and live in my name
But, I have no name.
Always keep in your thoughts that life is good
But do not fear death
For I am closer to you than your very own breath
And I love you
And I want you to know me
Now beautiful life awaits you
And when I count to 3
You will awake and you will
Remember everything Iíve said
