Pain Is A Master

Album: L'Enfant Sauvage (2012)


  • Gojira's vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Joe Duplantier explained the background of this song to Artist Direct: "The meaning is that if you don't have someone to show you the way in difficult times, pain itself will show you the way," he said. "In order to survive, we do things in difficult times when we suffer or feel lost. We understand things because it is hard. We fight to survive. 'Surviving' is a big word."
