Love-Hate-Sex-Pain

Album: The Oracle (2010)
  • In this life I'm me
    Just sitting here alone
    By the way I tried to say I'd be there
    For you
    Walk the silent emptiness
    That leads me by my hands
    And throw away
    What I don't understand as a man

    Love-hate-sex-pain
    It's complicating me sometimes
    This love-hate-sex-pain
    Is underestimating life

    And I wonder as I tear away my skin
    It's taken me so long to stitch
    These wounds from where I've been
    And mother please don't bury me
    I'm waiting for my life
    It's hard to say I will be complete
    Before I die

    Love-hate-sex-pain
    It's complicating me sometimes
    This love-hate-sex-pain
    Is underestimating life

    Don't you worry please
    Don't leave me
    Because I slowly slip away
    Though love hate sex and pain
    I fall away into
    Love hate sex and pain

    Love-hate-sex-pain
    It's complicating me sometimes
    This love-hate-sex-pain
    Is underestimating life

    Love-hate-sex-pain
    It's complicating me sometimes
    This love-hate-sex-pain
    Is underestimating life Writer/s: JAMES SHANNON LARKIN, ROB MERRILL, SALVATORE P. ERNA, TONY ROMBOLA

  • Zack from Noblesville, InGreat, awesome, bad@$$ song.
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjThe Lyrics in the 1st verse should be, "Walk beside an emptiness/that leads me by my hand." I think that lyric excerpt is even in the booklet!
