  • I wait in the dark
    Through whispering winds
    I hide, lie in wait
    Because I know how it ends

    In circles of hell
    The weight of the world
    Even in my dreams
    I can't escape from myself

    I shut every door but the right one
    I fought the devil and he won

    There's gotta be more
    'Cause this life is insane
    Gotta turn this around
    And find the purpose for pain
    There's so much to lose
    Yeah, there's so much at stake
    Gotta turn this around
    And find the purpose for pain
    The purpose for pain

    Fell into the light
    Thrown from the abyss
    Screamed so many nights
    Not going out like this

    I shut every door but the right one
    I fought the devil and he won

    There's gotta be more
    'Cause this life is insane
    Gotta turn this around
    And find the purpose for pain
    There's so much to lose
    Yeah, there's so much at stake
    Gotta turn this around
    And find the purpose for pain
    The purpose for pain

    Yeah
    There's purpose for this pain
    There's purpose for this pain
    There's purpose for pain, yeah

    There's gotta be more
    'Cause life is insane
    Gotta turn this around
    And find the purpose for pain
    There's so much to lose
    Yeah, there's so much at stake
    Gotta turn this around
    And find the purpose for pain
    The purpose for pain
