lyrics

I asked for its name
And it said unto me,
“You know my name,
You've always known.”
Then any sense of my power
Dissolved into its awful form

It travels in reflections
A vision of despair,
Measureless sorrow
I stood in its shadow
As the unsound ate reason
Terror subdued me,
and it wallowed

A simple look
Crippled me with grief
And I knew
This was the monument
That causes our pain
The pain of living
The monument
That causes our pain

Skies so dark
And the rain
It never ends
Pooling sadness
Faded daylight in Payne’s grey
This vision of misery grew
The way it split the sky
Its peak pierced my chest
My breath tapered off
Like the unsympathetic apex
The crushing presence of its aura
Draws color from the world around
Desires ebb, I fall, I cannot move

A simple look
Crippled me with grief
And I knew
This was the monument
That causes our pain
The pain of living
The monument
That causes our pain
