Divide the Pain

Divide The Pain by Rap Carnage
I’m not goin’ back
and if you try to take me there,
I’m sure to attack

I’ve been beat down, stepped on, called names and spit on
And everything I tried to do right, was called wrong…

And these were people in my family
No wonder you see demons when you’re lookin’ at me
All of the wicked things I once did become
The pain I should’ve left where I came from

But I’ve carried it a little too far with me
I took all of my troubles to the bar with me
And tried to drink ’em away just like my father did
As I watched him beat my mother when I was just a kid

I also smoked some love, and took some pills
With a little bit of acid to spike my thrills
And I was livin’ insane, on the edge and far gone
But then I stumbled into life and learned to hold on…

Blame the world if you wish,
But counting tears will not make you rich,
Just move on, don’t explain
Find yourself and Divide the Pain…

I can see the past so brightly
Almost just as clear as the day right before me
Reminiscing as I’m dreaming
I don’t know should I laugh or cry from what I’m seeing

I have learned a lot from this
but it’s also spawned an anger that’s translated through my fists
And, it’s followed me so long
I’ve been in and out of jail for doing others wrong

A completely violent human being
Knockin’ people out even before I could see ’em
I thought, when will it end?
I was making enemies of all my freinds

Still, I chose to blame
Everyone else except my name
Until the question came
Do I wanna live the rest of my life this way?

Blame the world if you wish,
But counting tears will not make you rich,
Just move on, don’t explain
Find yourself and Divide the Pain… (x2)

Have you been hurtin too?
Living a life insane
Are all your memories
Filling you up with pain?

Are you quick to anger?
Is your temper hot?
Do you wish that
Your childhood would lay to rot?

Are you weeping?
and do you wonder why
you were ever born?
and do you wanna die?

wanting so bad to leave and get out of here?
hoping all ther hurt will just dissapear?

Well it won’t; so stop crying
And get on your feet and start flying
take what is yours leave behind the mess
Ignore the world and find your success

no more naming no more blaming
take the good the bad don’t escape it
All the crying, all the bleeding
You will overcome all this weakness!

Blame the world if you wish,
But counting tears will not make you rich,
Just move on, don’t explain
Find yourself and Divide the Pain.

…take what is yours leave behind the mess
Ignore the world and find your success

no more naming no more blaming
take the good the bad don’t escape it
All the crying, all the bleeding
You will overcome all this weakness!
