Of Mice & Men - Pain Lyrics

I am sick of this place of death
With a pace that’s set
And you know the pessimistic bend
Just to watch you break
Practice what you preach

Separate skin from the bone
Digging at my flesh
Like a schizophrenic with a blade
Fingers tracing scars
Mapping out reminders of just how much I can take

Pressure in my brain
My shoulders take the weight
Back’s about to break

Every day that I awake
In my blood and through my veins
Now there’s nothing left that you can take away from me


Because I’ve seen it before
I’ve lived it before
I’ve been there before
So don’t you ever underestimate me

Daily death
Crooning in my ear
Things I wanna hear
Turn my head and bite my tongue
Spitting blood on my pre-determined grave
This is all a game

Pressure in my brain
My shoulders take the weight
Back’s about to break
This is all a game

Every day that I awake
In my blood and through my veins
Now there’s nothing left that you can take away from me

Every day that I awake
In my blood and through my veins
Now there’s nothing left, nothing left that you can take from me

Pain, pain, pain, pain

Footprints in the sand
That can’t be washed away
It breeds while we’re asleep
It feeds when we awake

Burdens of the flesh
Our bodies are so weak
We seek the spirit’s truth
To turn the other cheek

Turning the other cheek to see a world broken, lost and vain
How can you ever look at someone else the same way?
We all bleed
The human race
Have some empathy
We are all in pain

If we commiserate
Then we can share the weight
We are all the same
We are all in

Every day that I awake
In my blood and through my veins
Now there’s nothing left that you can take away from me

Every day that I awake
In my blood and through my veins
Now there’s nothing left, nothing left that you can take from me

    Why so many dislikes???

  3. Krista Seaton

    I have a disease called Familial Spastic Paraparesis... I understand similar pain. I will deteriorate as I get older. I'm only 21 and am borderline wheelchair bound completely due to muscle weakness, spastisity and pain when I walk. It is a horrible, hereditary disease that effects my mother and effected my grandfather.. May he rest in peace.. I may not have the same disease Austin, but I feel your PAIN. I PRAY daily!!

  4. sajin rahman

  8. Kit Kat


  9. 202cardline

    "We seek the spirits' truth, to turn the other cheek" That's some raw shit right there

  10. Eduardo Diaz


  11. 202cardline

    The fact he gets excited over stuffed squids almost adds to the point of this song; he has Marfan syndrome, so he has extreme physical pain that you wouldn't know by looking at him. Someone can be the sweetest bubbliest person, but there's the feeling this song tries to represent inside them at all times. Sometimes you're hopeful and happy and doing well, but sometimes it's just exhausting and this feeling rises to the top. The frustration, the loneliness, the pain. A big part of surviving a chronic condition like that is knowing how to deal with those emotions so they're not consuming at all times, because it'll be the death of you.

  12. ACE Music

    Vocal Cover! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qiKddTAQ7A I've always loved this Slipknot-styled OM&M song! But I've wanted to hear it with the older, more visceral Austin Carlile. I hope I accomplished just that while making it my own!

  13. nyako 109

    I'm watching in 2019 and I still scared of this song ;-;

    nyako 109

    Sad to know that we lost one of the greatest metalcore singers on the world

  17. [ Stacked Rubbish ]

    the last good of mice and men song

    David Clayton

    I agree, this album was shit but the one after was pure trash and made me not like their music anymore

  18. Strict-9 studios

    I can't let this song go even if I tried. I'll listen to this forever. So much power, resentment, anguish. This song is humanity in audio form.

  23. Tokyoghoul 1994

    You can really feel Austin's pain in his eyes as he sings/Screams about the pain

  24. Evan Pomarleau

  59. GimmeAllUrMoney

    I've been letting the YouTube algorithm system choose songs for me. I listen to Slipknot, Whitechapel, Mitch Lucker's Suicide Silence, Emmure, Starset....And, I'm not disappointed.

    Honestly if you're looking for new stuff to listen to just let YouTube choose songs for you.

    Patrick Patrick

    Try In Hearts Wake, Parkway Drive and Thy Art Is Murder

  60. Mr Max Dimi

    I miss Austin Carlile in of mice and men. I wish he was still in the band.

  73. Evangelina Holzwart

  74. Claudio Correia De Souza

    Austin could be a nice option for LP, it's not better than Chester, but could be a good option.

    Kiowa Spencer

    I agree honestly.

  75. jacob morson

    Just hearing this now? 1st time. Why? Did it take this long

  76. Danny Wood

    I've had recurring depression since my Dad passed away 13 years ago, exacerbated by my stepfathers death a few years later and my best friend taking his own life at only 16. I'm now a 20something old adult, a university graduate, and I still feel like I'm in pain every day. Austin signed my arm in Manchester and I got it tattooed over, and I swear being able to look at my arm and see Austin's signature there is the only thing that can help me some days. If it wasn't for Austin, Aaron, Alan, Phil and Tino there's a good chance I wouldn't even be here right now. I don't know about my future, whether it might actually be worth living in, but what I do know is I owe these guys everything for helping me make it as far as I have. For anyone else in a similar situation; please stay strong, you're truly not alone.

  77. hyst

    tbh, this video is so creepy lol

  78. Remember Me

    Am I that weirdo who cant pick a favorite genre? I love Country, hard rock, pop and very very little rap.

    Kiowa Spencer

    Me too!! The only rapper I like it Ghostemane.

  79. Chronic_Breakdown

    Austin is so awesome. But, Aaron is an incredible vocalist as well.

  93. AngelEater Studios

    I thought this was gonna be a cover of the Three Days Grace song. They'd do a good job on that.

    Infinity Percival

    They probably would, though I don't think Adam Gontier would be too happy if they did that. lol https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rKsjNYgO9eE
