"Pain" is a track of the Soulfly album Primitive, released in 2000. This is the second Soulfly song where the guest Chino Moreno of Deftones is featured, again tributing to Max Cavalera's friend and stepson Dana Wells, whose life was cut short, as well as Cavalera's father who was killed by a heart attack.
The song title was inspired from Max's pains he went through from deaths of family members. The lyrics, written by Max himself, and guests Chino Moreno and Grady Avenell, is about covering up murder. The quoted last two lines of the lyrics are voice samples of Dana Wells prior to his death.
Speak up - you know what is up Code of silence?! Who set you up?! Some shit so wrong in this world It's all fucked up now you're gone Speak up - you know what went on How could you let it go? It's murder you covered up Stained blood on your soul Down on my knees Hands stretched to heaven above Christ this pain is hard to live with Don't fill my heart with love Engulf my heart with vengeance You need to see our pain Don't fill this heart with love The truth needs to be told You can't mask Pain My pain Our Pain You can't mask Pain My pain Our pain "Fuck you... Friday I was freaking out"
