    Hands round your knees
    Curl up on the floor
    Know that your body
    Wont take anymore
    Know the next blow
    Will take your breath
    Causeing your lungs
    To spasam your death
    Accept it
    This knee is for you
    You kept it
    Now follow through
    The bruises will tell
    The time that you gave
    The hits that you took
    Until you felt pain
    The bruises will tell
    They've painted your game
    Your ribs start to swell
    Establish your name
    Whats sad is you crave it
    You need it to give
    You need it to justify
    Reasons to live
    You need it to know
    Its ok to go
    Its ok to loosen
    Accept the next blow
    Brace for the impact
    Bend for the kick
    Knowing the evidence
    Will document
    Let your heart beat
    Let your mind see
    Let your attack
    Be your last swing
    Let the pain bleed your weakness
    They'll see what it means
    Understanding for once
    What tolerance brings
    Know that you're liveing
    Only to see
    The pain that your giveing
    Belongs to me.

  6. We are studious in our suffering

    But it bears paying attention to

    Not all have such courage...to be naked before it
