A Different Kind of Pain

I received a promo copy of Cold's upcoming cd A Different Kind of Pain a week or two ago. Upon first listen I thought they had sold out and went radio rock, which really saddened me since I hate it when bands do that, but then I listened to it a few more times and realized that maybe Scooter, their lead singer, is simply less angry and more sad. Listening to his lyrics, he feels so much more lost, hurt, and full of pain. Call me an emo sap, but I find myself relating to this cd more than just about any other cd I've listened to lately. The last cd that resonated so strongly with me was Mae's Everglow. Anyways, I know a lot of people are going to think that Cold's new cd is a really weak effort, but I love it and I know I'll be listening to it for weeks to come. I'm going to try to get them featured over at Decoy, but I'm sure the rest of the staff with axe the idea. Anyhow, here are the lyrics to my favorite song off of A Different Kind of Pain.

Feel It in Your Heart

Can't run away from love if you cannot feel
Everything falls apart in a tragedy
I am so far away from gone
I just want to be here
Everyone forms a part in my symphony

Can you feel this in your heart?
Can you take it to your soul?
I don't want you to pretend
I don't want to be alone

Feels like I'm torn apart
And I cannot bleed
Caught in the web you made
This just can't be real
I am so far away from gone
I just want to be here
Everyone falls apart in this tragedy
I don't want to be alone
Inside I've changed
Every day I'll live through this alone
