Suffer No More

Candy looks down
She says I don't know what to do
I swallowed every word
And none of it was true
And every cut
And every wound
And every prayer
In every room
This time's too hard
And the end couldn't come too soon
Don't wanna suffer no more
Don't wanna suffer no more

Tommy stood there
With a giant tear in his eye
To break down or complain
Well he really wasn't the type
He never read a book by Marx
But he knew by now the end was tied to the start
Don't wanna suffer no more

And all we want today
Is something like a fair shake
And all we want tomorrow
Is a ladder that won't fall away
Or be thrown away
Don't wanna suffer no more
Don't wanna suffer no more
Don't wanna suffer no more
