Vocari Dei
Pain of Salvation Lyrics


With overlaid spoken recordings

    My wish is just selfish, maybe ignorant. But I beg you to put back the sense in my life.
    Are you there? I, I, I just called to see if you're there. Sometimes, sometimes I feel upbeat, sometimes I hate you, mostly, I, I just wonder if you're there. Are you there?
    God, If you are love, then why are we subjected to an increasing injustice throughout the world? Do you show us love by tormenting us? It doesn't make any sense.

I'm an atheist and this is just powerful. I mean it's a beautiful common denominator that we all want guidance and love and our concept of God comes from that. There's just so much raw pain, hope, despair and joy in this piece. I always tear up a little.

Anyway, I took a look at some lyrics from a different source, and listened carefully through the piece again and I think the lyrics I have are a bit more accurate in some places. You might want to look them over. Good job though :)



I just want you to speak to me.

I'm still waiting for you, God. I pray because it deserves to be finished. Goodbye God, goodbye to you all.

I don't trust in any god. I don't know who God is, but I know what God should be.

Well take a look here. Take a good look at what you've created.

Hi God, this is Lorenzo, I want to ask you something. Why life is so hard? Why love is so cruel? Why I can't really be me, not someone else? I just want to be me.

Hey, God, this is Jambiel. I just called to thank you for being with me when life seemed to fall apart. You carried me through my darkest hours and I'm very grateful for that. Thank you.

Hi God, it's me, from Earth. I know you haven't returned any of my previous calls, but maybe you're simply not there. But here it goes again: I wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to be part of this world, but didn't you also give us people the minds to explore and question? So, where are you? And where have you been when we needed you the most?

It's --- speaking. I must be drunk or far away, for I no longer believe in you anymore. So I talked to another priestess, 'cause I figured this out: for all the horror, the grief and suffering in this world, either you are a cruel entity for not changing things, or you don't exist.

Please tell me why these horrible things happen. Why did those two towers have to fall and how can you let that happen? Does there have to be such hatred in this world? Why must society struggle so hard for tolerance?

I've prayed every day for weeks now - why won't you answer my prayers? Prove to me and so many others why I should continue to pray. I have faith in my friends and my family; isn't that enough?

Hello. Hello. Um, can you see me? Can you see that? I love you.

Please God, if you exist, help me believe that the world is real, that I am real, and that my feelings are real. That we are more than just a coincidence.

This world has what we can give.

Speak to me. I wont ask you to save me. I just want you to speak to me.

Hi, and I apologize to you for... you know. I just want to say I'm sorry and, thank you. Oh, and one more thing: please, help me fly.

Please, come and take me away from this shit. I cant take it anymore. They're all devouring me. I have no blood left. I'm so lost. God?

[English translation:] Dear God, why is there war? Why is there death? Why is there starvation? What for? What is your reason to be? Goodbye.

[English translation:] Hello God. I wonder, what are we? What's our importance in this world? Where are we going to?

Ah, yeah, er, listen God, um, I'd just like to say a really big 'thank you' on behalf of everybody. Thanks for getting the whole thing started, and for getting it off the ground, but, I think that this time we have really screwed things up, and I am so, so sorry.

I need you now. I need you.

Human suffering is sad.. Nobody should have to go through such pain as some of the people that are expressing themselves here.
