And so, I shamefully yet proudly present the bootlegos I just couldn’t turn away from (so far).

The Beauty of Pain

Pain is daze
Pain is a doorway

Pain is a journey
Pain is discovery

Pain is mind
Pain is soul
Pain is a dark, bottomless hole

Pain is clarity
Pain is reality

Pain is wisdom
Pain is freedom

Pain is courage
Pain is strength
Pain is inconspicuously evident

Pain is inspiring
Pain is awakening

Pain is expression
Pain is passion

Pain is universal
Pain is immortal
