Remedy
Seether Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

Throw your dollar bills and leave your thrills all here with me
And speak but don't pretend I won't defend you anymore you see
It aches in every bone, I'll die alone, but not for you
My eyes don't need to see that ugly thing, I know it's me you fear
If you want me hold me back

Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
And so we go back to the remedy
Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me"

I don't need a friend, I need to mend so far away
So come sit by the fire and play a while, but you can't stay too long
It aches in every bone, I'll die alone, but not for pleasure
I see my heart explode, it's been eroded by the weather here
If you want me hold me back

Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
And so we go back to the remedy
Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me"
Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
And so we go back to the remedy
Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me"

Hold your eyes closed, take me in
Hold your eyes closed, take me in

Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
And so we go back to the remedy
Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me"
Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
And so we go back to the remedy
Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me"

Line by Line Meaning

Throw your dollar bills and leave your thrills all here with me
Give me all your money and live life vicariously through me


And speak but don't pretend I won't defend you anymore you see
Be honest with me because I won't cover for your lies anymore


It aches in every bone, I'll die alone, but not for you
I'm in a lot of pain and I'll die alone but it has nothing to do with you


My eyes don't need to see that ugly thing, I know it's me you fear
I don't need to see your negative opinion of me, I already know you're afraid of who I am


If you want me hold me back
If you want to keep me, hold me back


Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
The speaker's body is weak and in pain, and will always be so


And so we go back to the remedy
The speaker returns to the solution to their pain


Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
Let go of the things that take you to unhealthy heights, and just leave them where they are


And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me"
Confront yourself with the reality of your negative habits and recognize the damage they can do


I don't need a friend, I need to mend so far away
The speaker needs to heal themselves, and distance themselves from others to do so


So come sit by the fire and play a while, but you can't stay too long
Others are welcome to spend time with the speaker, but they can't depend on them for too long


It aches in every bone, I'll die alone, but not for pleasure
The speaker's pain is all-encompassing, and they will die alone but not because they want to


I see my heart explode, it's been eroded by the weather here
The speaker's heart has been damaged and weakened by the harsh conditions they have endured


Hold your eyes closed, take me in
Close your eyes and focus on being with the speaker


Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
The speaker's physical and emotional state is still fragile and in pain


And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me"
Face the harsh reality that your negative behaviors are harmful and could be your downfall
