"Remedy" as written by and Sadler/isbell/hayes/boxley/ridenhour/drayton/smith....
I don't love how you love
But please don't leave me here alone
I don't feel how you feel
But it's my fault I'm bones

I don't die how you died
I can't just waste away
You keep changing your mind
Everyday

If it burns I'll be doing the same dream
If you fall I'll remember the same thing
I don't want your Remedy

I don't fall how you fall
I won't hold on you can't let go
When it's pain I feared
I made you take it slow

I don't cry how you cry
There's nothing left to me
You keep changing my life
Everyday

If it burns I'll be doing the same dream
If you fall I'll remember the same thing
I don't want your Remedy

If it burns I'll be doing the same dream
If you fall I'll remember the same thing
I don't want your Remedy

I don't want
I don't need
I don't want
Remedy

I don't want Remedy!

If it burns I'll be doing the same dream
If you fall I'll remember the same thing
I don't want your Remedy

    General CommentI wana see them in concert. This song is great. I can relate to the first half.

    I think its about someone who pushes away everyone and they realize this and they know its there fault but they cant help but do it anyways

    General CommentIt sounds like every person in America who thinks they're different from everyone else. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but unfortunately, it sounds like everyone else with too much "angst."

    It's about someone who lives totally differently from the people around him, and he doesn't want their help to see him through.

    General CommentDamn, such a great song to listen to on the road. But yea, I agree that it seems to be about somebody not going for help from others. If he falls, he'll remember to get back up (save game). He marches to the beat of his own drum, he'll fix his own mistakes, live his own life. I don't necessarily agree with this viewpoint on life but that seems to be the case with this person. Like every person in America? I wouldn't go that far ;) But I may agree with the angst part, that everyone is wrapped up in their own personal fable, the little drama that goes on in their head when blowing things out of proportion.

    General CommentI think it's more of his take on truth rather then adhering to the concept of "ignorance is bliss"

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who is totally diferent from the others around him and he is feeling bad that way, but doesn't want the help of the others to change, wants to do all by himself.

    Btw, not only the lyric, this music is also great, congrats to the band.

    General CommentTo me this song isn't a general "I'm so different from everyone else" song.
    This is a direct point to someone specific. Or so it sounds to me.

    The writer/speaker makes a big deal of pointing out that he is not the same as this person he is talking about. This person seems to have laid back while their life passed them by (losing themselves to alcoholism or drug abuse) and the speaker will not do the same. He will chase his dreams until he dies, he will let life happen and move on when it doesn't go the way he wants - unlike whomever he's talking to.

    The 'remedy' is whatever crutch that person was using. Whatever numbed them enough to allow their lost dreams and life to just waste away and die. The speaker doesn't want this 'remedy'. He'd rather fight and feel the pain.
