"The Only Medicine" as written by Brian Mcternan, Pouyan Sean Afkary, Peter Allen Costa, Chad Lane Crawford, Steven Christopher Kirby, Tyson Curtis Stevens and David John Wilson....
I wash it down, just to block out all the sound.
I never thought I'd be alone. Well look at me now.

Sleepless nights, painful goodbyes.
Who the hell was I kidding?
The room starts to spin,
All alone and bleeding once again.
Can you help me make this.. make this fucking end?

[Chorus]
Oh my god there must be something,
Something to take the pain away.
And so there's nothing you can give me.
It's probably better off that way.

Just forget, all I ever wanted was to forget.
Bloodshot eyes and a starless sky.
Who the hell are we kidding?

You look so content, I guess the bright side hasn't found me yet.
Pull me out so I can catch my breath.

[Chorus]

I live my life in the shadows of the things I try to hide.

[Chorus]

    General Commentthese lyrics have multiple imperfections here are the right ones!

    I wash it down, just to block out all the sound.
    I never thought I'd be alone. Well look at me now.

    Sleepless nights, painful goodbyes.
    Who the hell was I kidding?
    The room starts to spin,
    all alone and bleeding once again.
    Can you help me make this.. make this fucking end?

    [Chorus]
    Oh my God there must be something,
    Something to take the pain away.
    And so there's nothing you can give me.
    It's probably better off that way.

    Just forget, all I ever wanted was to forget.
    Bloodshot eyes and a starless sky.
    Who the hell are we kidding?

    You look so content, I guess the bright side hasn't found me yet.
    Pull me out so I can catch my breath.

    [Chorus]

    I live my life in the shadows of the things I try to hide.

    [Chorus]

    General CommentThe Song talkts about starting a relationship with some one because the mood was right "Bloodshots eyes and a starless sky
    Who the hell are we kidding?" . the relationship ends up being a mess.

    General Commentthis song is about a hurt that can never be forgotten. he has had some hurt and it hurts so much and he cant do anything about it and its stopping him from sleeping even. now hes looking for something to take the pain away but theres nothing he can find, but if anyone has Jesus he is full spiritually and Jesus would take the pain for him.

    General Commentthese lyrics are really beautiful, i think. but really, the meaning is something different, because lyrics could be taken metaphorically, and therefor could be taken any possible way to relate to the listener.

    i related to this song as a relationship that didnt work out, and that it hurt so much, but the person who hurt you cant help you feel better; and thats probably better because if they tried it would only be worse.
