"The Cure" as written by Kimberley Kenneth Benzie, Stewart Alexander Hill, Luke Williams and Luke Palmer....
This feels insane
The less you know
Now is worth more than anything
You will engage and breathe it
Toxic
The burn

Show me where the progress exists
Without the protest
Hide behind the faint lines
Built beside the same lines

Even though it's not in your view
You're a part of a bigger chain
Gaping holes worn through weeping walls
It's right in front of you
We're holding the blade

This feels insane
Wealth before our own worth
Programmed to obey
We are the slaves who object in silence
The herd

Even though it's not in your view
You're a part of a bigger chain
Gaping holes worn through weeping walls
It's right in front of you
We're holding the blade

Feed me now the cure

Even though it's not in your view
You're a part of a bigger chain
Gaping holes worn through weeping walls
It's right in front of you
Even thought it's not in your view
You're a link in a bigger chain
Gaping holes through weeping walls

It's right in front of you

The path they gave you is worn
By the countless enslaved
Confused alone
Hopelessly gazing through that hole
They're fed their only light

    Song MeaningI love how both their albums are based around similar themes. Corruption. Conforming. Global political issues.

    The last stanza resonates with me particularly:
    "The path they gave you is worn by the countless enslaved, confused and alone
    Hopelessly gazing through that hole they're fed their only light"

    Kim has stated that the album is dark (most especially this song) because he feels we are inadvertently responsible for the things happening on TV, he connects our apathy with what is happening in the world.

    I can see that point of view very clearly in this song having read that.

    "Show me where the progress exists
    Without the protest"

    People get fired up about certain issues but do they actually DO anything about them? No. We all turn a blind eye. We all think it's somebody else's problem to solve. Nobody takes responsibility.

    "Programmed to obey
    We are the slaves who object in silence
    The herd"

    We follow the crowd. 'Object in silence' - how true that is! Kim, you're a genius.
