"Cure For Pain" as written by and Mark J. Sandman....
Where is the ritual
And tell me where where is the taste
Where is the sacrifice
And tell me where where is the faith

Someday there'll be a cure for pain
That's the day I throw my drugs away
When they find a cure for pain
Where is the cave

Where the wise woman went
And tell me where
Where's all that money that I spent
I propose a toast to my self control

You see it crawling helpless on the floor
Someday there'll be a cure for pain
That's the day I throw my drugs away
When they find a cure for pain

When they find a cure for pain
When they find a cure find a cure for pain

    General CommentCan someone tell me what the deal is here? Are there two different songs, "Cure..." and "cure..." or just two sets of lyrics to the same music?

    General CommentSomeone mislabeled one of them. This is "Cure For Pain" and the other is actually "I'm Free Now"

    General CommentFew song's better encapsulate the lure of the needle better than "Cure for Pain". Morphine's lack of guitar driven ballads kept them from ascending to Rock Stardom, but their catalog is on par with virtually any group performing in the 90's. Cure for Pain may be their crowning achievement, while also naming the true makeup of an addict.

    No one sets out to become an addict, it is brought about by chance and circumstance. Take someone that life has been dealt one too many blows, at their near breaking point, and present them with a pill that can ease the hurt. In their desperation to escape the hurt they accept, and for a brief time the pain evaporates and they are again in harmony with the world. Yet, peace is fleeting and they are left with an emptiness that is soon occupied by renewed pain.

    Set adrift on a vicious tide, we will cling to the nearest branch. And so the cycle begins. Each time the emptiness demands more to stave off the pain. With a soul in disrepair, the addict cedes to emptiness if only to hold the hurt at bay.

    We all will know pain at some point, and thus all reside within the reach of the needle's delicate sting.

    The Sandman knew the sting but alas did not find the cure. Yet a plaintive wail of hope still echoes wherever "Cure for Pain" sounds in the grey of night.
