"The Remedy" as written by and Lauren Christy Graham Edwards....
I could use
A shot
Your novocaine
My soul's a fuse
Blows away your name

Then you can be the remedy
And I can be the enemy
And he can go and live as nothing
They you can be the want to be
And I can be the remedy
And he can go to hell for all I care

Say this world is not so shallow
When you can't beg steal or borrow
Save your breath your soul is hollow
And it's all too much to swallow

Take this souvenir
They can't deny you were here
This scar always there
To medicate your fear

    General CommentI LOVE this song. I got a promo CD of it like two months ago, and when I found out they were playing River Stages this year I had to go. The band kicks so much ass, and they're really sweet, too. ^_^ (My friends and I ran em down and talked to them and stuff)

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my girlfriend, because I first listened and downloaded this right after I spent the entire school dance with her. But the true meaning of this song is one person needing another to save them.

    General Commentthis is a great song... i could seriously listen to it all day long and never get tired of it. its kinda creepy, but its a good song to listen to when your depressed... just because of how wonderful the music and his voice fits in perfectly.

    General CommentAlso, this song sounds eerily like Radiohead.

    General Commentsupposedly (i'm not to sure, here) this song is about mr. e, from eels, which tommy used to be a part of. the lyrics are definitely linked to the first track on "beautiful freak", the only eels album that tommy walter (of abandoned pools) was a part of. there are obvious references in "the remedy" to the song "novicain for the soul". tommy and e don't get along any more, as far as i know, and i believe that this song (in addition to others on the album) is tommy's response to e's "baby genius" on "electro-shock blues" [which is supposedly about tommy].

    General CommentI had heard this song on the radio and was dieing to find out who did it. I love this song and it had inspired me to get more of their music. And I agree with "the edge" it reminds me of Radiohead.

    General CommentActually, this song is about the music industry, and being apart of it. I was watching the video on MTV2, and a window popped up with the lead singer commenting on the song. He said it was about the twists and turns of the music industry, so.. I'll take his word for it. :)
