This song is generally about addiction, possibly lead singer Shaun Morgan's addictions. "The Remedy" is the metaphor for the addiction, and in the second half of the chorus, Morgan sings of freeing himself from its grip: "Clip the wings that get you high, and leave them where they lie." (thanks, Conor - Cork City, Ireland)
Amy Lee, who was Morgan's girlfriend at the time, appears in the video.

That old dirty booze gets you every bloody time. I liked to drink and drink a loads of beer and I mean the good stuff not that waterd down American piss they call beer here in America. I guess when you come from a society where drinking is the norm you don't think about the consequences until it gets its hooks into you. That in my opinion is how insidious drinking can be especially if you can't handle it.

love this song, no idea who seether is tho. lol anyways, I have two seether songs and this is my favorite. "Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail And so we go back to the remedy" to me, this song means that people, when in pain, always go to the quick, temporary solution, whether it be booze, drugs, or harassing (not sexually) people to share the misery. And the line "Hold your eyes closed, take me in" most likely refers to how these temporary solutions become a part of everyday life, and you think nothing of it. It's sad, but the message is important.
