Cure

  • This song speaks of the instant gratification attitude many Americans have. The lyrics, "Everyone's gotta to have the sicknessCause everyone seems to need the cure" shows the want for something. It's saying. "Fix me. I don't want to take the time out of my day to find out what's wrong, you do it!" >>

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjYeah, most likely alchohol. "He thinks the answer is cold and in his hand/he takes his medicine."
  • Jeremy from Lafayette, La I think it's about drugs. Because everyone starts out not "needing" it. They're just curios. And then they kind of find out later, that they have grown to need it.
  • Nick from Paramus, NjThis song was originally going to be called "Believe" because of the chorus.
