Antidote

  • songfacts ®
  • The second track on Evil Enough runs to 4 minutes 47 seconds and like all the other tracks on this 2008 album was written by Tara Lynch. It contains some splendiferous guitar but antidote to what? Her answer was uncompromising: "An antidote is something that relieves or counteracts whatever is hurting you... My antidote is other men when the man I am the closest to hurts me so much. I'm only human."

    As she is a married woman, it's probably best not to press that any further!

    She did add though: "The lowest voice you hear in the chorus, however, is the appropriately demonic background vocal of Brent Woods." >>
