    The man takes another bullet
    He keeps them all within
    He must seek no matter how it hurts
    So don't fool again

    He thinks the answer is cold and in his hand
    He takes his medicine
    The man takes another bullet
    He's been fooled again

    Uncross your arms
    Take and throw 'em to the cure, say...
    I do believe

    Uncross your arms now
    Take 'em too,and say...
    I do believe
    Yeah, I do believe

    The lies tempt her she follows
    Again she lets him in
    She must believe to fill the hollow
    She's been fooled again

    Uncross your arms
    Take and throw them to the cure, say...
    I do believe

    Uncross your arms now
    Take 'em too,and say...
    I do believe
    Oh yeah, I do believe

    Betting on the cure
    It must get better than this
    Betting on the cure
    Yeah everyone's gotta have the sickness
    'Cause everyone seems to need the cure
    Precious cure

    Betting on the cure
    'Cause it must get better than this
    Betting on the cure
    Yeah everyone's gotta have the sickness
    'Cause everyone seems to need the cure
    Precious cure

    I do believe

    Betting on the cure
    It must get better than this
    Need to feel secure
    Yeah it's got to get better than this, this, this
    It must get better than this
    Betting on the cure
    Everyone's gotta to have the sickness
    'Cause everyone seems to need the cure

  • 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.
