  • Throw your dollar bills and leave your thrills all here with me
    And speak but don't pretend I won't defend you anymore you see
    It aches in every bone, I'll die alone, but not for you
    My eyes don't need to see that ugly thing, I know it's me you fear
    If you want me hold me back

    Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
    And so we go back to the remedy
    Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
    And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me"

    I don't need a friend, I need to mend so far away
    So come sit by the fire and play a while, but you can't stay too long
    It aches in every bone, I'll die alone, but not for pleasure
    I see my heart explode, it's been eroded by the weather here
    If you want me hold me back

    Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
    And so we go back to the remedy
    Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
    And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me"
    Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
    And so we go back to the remedy
    Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
    And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me"

    Hold your eyes closed, take me in
    Hold your eyes closed, take me in

    Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
    And so we go back to the remedy
    Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
    And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me"
    Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
    And so we go back to the remedy
    Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
    And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me" Writer/s: BRANDON CASEY, BRANDON D CASEY, BRIAN CASEY, BRIAN D CASEY, BRYAN MICHAEL PAUL COX

  • Josh's Girl from ConnecticutThis song is awesome!
    "Frail-the skin is dry and pale" I believe that line right there is talking about shooting up, and how the "pain will never fail and so we go back to the remedy" for me, this holds true. No one wants to feel emotional pain (ending a relationship, the death of a loved one) so what do you do? Revert back to the "remedy" grab that needle and find a vein.
  • Kayla from Ione, CaI agree w/ erik down at the bottom lol This song converted me to rock lol :)
  • Roach from Nowhere, GermanyWhere does Amy Lee appear in the video??? Can't see her anywhere.
  • Joel from Victoria, Capetown, South AfricaThat 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.
  • Shannon from Kalkaka, MiI have alwys loved music like this... I never knew why but somthing about it just makes me wanna headbang to it over & over again LOL
  • Blake from Chico, Calove 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.
  • Erik from Brownwood , Txi got a friend that would absolutely loves seether. he got me hooked on seether so i am starting to like alt.rock and this was the song that attracted me.
