I can tell you that it's never been
about doing this to pay the rent,
'cause going broke just playing shows
is worth it in the end
when anybody screams back at me
or tells me that they can relate
to the words I put down on a page -
I wouldn't have it any other way.
Remedy doesn't come easy
but doing this, it all becomes clear to me
'Cause all my anger and all my fears
depart from me when I stand here
Pouring out to people I don't know,
all the things that I never show
Even if we never make it
I'd never say that my time was wasted.
I'd take this life over anything
'Cause we're not
in this to get paid
Or so that they know
our faces or our names
This is the only thing that cuts through the numbness
The only thing that makes any sense
When all else crumbles around me,
this is what I know best.
This is our remedy
This is our clarity
This is our remedy,
this is our clarity
I'll take this life over anything
they tell me I should be.
