Song Description

About turning away from unhealthy relationships and ways of thinking and realizing how destructive they can be, and about turning toward something more positive.

Story Behind the Song

I went to Eureka Springs, Arkansas, where they have mineral baths that were particularly famous around the turn of the century when rich people would go there to "take the cure", meaning dry out from addiction. I realized that my recent break-up was the r

Lyrics

Taking the Cure

I been livin' in this world such a long time
People even tell me I'm wise
But don't you believe it, 'cause I know the truth
I'm just another lost soul in disguise

And I don't know more than you do
I'm just tired of all this voodoo,
All your well?intentioned lies
I don't need your potions, midnight medications
I just need to open my eyes

I'M TAKIN' THE CREDIT AND I'M TAKIN' THE BLAME
BUT I'VE TAKEN ALL THAT I CAN ENDURE
I USED TO BE ADDICTED TO YOU
BUT I'M TAKING THE CURE

Taken lots of detours to the bad part of town
The one my mama warned me about
Where the hard times are harder, the good times are never
Quite good enough to get out

Seen lots of people got lots of troubles
But trouble's always easy to buy
And the only way to beat it is just not to need it
Especially if you want to survive

Now I've seen love that heals like the waters
Cleanses you and sets you free
But this love that you offer is just a fix in the dark
That's all that it can ever be

Now we turn away from Eden, turn away from light
Learn to turn the other cheek
Now we turn on each other, turn on our lovers
Turn on everything that's weak
