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"

    I love seether! And the way they get their point across is very smart! It makes you think, and that's what they want. And, after listening to it for the millionth time, I think this song is about fighting his drug addiction and wanting to go back so bad. It really sounds - to me - like its mostly what withdrawal feels like but as a song. It was probably mellower than actual withdrawal, though.

    And if you watch the video, his eyes are bloodshot, he looks very... Not him, the kids wandering around the amusement park are overreacting (even though that stuff is pretty strange). It just seems to me like they wanted you to think it was just another great song, but subliminally realize they were high.

    Seether writes awesome songs, no doubt. We don't really know the meaning of this song, but I'm pretty sure that's why so many people like it. Just like Nirvana, know one really knows what the songs mean.
    Only the people who write them do and their probably not sure either.

    I'm pretty sure this song was wrote about drug addiction, more specifically, the lead singer's drug addiction. The main lyrics, "Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail, and so it goes back to the remedy", he's talking about withdrawl and how you brake into it by going back to 'the remedy', the drug, which really isn't.
    Then the lyrics "Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie, and tell yourself 'You'll be the death of me.'" are saying to quit taking the drug, since they get you high and will eventually kill you. That part, though, I was thinking how the 'wings' bring you up into the air, or 'high', but the higher you go, the thinner the air gets. So keep using those 'high wings' and you'll die from lack of oxygen, so you clip them.
    But that's just the weirdo in me talking. XD

    Oh, yeah. Seether never really write songs that suppose to have meaning. They just throw in words that comes to their mind.
