[Verse 1: Foxes]
High dive into frozen waves where the past comes back to life
Fight fear for the selfish pain, it was worth it every time
Hold still right before we crash cause we both know how this ends
A clock ticks 'till it breaks your glass and I drown in you again

[Hook: Foxes]
Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't need
Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don't know why
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?

[Bridge: Foxes]
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?

[Verse 2: Foxes]
Walk on through a red parade and refuse to make amends
It cuts deep through our ground and makes us forget all common sense
Don't speak as I try to leave cause we both know what we'll choose
If you pulled and I push too deep then I'll fall right back to you

[Hook: Foxes]
Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't need
Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don't know why
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?

[Interlude: Foxes]
Why are you my clarity?
Why are you my remedy?
Why are you my clarity?
Why are you my remedy?

[Bridge: Foxes]
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?

    Clarity is about a relationship that is not going well. In the hook, the artist sings "You are the piece of me, I wish I didn't need," I believe this means that she loves him like crazy, but honestly wishes she didn't. It also call their love both tragedy and insanity and asks why he is the remedy and clarity. To her, their relationship is a mess and she hates him, but she loves him at the same time. She wants it to end but doesn't want to lose her clarity and a piece of her. She also talks about how after a fight they both know who she'll choose (Him!). They lose all common sense, and refuse to make amends. The mood is very dark and sad hidden by a pop-ish beat, like most songs.

    Hi yall! It's me isabella. I also like this song and I don't really have a meaning. If you guys haven't known me yet, just look at my comments in katy perry - roar. I just told you where to look because I am way too lazy to type it again. I like this song because I think it's dramatic. Not that I like drama or anything. I now have a meaning. I think the verses 1 and 2 say that you are too weak to go on. But you are working with the one you did.

    I feel that it's about a couple who aren't meant for each other. But even though they go through so much trouble with each other, and that they shouldn't carry on the relationship any more, the girl herself still feels that the boy means a lot to her and is an inseparable part of her life.
    The girl doesn't particularly understand why she feels that way, because she hasn't been treated well in their relationship together. Her mind is in turmoil as she tries to fight her way through those emotions that suppress her from wanting to end the relationship, as she still feels that she loves him, needs him and has become dependent on him.

    Some relationships just feel that way, to the world is insanity, but to the couple is clarity! They compliment each other. And maybe everyone else thinks it shouldn't be, but how do you let go of a part of you. You just can't! And love does make you loose all common sense and you are drawn to that person no matter what life throws in your way. Some people call it destiny.

    I think the song is about if you meet a cute boy then you should not just wait for your destiny with him, you make it happen. And also that you think your too weak to go through a breakup but you try to get over it but the boy meant something to you. "You are the piece of me i wish i didn't need" -Zedd T5hat means that you want to forget about a boy but you love him too much! : D
