"The Cure For Pain" is the first single from singer/songwriter Jon Foreman's debut solo EP, Fall. It was "released" Monday, December 10, 2007 as a free download on popular networking site Myspace's homepage.
About "The Cure For Pain," Foreman has said, "I wrote this one in Texas on a day off. I was reflecting on the passing of time. I have been playing music in Switchfoot for about ten years. During that period, I have been fighting pain or running away from it in a myriad of ways. And yet the pain is a constant. I have had some amazing moments singing gravity away but the water keeps on falling. I began to think of the suffering I see around me, I think of the pain of a grandmother dying of cancer. Of a friend killed by a train. I think of the pain of death, of failure, of rejection, the pain of a father losing his only son. And I came to the conclusion that I cannot run from pain any longer."
