The Cure's original line-up consisted of Robert Smith (vocals, guitars), Laurence "Lol" Tolhurst (drums) and Michael Dempsey (bass guitar). The band has continued through various line-ups; Smith is the group's only remaining original member. The Cure felt what I imagine the disciples of Jesus experienced with the parable of the sower and His conversation with the disciples afterwards. This is a well crafted parable and teaching in parallel. It is so easy to hide behind the masks of other peoples and our own expectations.
