"Hunger for the Great Light" as written by David John Matthews, Mark Christopher Batson, Stefan K. Lessard, Carter A. Beauford, Leroi H. Moore and Boyd C. Tinsley....
Oh great light, of love
Oh great light, of love
Oh great light, of love
Oh great light, of love

Here you go the dirty girl
Good, God, try to love to try to ahh
God, love is a lively sight
Do you know who needs you?

I want to be your hunger
I want to see you open wide
And when I go down for you
I want to blow your mind

It's
So good of you
To love you

You and I
Such a pretty thing
Smile, smile
You know you thrill me
Cross your heart, and hope to die
You know I'd love to

I want to be your hunger
I want to see you open wide
And when I go down for you
I want to blow your mind

You and I, uh, uh
Shine, shine

Oh great light of mine
Oh great light of mine
Oh great light, of love
Oh great light, of love

You come is like an answer prayer
Praise God
Try to love try to ah
I have the new dusted eye
Ooo oh, I love you

I want to be you hungry
I want to see you open wide
And when I go down for you
I want to blow your mind

You, you, hey yeah
You, you not I
You, you ohh

    General CommentThis song was first created when Stefan was expirementing with the guitar, once he finished the grunge jam he told Dave to make the lyrics about dirty sex....and he certainly suceeded

    General CommentIncorrect lyric: "I have the little death delight"

    It's really "I have (a/the) little death to die."

    This may SEEM random until you consider the fact that the root of the word "orgasm" is French for "the little death."

    General CommentI LOVE the explanation of this song on antsmarching.net: "Rapunzel for dummies."

    That basically sums it up, I think.

    General Commentmy favorite part is at the end when the mellow instramental kicks in. the song is like hot hot sex. uninhibited and raw and then at the end completly satisfying and euphoric.

    General CommentI’m pretty sure the "kill" lyric is correct. It is in keeping with the "little death" orgasm reference. Also, just to be accurate, it's not fellatio, it's cunnilingus. He’s giving, not receiving.

    General Commentahh.. Hunger for the Great Light. This was the first song to really grab me from the new and exciting Stand Up. They lyrics aren't really phenomenal, but this song reminds me a little of Rapunzel, in the sense that it is so sexual. It's very catchy though, really makes you wanna "stand up" (haha, not funny i know) Anyway, I had my doubts about this cd but I'm starting to warm up to it and I have this song to thank.

    General CommentGREAT SONG... probably best of Stand Up along with Dream Girl... BigEyedFish and AmericanBaby are right, stefan made the riff on the guitar and wanted dave to make the lyrics about dirty sex
