"The Other Side" as written by Daniel Michael Thomas Williams, Paul Michael Canning, James John Singer, Dave Troke and Mark Edward Pusey....
Going down to the river
There's a man I want to see
Yea he's the ferryman
He'll recognize me
I'm going down now to the riverside
There's a place I want to be
I'm going to talk to the ferryman
He'll be expecting me
I'm crossing over now to the other side
Life is better there on the other side
The grass is greener there on the other side
And I I get even there on the other side
And everything will turn out all right
On the other side
I'm crossing over now to the other side
The other side
I walked by the church house late last night
Yea I walked by the church house but I didn't go inside
'Cause I I once slept with the preacher's wife
She handed me a ticket to the other side
I'm crossing over now to the other side
To the other side

    Song Meaningi feel like this song is, at least in some level, an allusion to Herman Hesse's famous novel, Siddhartha. Siddhartha comes across a ferryman who takes him to the other side of the river and his life transforms from one stage to the next, from that of the monk to that of the material. later on in the novel, Siddhartha once again has the ferryman take him back and he goes back to the spiritual life and becomes a ferryman himself. i think the lyrics to this song might be a play on that concept.
