We believe in a drug free America
A drug free America for me
That's the way we believe
The way that it should be

Drug free America for me

Like in Amsterdam where drugs
Are bought and sold legally
Let's take it one step further
And make them all for free

Drug free America for me

Say "nope to dope" when its not for free
Say "ugh to drugs" save your money
Don't listen to facts just sit back
And relax and help make our country
Drug free

    the lyrics here are a bit wrong it say "thats what we believe in, the way that it should be" not Thats the way believe, the way that it should be"

    and i think that this is a good plan if there was a drug free canada though would be better, cuz it would save my money

    This song has one of my favorite intros! The transition from the intro into the actual song is great!

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.
