Come close my baby girl
I've got something I need to say
I'll miss you my darling child
I'm so sorry I gotta go away
So say goodbye cos daddy's going to heaven now
So say goodbye cos daddy's going to heaven now

Remember I've no regrets
Remember I'll never forget
You gave me joy and blind delight
You gave me faith and shone so bright
You gave me reason and I'm proud of you
Be good be strong be honest and true

So say goodbye cos daddy's going to heaven now
Say goodbye cos daddy's going to heaven now
Say goodbye cos daddy's going to heaven now
Say goodbye cos daddy's going to heaven now
Say goodbye cos daddy's going to heaven
Now

I'm so tired now so frail and so weak
I've been fighting so long I need release
I've never been scared scared to die
Don't mourn for me don't even cry
Cos when sleep comes to end this pain
I know in my heart I will see you again

So say goodbye cos daddy's going to heaven now
Say goodbye cos daddy's going to heaven now
Say goodbye cos daddy's going to heaven now
Say goodbye cos daddy's going to heaven now
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

    Indeed it is, tru!

    I just re-acquired this song after my cd was stolen about eight years ago, and I just noticed the kids during the intro are singing "Yes, Jesus Loves Me." I got shivers.

    Song Fact

    The song was written by Hussey during a period where his then-wife, Kelly Hussey, was going through the process of losing her father.

So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

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.

This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
