Let love shine

Gotta gotta know
I see the sun in your eyes
Let me take your hand
And we'll go to wonderland
I bet you've asked silly questions
Like do I still love you
Better believe it, honey

'Cause you're the girl from the east of the river
'Cause you're the girl from the east of the river
'Cause you're the girl from the east of the river

They all went mad
On the way out west, hells bells baby
But you can bet your bottom dollar
That my arch full flame
May win you over, bring it back, bring it back, bring it back c'mon now baby
I'm the lie that tells the truth

'Cause you're the girl from the east of the river
'Cause you're the girl from the east of the river

Where the grass is always greener
And the pavements
Are all paved with gold
Please please don't be told
C'mon I said east of the river

I don't want to work for nobody but you

You're the girl from the east of the river
You're the girl from the east of the river
You're the girl from the east of the river
You're the girl from the east of the river

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.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
