There you go
Flashing fever from your eyes
Hey babe
Come over here and shut them tight

I'm not denying
We're flying above it all
Hold my hand, don't let me fall
You've such amazing grace
I've never felt this way

Oh, show me Heaven, cover me
Leave me breathless
Oh, show me Heaven please

Here I go
I'm shaking just like the breeze
Hey babe
I need your hand to steady me

Aah, I'm not denying
I'm frightened a much as you
Though I'm barely touching you
I've shivers down my spine
Oh, and it feels divine

Oh, show me Heaven, cover me
Leave me breathless
Oh, show me Heaven please, yeah

If you know what it's like
To dream a dream
Baby hold me tight and let this be, yeah
(Show me Heaven, cover me)
Leave me breathless
Oh, show me Heaven if you please, oh
(Show me, baby) show me Heaven, oh
(Show me Heaven, cover me) show me Heaven
Leave me breathless, oh
Show me Heaven if you please, if you please, if you please, oh
Show me Heaven
(Show me Heaven, cover me) show me Heaven
Leave me breathless, oh (leave me breathless)
Show me Heaven if you please, if you please, if you please, oh
Show me Heaven, cover me

He certainly did earn that reputation.

Ministry
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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
