Standing still, at the edge of time
There waits a nation for that final sign
Filled with dreams for the Land they know
The home that they were promised long ago

Listen close, and you'll hear their song
It tells of how they waited for so long
Yet they know that the day is near
There's something in the air
That says:

The time is now, so keep on trying
Here and now, there's no denying
What we could achieve,
if we would only believe
One more mitzvah is all that we need...

Can't you tell, it's almost over
Any day we'll hear that shofar
And then when we do
We'll know that golus is through
We can do it, now is the time...

Time goes by, and the days are long
But we the nation keep the faith that strong
Deep inside it's because we know
That very soon it will be time to go

Time to see why the world began
To know the end of that eternal plan
All along it was meant to be
This is our destiny,

And the time is now, so keep on trying
Here and now, there's no denying
What we could achieve,
if we would only believe
One more mitzvah is all that we need...

Sound the call, it's almost over
One and all, we'll hear that shofar
And then when we do
We'll know that golus is through
We can do it, listen well
The time is *now!*

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

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.

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”
