I knew a woman
Never knew no one like her
She said, "The world's made up of angels
Beautiful and fair"

She would give you anything
Just give it all away
Just for one true moment
Believing love would stay

You're a bright light girl
Shine into this world
Now you know your love is coming true

You're a bright light girl
In a disbelieving world
Now someone believes as much as you
And now you know he really loves you too

She opened up for trouble
And saw him come on strong
But when he could not meet her eyes
She thought she'd done it wrong

Each time love abused her
She would take the shame
Each time love would lose her
She would take the blame

No, you're a bright light girl
Shine into this world
Now you know your love is coming true

Bright light girl
In a disbelieving world
Now someone believes as much as you
And now you know he really loved you too

You never lost your magic vision
Always in your sight
Special intuition
Telling you, it's gonna be alright

Oh, yeah, you're a bright light girl
Shine into this world
Now you know your love is coming true

You're a bright light girl
In a disbelieving world
Now someone believes as much as you
And now somebody really loves you too

Come on, shine on
Shine on girl

    Its about a girl that has been taken advantage of and walked all over for so long, but has finally found a man that truly loves her.

Step
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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
