Well, that was some performance you gave at the Albert's Dam
Oh Sri Lanka, hilarious
And by the way you missed nothing after leaving

I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
Spend my life in the shade of the morning sun

I feel so extraordinary
Something's got a hold on me
I get this feeling I'm in motion
A sudden sense of liberty
I don't care 'cause I'm not there
And I don't care if I'm here tomorrow
Again and again I've taken too much
Of the things that cost you too much

    General CommentI read the first several comments.
    By the title alone, it's about believing in faith. (Does that make sense?) Most people thought that too, until the songwriter himself revealed the answer. It's officially about drug dependency. Someone mentioned "this song is about organized religion just being another drug". That's a good point but this song is supposed to be positive, not negative.

    There are a number of reasons why we can interpret it differently.

    1. The songwriter wasn't a drug addict himself, neither am I. So the song doesn't tell you how drug dependency really feels like. And you don't wanna know.

    2. In order to make it a hit, the producer made them change the lyrics. It's exactly what producers should do. Now everybody can relate to this song one way or another.

    3. the new wave melody is so positive and bright. There's nothing dark or depressing here. Not like drugs.

    4. The title is still "True Faith", which seems unrelated to drugs. Religious people yada yada. I'm a pagan and this is how I interpret the song.

    My interpretation 1: Counter-terrorist. After a long day and long night of intense action, Jack Bauer sees the morning sun and thinks "I used to think that this day would never come".

    2. The plane crash in Lost. John Locke's plane crashed and now he can move his legs. "I feel so extraordinary, something's got ahold of me." The Island is the true faith here.

    3. Generally, it can be about a true faith in whatever you believe in. and the lyrics always seem to apply. The lyrics seem so flexible.
